Sorcher - It's hard to know what to take least seriously here, the fact that Rutger Hauer is US President or that the only measure that can to taken to prevent global catastrophe is the detonation of a thermo-nuclear device underneath Los Angeles. It may seem a little extreme, but what else can you do when bomb tests have triggered an ecological crisis, with volcanoes erupting, tectonic plates separating and citizens behaving like contestants on Runaround? Luckily help is at hand in the form of maverick colonel Mark Dacascos, although James Searle's direction does a pretty good job of dousing the flames. ** [100 words]
