Goofs

According to Bo, the negative is fed to his thumb, and the positive to the rest of his fingers. When the electromagnet is engaged (particularly after he "magnifies the voltage") it would cause his thumb to attract to his fingers, in the fashion of the Italian hand gesture. Bo never forms this gesture in the movie. See more »

This movie went nowhere
7 August 2017 | by said-buet10See all my reviews

At the start it felt like I was in for a treat. I felt like something very interesting will happen in this story. But little did I know that was the zenith of this movie. Everything went down from that cliff.

On the hindsight the story is not so different form any other poorly written action movie. The directing was interesting enough to make it seem like this had something in it. If you have watched this movie and liked it then take a break and really think about the story. It is utterly ridiculous.

This is not a good movie and I would recommend skipping it.
