LOL to this quote from the Movie
The world's full of strange stuff. It all started with those blue M&M's.

With the exception of an oddly entertaining reference to M&Ms, this movie is a complete waste of time. The acting is wooden and really not even good enough to be called TV-movie quality, and the production is just... nonexistent. Don't waste your time.

Zachary Shefford (Grayson McCouch - honestly, that's his name) doesn't like to use his telekinetik powers but relents in order to foil a hold-up at his local convenience store. The store's security camera, which shows him throwing the gunman across the store without touching him, is passed to government agent Raymond Addison (Lou Gossett Jnr).

Addison hires Shefford to infiltrate a gang of telekinetiks who are intent on murder and mayhem. Once Shefford gets in he discovers from group leader Adrian Grieger (Michael Massee) that Addison is actually quite underhand and is trying to eliminate the group to cover up a top-secret government project (Momentum) from the 70s.

Meanwhile two FBI agents, Jordan Ripps (the lovely Teri Hatcher) and Frank McIntyre (the entertaining Carmen Argenziano) are investigating a heist on a security van which leads them to Grieger and his group. From there it's a case of, well, not much...

I like these mind-based movies - "Scanners", "The First Power", "Fear" - but usually they are better when they have a plot to speak of. "Momentum" is so poorly plotted and scripted that it's hard to really accept any of the characters as credible. The lovely Alexondra Lee appears in about three scenes for what seems to be no reason at all. McCouch's character flip-flops around the place, seemingly forever packing up his office at the university he teaches at. Gossett Jnr sleepwalks through the minor role he has looking utterly bored and even too lazy to remove his hat.

There's no real action, a feeble narrative and a hint at a future sequel which we could really all do without.
