    What a movie to return on. Sorry for the extended absence. Val Kilmer threatens to kill hostages locked in a steam room unless a newspaper prints his theory on global warming. Armand Assante is the main detective, who may be the worst detective in the history of detectives. Not to go unmatched, Val Kilmer plays the worst evil genius I've ever seen. As best I can tell, this was made as an excuse to show partial nudity and Kilmer making crazy faces at the end. I could care less about any of the hostages. There is a twist of sorts at the end that makes no sense. Absolutely terrible.

    Along the same sort of lines as 'Saw' with its 'people trapped inside a room' for the entire film, it does have some eerie and tense performances which do make you feel trapped and nervous whilst watching the film but the plot is so disjointed and senseless that it ruins a possible winner. The cast is a reasonable ensemble with Kilmer, Assante, Eric Roberts and Pat Muldoon, with the idea of trapping people in a sauna to fry slowly to death is quite good, like I said it worked for 'Saw', but the director clearly strings the film out to fill time. Some sequences are quite good and make you feel the heat but others are overdrawn and tend to jump from normality to not making sense very quickly. The ending really frustrates as you don't really know what has happened, was it in real time? the past? did it ever happen? was it just a dream or weird fantasy by Kilmer's character?? you could say that making you think is a good ending but this just annoys you because you wanna know damn it!

    well intentioned but it doesent come off that well, concerning a shifty val kilmer and taking credit for keeping 6 people locked in sauna to show the effects that global warming will bring, its all muddled in places, and it could have been a lot diferent and better executed
