Goofs

Except for the two B-29s which actually dropped atomic bombs, no aircraft in World War II every carried a fully assembled atomic bomb, or even all of the unassembled components for such a bomb. Due to their weight and size, the casings and heavy components of bombs were sent by ship. Many of the internal components were flow to their destination. A B-29 required special modifications to be able to carry an assembled atomic bomb. See more »

Another Sci Fi Channel "Classic"
20 April 2008 | by bobwildhorrorSee all my reviews

Another in the seemingly endless series of Sci Fi Channel CGI monster movies. If you watch the channel at all, you know the type. A bunch of clichéd characters are stranded in a remote location and menaced by computer generated creatures.

I'll probably hate myself in the morning for saying this, but the effects here were above typical Sci Fi Channel fodder. Which isn't to say that they were convincing. They just didn't look like rejects from a Nintendo game system.

The plot tries to have some social relevance, masquerading as a tale of militarism vs. humanitarianism. That said, the mechanics were often forced. And some of the acting was painful to watch. In all honesty, I may be giving this film a higher score than it deserves, as I didn't see the first half (which means the entire setup and reasoning behind the monster infestation).

But even if I am right, and this wasn't as bad as a many of the channel's previous crimes against humanity, I'm still forced to ask who it is that greenlights such films? What happened to the notion that great Sci Fi meant great ideas instead of ineffective monsters?
