The Surge (2002)

2002 | R | Thriller, Sci-Fi

User Score: 57/100


Four outcast teenagers acquire mystical powers that allow them to become gods on campus, with deadly consequences.

unfortuneately, that’s the best thing about this movie. The special effects are lame. The acting is subpar, some of which can be blamed on the director (very poor camera angles). How people gave it a 5-star is beyond me. Must be friends and relatives of the cast. For a low-budget film, I might consider it a 2-star. But, I just had, had to bring down that 3 1/2 overall rating. Movies rated that highly should offer much, much more regardless of budget constraints. I’m spending good money and want to be assured that when a film gets a decent review that it offers good entertainment in return. This one did not. Sometimes it’s best to listen to those 1 & 2 star reviewers. That was the case here.
