3 May 2009 | by FletchGivesSee all my reviews

Like every sci fi channel movie, Fireball has its highs and lows. Lows in sci-fi channel movies are always the special effects and the budget.

That being said, I enjoyed this more than usual "monster" schlock you find on Sci Fi.

I enjoyed the science of this movie as well as Lexa Doig's character as the walking textbook. As a science teacher I enjoyed the science (and the pseudo-science) of explaining a human torch. Is it possible? No. But I bought it.

I also like that the the guy who played the Agent was a pretty boy instead of the usual aging-alcoholic-just divorced-john McLean-type.

All in all it's worth your time if you like Sci Fi Original Movies and of those movies is one of the ones I have enjoyed more.
