Judd Nelson and Kristy Swanson in The Black Hole (2006)

Electric Boogeyman

Scientists in St. Louis experimenting with a heavy metal collider at a Quantum research lab discover that their experiment has some how unleashed an electric monster is unleashed attacking all in its way. On top of that a black hole starts to form sucking in anything and everything. Whilst the military want to use nuclear weapons Dr. Shannon Muir (Kristy Swanson) and Eric (Judd Nelson) not only look for another solution but no a nuclear weapon is going to be pointless a thing made from electricity.

They call is science fiction for a reason but sometimes the fiction is such pointless nonsense that it is hard to make excuses for. That is the situation I find myself in when it comes to the 2006 made for TV movie "The Black Hole" as it feels like the brains behind the movie just came up with using a back hole created by scientists and an electricity monster. That is it and then they just threw some action nonsense together as such we have are heroic scientists trying to come up with a solution in a race against time. It is incredibly weak and unsurprisingly bad, but bad to the point that it isn't even enjoyable.

As for the acting well it is fortunately forgettable with Kristy Swanson and Judd Nelson both trying to bring energy and a sense of panic to their characters whilst most of the actors struggle with making even the most basic of thing look real, can anyone in these movies die stagger in a believable way.

What this all boils down to is that "The Black Hole" is exactly the sort of made for TV, sci-fi movie which gives the sub genre a bad name. Not only that, but it even fails to be entertaining for being bad.
