When a trio of men with telekinetic power led by Adrian Geiger robs an armored car, the skeptical FBI agents Jordan Ripps and her partner Frank McIntyre do not believe in the testimony of the witnesses about the powerful skills of the gang. Meanwhile, the former FBI agent Raymond Addison is chasing Geiger, who was a survival of his special force of powerful men, and blackmails the physics professor Zachary Shefford, using him to find the location where Geiger, his daughter Tristen Geiger and their community of telekinetic people are placed. The reunion of Geiger and Addison will lead them to a tragic consequence. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

When a trio of men with telekinetic power leaded by Adrian Geiger (Michael Massee) robs an armored car, the skeptical FBI agents Jordan Ripps (Teri Hatcher) and her partner Frank McIntyre do not believe in the testimony of the witnesses about the powerful skills of the gang. Meanwhile, the former FBI agent Raymond Addison (Louis Gossett Jr.) is chasing Geiger, who was a survival of his special force of powerful men, and blackmails the physics professor Zachary Shefford (Grayson McCouch), using him to find the location where Geiger, his daughter Tristen Geiger (Nicki Aycox) and their community of telekinetic people are placed. The reunion of Geiger and Addison will lead them to a tragic consequence.

"Momentum" is not a bad movie, as indicated in many reviews. Although being a low-budget TV movie, it is Indeed a good entertainment. The story uses elements of "Scanners", "The Fury", "Firestarter" and other sci-fi stories, but I liked it. The beauty of Teri Hatcher is still very impressive, but the weak unknown actor Michael Massee with his expressionless face spoils the important and key character of Adrian Geiger. Having some improvements in the screenplay, better special effects and a better actor in the role of Geiger, "Momentum" might be a great movie. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Momentum – Ameaça Indestrutível" ("Momentum – Indestructible Menace")
