| Good Science, Trite Story, Lame Acting
"Lightning: Bolts of Destruction" has enough good science to hook me for it's two hours (including commercials). Unfortunately, that's just about all it has going for it. While Ellen Dubin makes the most of her small, tritely written role, the only other memorable acting comes from the unnamed named actress that plays Joanna Pacula's assistant. She's pretty hot to boot, a sensuous combination of beauty, intelligence and charisma. Too bad Pacula's such a cold fish in this one. One longs for a little over-the-top acting to fill out the character, often described as crazed, crusading, brittle and a control freak; "Janine Turner: call your office". The story boasts too many coincidences. Pacula's husband "just so happens" to be working at an experimental power station. Pacula's son "just so happens" to be a high energy physics genius working on the very experiment which could save the day. Worse, the director fails to capitalize in the slightest on the suspense. The movie plays out by the numbers.

Still, there's enough here to give "Lightning:..." a weak ^6".
