(Not to be confused with the 1979 sci-fi film of the same title starring Maximilian Schell, Anthony Perkins and Robert Forster. But probably you won't.)

Because of the messy experiences of quantum or something, by the scientists in St. Louis, a huge black hole opens up in the middle of the facility, and is about to swallow the city itself. If you find the premise unconvincing, there's more to come, for Kristy Swanson, who did a good job elsewhere but is miscast here, appears as Dr. Shannon Muir who is responsible for the terrible job. Or maybe not. I am not sure for the film does not explain much about the experiments, but that did not particularly bother me because what really matters in this kind of film is thrill and suspense, or any entertainment value, something "The Black Hole" desperately needs.

Anyway, another scientist played by Judd Nelson is called in, who was kicked out of the research team for the reasons that are not important. What is important is how to contain this disaster within the walls, and at least Swanson and Nelson know as much as that, but sadly not the filmmakers, who have no story to tell after the initial 20 minutes except the `general' who insists on using nuclear bombs, and some not-so-exciting episodes about a strange thing, or "electric entity,' that might be related to the hole.

What is really disappointing about the film is the lack of pace and logics. I can ignore plot holes if the story goes forward and tells something new every ten minute. It doesn't happen in `The Black Hole," where things happen slowly and in a bland way, and the two main characters have little to do. The characters scarcely seem to feel danger before this global disaster, so how can we?

The two best things I can say about this movie are 1) it is very short, and 2) I rented it so can return it asap. I don't watch movies like this for the plot (good thing!) or the cast, but for the special effects. Which in this case means a whole lot of camera shaking. It makes no sense, there are way too many holes in it, and what in the world is up with Judd Nelson's hair?

The Black Hole is now in the Top Ten worst movies I have ever seen. It stunk in every way.

The acting was horrendous. The plot laughable. The pacing was a joke as well. The story jumped right into the action without any establishment of the characters at all.

Let's not even get started on the debate that Judd Nelson could possibly be the worst actor in the history of film. I know there have been worse performances, but on the average Judd has been consistently horrible for 20+ years.

This stinker was highly rated when it was on TV's the sci-fi channel. Poor people must have run like mad after 30 minutes. Do the same. Avoid this stinker at all costs.

Total Score (out of 100) = 0

0 (out of 50). Enjoyment. A rating based on my overall enjoyment of the film.

0 (out of 10). Acting. How good was the acting?

0 (out of 10). Immersion. Did the movie suck me into the story?

0 (out of 10). Intangibles. Special effects. Movie pace. Is the movie forgettable, or something you will talk about and remember for weeks? Years?

0 (out of 10). Must see. Is this movie worth seeing/renting?

0 (out of 10). Must buy. Is this movie a must buy/purchase?

"The Black Hole" is about the worst action movie you can possibly

imagine. Scientific experiment in high energy physics goes wrong

and black hole is created inside the particle accelerator. Soon

it becomes obvious there is intergalactic monster (yes - you read

it correctly) involved - it somehow uses black holes to travel

across the Universe. At this point Department of Homeland Security

and US military jump in and their contingency plan is to go

"nucular on that thing". Over wild objections of cartoonish looking

scientists (wild hair nerds with scared look and glasses) who argue

that bomb will "break one big black hole into many small ones".

The rest is just loads of bad dialouge, horrible acting and cheesy

computer generated effects. This movie should come with a warning

label "Viewership restricted to 10 yo and und under".

On a positive side - it is heartwarming to know that there are

some dedicated mad scientists out there who will risk their lives

to prevent the President and Department of Homeland Security from

nuking us all when fighting intergalactic monsters.

OK - you have been WARNED.

If you're really a sci-fic fan, then this is really a pretty good "B" movie. Of course it's not an Alien or Star Trek. I liked it, and I'm not a rainy day sci-fic fan, either.

Hard to believe Hollywood wasted money to make this silly movie. It's not even sure what it wants to be , a disaster movie , an Alien movie ,or Mad Scientist movie. As a result it becomes none of the above and settles for being a mess. Waste of time.
