"Sci-fi original" mini-movie is bad by Hollywood standards yes but let's face it this is a television movie and it does not have the budget to be anything more than that. On a secret military base a group of scientists have made a discovery unequaled since the invention of the A-bomb; code-named Eruptor, it's a device that supercharges Dark Matter and uses it to change the molecular structure of its target, thereby eradicating it. But when the Eruptor malfunctions and a leading scientist on the project is blasted with Dark Matter, he receives incredible abilities that allow him to control the weather, as the same device now threatens the world!

The story is silly and very unbelievable yet I still found the movie to be very entertainment if your looking to past a few hours. Stephen Baldwin invents a weapon using "dark matter" (apparently a more photogenic, controllable version of anti-matter) and generatable thunderstorms. Things go wrong as we would expect and he absorbs some of the "dark matter", making himself a self-generating weapon. The acting in the film went from good to bad, the main leads were are very good considering the characters they were playing were not developed in anyway. The effects again were good to bad judging by a made for Television film but the pace and action was good enough to avoid this being a real bust. If your a suck for sci-fi like me and are looking for something to past the time rent this title I am sure you will at least be as entertained as I was but for me the bonus was I am a fan of the Baldwin's so that was a bonus as well. Released by Lions Gate Home Entertainment. ** 1/2 Out Of *****
