Not that bad...
2 January 2003 | by xtasy123See all my reviews

Well, it was not that bad, considering the budget. Many people compare it to "The Craft", but concept wise, I think its geared more towards "X-Men", "Generation-X", & "Fantastic Four".

The characters were well acted. I beleive the main characters had potential, & the story was great. The effects weren't straight outta "Matrix" or anything, but we must remember this is a straight-to-video flick. - It would definately make a kool TV series! I rented the DVD which also has a lil' "Behind The Scenes" featurette. All around, u can definately tell these people had fun making this movie.

Not that bad to watch. I enjoyed it. & I will prob get the DVD.
