One of Thomas Dekker's (Smith) co-stars is Araki regular James Duval, in Gregg Araki's tonally similar film Nowhere James Duval portrayed Dark Smith. Both films might even be set in the same universe. See more »

When people start talking about a directors previous films as a supporting material for his current one, it's not a good sign. This film is poorly plotted and paced. The actors put in committed performances but the script is laughable. Never as edgy as it seems to think it is. The actors lines fall like lead balloons from their lips.
I wasn't sure if Kaboom was intentionally aiming for so-bad-its-good fare, but it missed the mark on that score.
I've seen this film called 'Donnie Darko meets Rules of Engagement'; in reality if it was just a little worse, it could have been a Sci-fi Showgirls - but instead of being truly bad, it's merely mediocre.
Some great performances to be fair, but a bad film that isn't bad enough to be worth recommending.
