I would very much like to see the potential reached for this film maker.
The good: Better than Scfy made movies. Special effects were good for a low budget film- better than most made for TV shows.
I hope the students who made this film @ UofNM got high praise. The movie was one of the best low budget films I've ever seen.
And unlike TV or most films, I appreciated the producers not feeling the need to follow main stream ideas that a movie must have sex scenes and filled with bad language. This movie kids will like and parents won't mind them watching it. That alone is a great achievement in my book.
Nothing truly bad with this movie- just some flaws.
Acting was good for a low budget film. It's just that it mostly lacked true emotions. How would you react in your HS years or early twenties if you found out suddenly you had a special power is just one point to consider.
The General orders double security on the facility which is never seen when it interfered with the plot. Army guys with goatee's, earrings and mouthing off to superior officers did not help. And having a secure gov't facility housing dangerous 'criminals' easily breached by simply throwing an electrical charge @ the control panel is weak- especially since the gov't already knew this power existed. But probably the worst was THE most dangerous criminal in the world locked behind a single password that a HS girl figured out on her first try........
Overall: Story good overall. Acting OK. Special effects great. This movie is not for everyone, but is probably one of the best low budget Sci Fi movies you'll ever see.
The movie shifts to 8 years later. Two of the Freeman kids visit super dad in prison and he imparts some of his power to them who in turn touch their siblings who also get power, turning them into a mini "Fantastic Four" to the dismay of their doting mother. It is during their visit he recaps the plot, leaving a lot of stuff out so we feign interest. The acting was extremely bad. The plot reminded me of something I saw in an X-Men movie, with Uncle Sam hunting down the mutants. Bianca Freeman (Erin Kupay), who appears she might of had a year of drama studies, is the closet thing to an actor in this film. The title "Bomb Squad" is from a virtual game one of the pimply faced boys play. He wanted to call his group the "Bomb Squad" with cool, if not meaningless nicknames, but no one else wanted yo go along. So they weren't really called the Bomb Squad except to one kid...but hey what else are you going to call it? "Stolen X-Men Script" Who's going to watch that?
The bad dialog, acting, and filler material dragged down the film. These are things that a writer-director has control over and don't cost a dime more. Your ten year old might like it. This film was done by students, most likely Kindergarten.
No f-bombs, sex, or nudity.

If i could give this movie 0 stars i would. Poor acting, directing and special effects.
not worth your time!
Even though it is low budget, they maximized the effects/affects of what they were trying to achieve. The storyline is great and cohesive.Published 2 months ago by Phillip
