Emily Bergl stars as Rachel Lang, the new telekinetic teen who can move things with her mind in accordance to her emotions. Rachel is an outcast, with only one friend. I do like the way they show the class system of high schools (football players being on top) but if you want to see a movie that displays that in a better way, go rent Welcome to Dollhouse. Anyhoo, Rachel's friend jumps off a building after being used by a football player (Home Improvement's Zachary Ty Brian). Rachel is crushed, alone in the world until she is sought after by another football player (this time with good intentions) played by Party of Five's Jeremy London. Soon Rachel is part of the in-crowd, but knowing the original, we know she's going to be setup so she can display her, uh, Rage.
This isn't a good movie. It never takes off until the end. A movie needs to gel together and keep the audience interested. Was this a teen isolation movie? Or was it a cheesy sci-fi? I'm stumped. I will say that the last scene is just damn cool. Things flying around, people getting killed by CD's, girl's glasses shattering, things on fire. That scene was very fun to look at, I wish the movie was.
