This is clearly a low-budget film, but within that, it comes off pretty good. Let's take the actors. Justin Kelly, who plays Brody Thompson, does a good job, considering the parameters of the script and director. I do think his emotions are a little watered down. I would like it if he was a little more demonstrative. David Andrews, who plays Edwin, the bad guy, excels when showing emotion through facial expressions. There is a point in the movie, toward the end, when the character realizes, "Oh my goodness, what have I done?" That really comes across in the actor's face. The music is great. It had a sort of James Bond feel to it. I would give this movie a 5 out of 10 stars because it isn't the best film I've ever seen, but it's very watchable. I would show this to any age child because there's nothing too scary in it. There is a little bit of martial arts violence, but it's more funny than scary. Credit: Sam Connan, Age 12, KIDS FIRST!

This film does a great job of explaining how past grudges can prevent us from moving forward with our life and shows how science has the ability to advance humanity for the better. However, those advances can become deadly in the hands of the wrong person. I really enjoyed the imaginative inventions such as when the scientists create a packet that would purify potentially dangerous water into drinking water - a boon for impoverished communities. Also the idea to create a "nanobot" to heal people who are wounded. What a great idea. The film shows how science can help fix and change the world for the better with the right direction and motivated minds.
After 16 years, Claire and Matt Thompson reunite with a secret community of world-class geniuses doing cutting edge research. With the aid of their teenage son, they find themselves thrust into a race to stop a plan that would allow a potentially dangerous technology to fall into the wrong hands. Ultimately, they not only fight to stop a team of rogue geniuses, but also discover the truth that healthy families are honest with each other.
