What would you do if you could tell who was about to die? Would you try to intercede, to stop something horrible from happening? Would you tempt fate? Would you play God? Nathan Fillion stars as Abe Dale, a man faced with that terrifying choice. After his family is brutally murdered and surviving his own near death experience, Abe undergoes a transformation that allows him to "see" those among the living who are about to die. But when he tries to save people from their fate, he discovers there is an ultimate price to be paid for interfering with the natural order of life and death.
- White Noise 2: The Light review by ER
Very poor sequel to the lacklustre White Noise, that starred Michael Keaton. White Noise 2 - The Light seems to be a different story completely and bits about the TV static seem to be inserted in at the edges (zelig-like) - this may have been written as an unrelated stand-alone then shoehorned into shape. I only watched this as I like Nathan Fillion from Firefly. Well, I don't anymore because this film sucked. The acting is poor, the script perfunctory and the special-effects aren't special at all. The plot runs around in circles with only one good set-piece involving a grand piano. Sadly though, this is poor man's Final Destination - it wouldn't even qualify to be a poor sequel. Craig Fairbrass shows up in a rare Stateside role but he's sidelined early on and hamstrung by the bad dialogue 'Tria mera! If save, must kill...' zzzzz. It was cheap, uncheerful and ultimately, very lame.
