The worst "action packed" save the children movie ever.
I viewed this movie late at night on a "premium" cable channel. The movie was horrible, not only was every scene poorly acted it was incredibly predictable. When I say poorly acted I mean to say the worst. The teen actors were unbelievable and delivered their lines horribly and could not have been anymore sterotypical in their manurisms and actions. The bad guys were unbelievable, what squabbling losers would produce crack or some other hard drug in North America far away from the raw supplies. Why would they have boxes full of guns, loaded no less, lying around for no use. If they have this hyper explosive crack lab setup one would think that security would be a little tighter. My suggestion: If you want to keep the Tipper Gore "save our youth" theme lose the action and melodramatics. If you want to make a late night action movie lose the crusade theme and add more of the following: sex, drugs, and action scenes. It'll be bad but at least not horrible. In a word it was chessy. It sent cold chills up my back.
