Terrorist and Nuclear reactor is a bad mix
26 August 2011 | by ebiros2See all my reviews

Terrorist takes over a nuclear power plant in Southern California, and state department tries to control the situation.

Fencing match between the US government, and the terrorists ensues when terrorists take over a nuclear power plant. Not much happens except that both sides are edgy, and news cast reports the developing situations. Surprising true motive of the terrorist becomes clear, but situation is different from the intended motive. It's up to the terrorist and the federal agent to rectify the situation.

Good drama, with slow burn type plot that was popular in the early 2000's. I'm not a fan of slow burn, so this didn't become my favorite. If you're looking for strait action, look for other movies. If you're looking for a good situation drama, this one might be for you.
