Way Cool Movie! Loved it!:)
27 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

I just recently watched The Surge (or the Source) and I was so pleased with it. I actually have it rented out at two different Blockbusters at once because I watched it with several of my friends by my home (whom all liked it) and when I went to work they all wanted to see it so I had to go get it from a different one for them (they all liked it too). I love two different types of movies; paranormal power movies such as X-men and ones when the underdogs get some revenge like Romy and Michele. This had both:)! Some may feel that teenagers are cruel but not that cruel, they must be over-mean for the movie...hello from my school. This is a picture-perfect reflection of my high school days, teachers (who play favorites and least favorites) and students (bullies, nerds, jocks, gothic, and rich snobs). All schools have these cliques so I think everyone can identify with one of the four main characters. Being an underdog my whole school existence I loved the fact that these four got back at some of their oppressors. It may be a "B" movie, as some label it, and although some of the effects weren't spectacular I must say one of the coolest effects I've ever seen on screen came from this movie. You'll just have to watch it to find out. A tad cheesy at some points but who said it would win an Oscar. A movies job is to entertain someone for 2 hours or so and I was very entertained, I even cheered at some points in the movie. I liked the cast alot, the plot, and especially the music. Oh, how I love techno. My only complaint is there is no soundtrack available cause I so want the music from this movie. Final words on the matter: I would highly recommend this movie!!
