Director Garret Williams expands on his short film of 1996 of the same title. Not having seen the first one, we took a chance at the newest version when it showed up on cable recently. Basically, the main interest was the presence of Terrence Howard, one of our most talented young actors working currently in films.

"Spark" falls into the category of road movie since its principals, Byron and Nina are traveling by car from Chicago to Los Angeles, where they plan to settle down. A lot of things happen to this pair along the way. Worst of all is the mistake they make in befriending Mooney, who is a loose canon and who plays heavily in the development of the story.

Terrence Howard had been acting for a while, so this is not his first job, yet, the actor doesn't seem to have the the same 'spark' that marks his better appearances in the cinema. He was still a few years away from "Hustle & Flow", perhaps his best work, so far. His Byron is an enigma the way it comes on the screen, following Mr. Williams' direction, or maybe the way the character was conceived. Brendan Sexton III does good work as Mooney.

A film for fans of this talented actor that will watch Mr. Howard in anything he appears.
