We have discovered the Higgs-Boson, or the
God Particle as they call it, so it's time to do something
with it, like put it in a fancy tunnel and make it smash into
itself. Collide so to speak. For that we will need
a Supercollider, like the one this movie 'Supercollider', and
while you might think particles running into themselves seems
dull, you haven't seen anything yet.
Heading this program is super smart physicist Dr. Victor
Susskind, who is about to put this project online and create
all kinds of super clean, super free energy. Profit
margin for super clean, super free energy? Zero.
We should mention some dude tried to call him to warn the good
doctor that something bad was about to happen if he goes
through with it, but alas he didn't get the call in time and
this gentlemen exists no more. Funding this project is a
really suspect looking billionaire named Leo Tarskey (Enzo
Cilenti), who just looks like he is up to no good.
It's time to hit start on this mother, but Victor notices a
discrepancy and is about to pull the plug… too late.
Something goes wrong and everything goes to smithereens
sending shockwaves throughout the universe and blowing up the
planet. Or something like that.
Not so fast! After this unfortunate event, Victor wakes
up in a rundown motel and is shaken out his slumber by his
friend Chuck (Brendan Beiser) and upon exiting this dive,
Victor notices things are really different. For
starters, the world is one gloomy looking joint and decay is
everywhere, also Vincent is no longer married to his pretty
wife Natalie (Amy Bailey) who is now just the town tramp, and
his cute daughter Jessica (Mia Nordstrom) died years
ago. Plus, he's no longer even a physicist but just a
lowly IT guy. Now I know being an IT guy isn't the
highest paying gig on the planet, but it pays well enough that
Victor should've been living in a better dump than the one he
is currently in.
Everything has changed. But the problem
is that Victor seems to be the only one that knows that the
way things are, isn't the way that things are supposed to
be. Well, actually, everybody kind of knows, but they
just call it the confusion disease or something. That
everybody on the planet has.
The worst part is the natural disasters that keep occurring,
which seem primed to rip the planet Earth to shreds.
Victor knows he can somehow fix this, because somehow his
IPhone, which will never be invented, has survived this
disaster. Roll with it.
The thing is that there is at least one more person who is
aware of the way things used to be, and that would be that guy
we didn't trust in the first place, Leo Tarskey. But why
would Leo basically sanction the destruction of the entire
Earth? Uh… for a big payday silly? Look, I like a
good heist as much as the next guy, but Leo's plan for the
money grab was, at best, ill-conceived. Our hope is that
Victor can set things right. I'm not sure the
screenwriters figured out a way to make him do this, other
than just to have it be so. Roll with it. You have
Since I largely hang out in what one would call the 'bad
neighborhood' of movies, the ghetto so to speak, I'm very
familiar with the works of the director of this film
'Supercollider', that being my main man Jeffrey Scott
Lando. Unfortunately, most of Jeffrey Scott's films, at
least the ones I've seen, and I've seen most, haven't been
very good. Still, that doesn't mean I don't admire what
he does. That being said, 'Supercollider' also isn't
very good. 'Supercollider' takes a very good concept,
one of that mysterious God Particle causing a ruckus, and
turns it into one of the more boring, slow moving, inert
sci-fi action thrillers in recent memory. I'm not even
sure how that happened here considering the movie does have
fight scenes and shoot outs and spontaneous tornado action and
apocalyptical world destruction along with and all kinds of
action themes, but nothing seemed to move with any kind of
urgency in this movie.
It didn't help that the audience wasn't given much to chew on
as far as the fake science was concerned. Meaning that
whether it's authentic or not, we do need to be fed a solid
line of well-presented B.S. on how this could actually happen,
and we didn't get that. Then our heavy had one of the
more inane plans ever to steal money… considering he's already
a billionaire… which is why in these types of films I always
prefer the religious lunatic angle because it's really hard to
poke holes in the beliefs of a religious lunatic.
But the performances weren't terrible, FCU favorite Atanis
Srebrev shows up in a record breaking 48th movie on this site,
the lady playing the psychiatrist was pretty hot and Enzo
Cilenti was pretty good playing the sleazy billionaire.
The only problem for poor Enzo is that his wife Sienna
Guillory also made a God Particle movie in 'The Big Bang'
which was way better than this, which means she gets God
Particle movie bragging rights at dinner every single
day. Sorry Enzo.
Slow AND nonsensical… that's not a combination for success on
almost any ones meter.
