But if you remember Einstein... he knew the theory of relativity to be true...
long before he could prove it. I mean, he felt the truth. And, uh, some of us
feel the same way... And, uh, some of us feel the same way... about cold fusion... because it's there. It's in nature... the raw, natural power just waiting to be harnessed. When we ignite that cold fusion fire... I mean, just imagine. There's more energy in one cubic mile of seawater... than in all the known oil reserves on earth. I mean, you could drive your car 55 million miles... on a gallon of heavy water. It would be the end of pollution... warmth for the whole world.

Do you know what cold fusion is?
-Of course. It's the theory... of nuclear fusion at room temperature... free energy forever.
Yes... As far as science goes, it ranks just above astrology. Those who claim to have achieved the experiment... have never been able to duplicate it.

When the electrochemists Pons and Fleischman... announced in 1989... that they had discovered cold fusion... a revolutionary process of generating energy... they were at first acclaimed as geniuses... and then condemned as charlatans.

"Allow me to introduce myself. My name is August Christopher. I was named for St. Augustan, who coined my favorite phrase, 'Give me chastity and give me constancy, but do not give it yet.'"

"My name is Bruno Hautenfaust. I was named for a saint, who was a very wealthy man. Got wines, the womens, the songs...the whole bit, and then inexplicably, took a vow of poverty and became a hermit. Went off to live in the forest, in the nude."

As a teen viewer eons ago, the early intro of boy Simon and the river escape past the 65 minute mark were most memorable. As an adult, other favorite sequences included Simon’s womanizing and the manhunt in Moscow. The science never made much sense and still not but played well in the plot. Also, a very good romance thriller with two beautiful lead actors near their prime: Val Kilmer was Brad Pitt before Brad Pitt and Elisabeth Shue was the star in Back to the Future/Karate Kid/Leaving Las Vegas/Cocktail (as Tom Cruise's girl friend) before the Saint. A good extension of the TV reruns “The Saint” Simon Templar, the super cool spy played by Roger Moore before he was tapped to replace Sean Connery as the 007 James Bond.

Val Kilmer wears some goofy disguises, but there's action and romance in Russia.
