Put it this way. It's probably better than going to bed early with a box of crackers. It reinforces my view that nobody ever has made a good sci-fi flick. Having said that, it whiled away a dreadfully wet and miserable April evening. The effects are passable, the acting is competent if undistinguished, the science is questionable, the characters are stereotypes and the plot is predictable. And for some inscrutable reason, it was made in St. Louis. I suppose if one must destroy a city, St. Louis is as good a choice as any! Then there is that ridiculous business where the troops confront the zapping electricity with automatic weapons at the ready. Maybe they were also on the look out for copper wire thieves. Or terrorists. In any case, the DVD (and do you really expect great movies from the Wal Mart bargain bin?) will make a nice coaster for my coffee cup.

The Synopsis for The Black Hole (2006) 720p
In St. Louis, the scientists Dr. William Hauser, Shannon Muir and Kent accidentally create a black hole during an experiment. While investigating the phenomenon, Dr. Hauser and Kent die and the army comes to their laboratory under the command of General Ryker. Shannon tries to call the prominent Dr. Eric Bryce, but the scientist does not answer the phone since he misses his daughter Kayley after the divorce to his ex-wife Elizabeth. When he is contacted, he comes to the laboratory and soon he finds that the experiment has also unleashed a creature that feeds off energy. The Powers That Be wants a nuclear attack against the creature, but Eric warns that the action will increase the black hole. He also believes that the creature may be destroyed and the black hole closed if they are attracted to each other. However, only General Ryker supports his theory while General Tate wants to bomb the location.

Oh well...Reviewed byrps-2Vote: 4/10
1. Poor acting - at the very least poor depiction of what should have been strong emotions such as living without children, scared, etc. Lead character acts as if he just woke up
Disconnected or no flow at all - such as characters making statements about research they did that they never had time to do (because they spent all time driving or running around)
The "black hole" would not behave at all the way it did in the movie. Suffice to say that there is no "Science" in this fiction.
The whole army behaves like it is in a war with another ... human army. Hiding behind walls, carrying guns, etc.
The only reason I gave it a 2 and not 1 is that it could, nevertheless, be amusing to watch how people have no clue what they are talking about.
This movie is one of the worst of the "shovelware" the Sci-Fi channel shows. The acting is awful, the plot is broken, the characters are contrived, and the end result screams "Mystery Science Theater." This is a true rotten tomato if one ever existed.
On the other hand, if you're a St. Louisan, you're bound to get some entertainment out of this movie, if for no other reason than to see the local landmarks. Of course, you'll be shocked to discover that the St. Louis Science Center is, in fact, a quantum laboratory and that Busch Stadium was apparently not demolished in the way the local news claimed!
The local appeal aside, this is an utterly awful movie that is only watchable if your friends like to make snide remarks during the pitiable conversations. If you like movies like "Reptillian" or "10.5: Apocalypse," watch this film. For the millions of others of you out there, run away. Far away.
