Eva Soderstrom mentions the Tunguska event in Siberia to Steven Price. She states it happened in 1907, when in fact it actually occurred 30 June 1908. She refers to Tunguska as a place, while Tunguska actually refers to the Stony Tunguska River. The nearest actual place to the Tunguska event site, per Google Maps, is Vanavara, Russia, about 40 miles south of the location of the Tunguska event site. See more »

abuse of science thriller marginally OK, not worth looking for though
2 January 2005 | by FieCrierSee all my reviews

There's no black hole sucking down a city street as depicted on the video box cover, so let's dismiss that from the start. There's something sort of like that in the floor of a laboratory.

As it starts, a particle accelerator lab is doing an experiment that its chief does not approve of, but which the physicist played by Malcolm McDowell has somehow pulled rank and gotten through - though he is 5,000 miles away. Lucky for him he wasn't there, too, since everybody dies.

Years later, he's up to the same thing, expecting it to work this time (he's actually on site). The daughter of the chief who died in the previous experiment hopes to find proof of what happened, and learns it's about to happen again, only worse.

It's not a bad movie, though overlong. I thought on its apparent budget it did make good use of special effects. Not worth seeking out, though, unless you're a particular fan of any of the lead actors.
