Storyline

In the near future, instead of being sent to prison criminals are aged for the number of years the system feels is adequate to the crime they committed. Vincent Dawson is a 15 year old, whose late father was a musician who didn't exactly make it and died tragically. Vinnie hopes to be a musician too but his step-father is not very supportive, and when they have a violent argument, his step-father is killed and he is the prime suspect and evidence is found against him. He is sentenced to be aged 30 years. Now, as a 15 year old trapped in a 45 year old body, he sets to prove his innocence and hopefully the procedure could be reversed. Written by Anonymous

Possibly amusing if you've been geriatrified for 80 years...
28 March 2002 | by lizimalSee all my reviews

I suppose if you've never seen an episode of any science fiction series, read any books from the genre or done anything within the genre, this might seem original. However, if you've had any exposure to the genre at all, the only entertainment to be found here, besides Robert Hays and the rest of the cast's hilariously wooden acting, is in the utter stupidity of the dialogue, special effects, (and boy are they 'special') and 'plot'. If you're really bored and this is on, and your only other choice is Garden Club or Ready, Set, Cook!, watch this. But otherwise, steer a clear path unless you're well and truly inebriated.
