       In St. Louis, the scientists Dr. William Hauser, Shannon Muir and Kent accidentally create a black hole during an experiment. While investigating the phenomenon, Dr. Hauser and Kent die and the army comes to their laboratory under the command of General Ryker. Shannon tries to call the prominent Dr. Eric Bryce, but the scientist does not answer the phone since he misses his daughter Kayley after the divorce to his ex-wife Elizabeth. When he is contacted, he comes to the laboratory and soon he finds that the experiment has also unleashed a creature that feeds off energy. The Powers That Be wants a nuclear attack against the creature, but Eric warns that the action will increase the black hole. He also believes that the creature may be destroyed and the black hole closed if they are attracted to each other. However, only General Ryker supports his theory while General Tate wants to bomb the location.

I watched this movie for the first time when I was fourteen, and my quality filter was not quite developed yet. As a fourteen year old, I thought that this was the most boring movie ever. I have just watched it for the second time six years later, and this time I was still able to enjoy it a little more. The acting was only a little better than Arnold from Troll 2. The CGI special effects were worse than the original Jurassic Park (which was completely passable for the time, it was released ten years earlier). The science regarding the black hole was so absurd that Wile E. Coyote would laugh at it. The characters don't even try to be interesting. The entire movie was just boring. I liked it better the second time because I could laugh at the problems, but it was still a very flawed movie, and not very memorable.

How could they make it better? I see two ways of fixing the issues with this movie. The first way would be to up the budget, get better special effects, actors, editors, and writers. The writers need to make the characters interesting. They also can't refer to it as a black hole. If a black hole spawned on earth our entire planet and solar system wouldn't last three seconds, let alone ninety minutes.

My other idea to fix this mess would be to make it campy. Have the scientists use stupid alternatives that somehow work. fill the movie with one liners. make the special effects over the top and even more ridiculous. In other words, make me laugh. This movie is so serious and is uninteresting. It's as if the writers had the time to write a script, but not the time to go over it again. If you thought Michael Bay was good, but he needed less skimpily dressed women, and a lower budget than this movie is for you.
