The Manhattan Project

It may be too cheesy and unbelievable for many viewers, but "The Manhattan Project" is fairly good nonetheless. Smart teen, Christopher Collet, discovers the laboratory his mother's boyfriend works at secretly makes atomic bombs, so he sneaks in the lab, steals some plutonium, and makes his own to bring this out in the open. However, when the Feds find out, he's in for a lot of trouble! Contains well-constructed suspense toward the end, but it's still too unbelievable!
