Quotes

George Herbert: Victor, we have rabies vaccines right here.
Pastor Victor: You're gonna give these beasts rabies?
George Herbert: No, I'm gonna inject toxins that can spread a deadly disease through their system.
Pastor Victor: We're gonna give them a virus?
George Herbert: Yes. Nothing's worked. The missiles, the bombs, guns, nothing. But this is life fighting life. Victor, this has a chance.
Pastor Victor: Right. How about I go out there and call them in now?
George Herbert: I didn't say it was a perfect plan. Do you have a better idea?

for no money it's not bad
14 December 2005 | by playerswwSee all my reviews

I am not a big fan of the Spielberg/Cruise version of this film. And so I must throw in with the more humble Latt/Howel version. C Thomas Howel had more heart and more sympathy that Cruise in the lead role (at least in my opinion). Now this is hard to imagine until you strip away everything thing in the Spielberg version that cost more than a thousand dollars. There would be nothing left, no special effects, no sets, no Cruise. Because I doubt that anything cost more than a cool grand in the David Michael Latt version. So, comparing apples to turnips I guess I have to go with the turnips. At least it gives independent movies a shot at the epic science fiction disaster market.
