Can someone explain Impostor to me? Spoilers

I just watched Impostor and didn't get the ending. So he was the bomb after all--why was he suddenly able to "blow up" when he couldn't, or didn't at the beginning of the movie? Was the ending clearer in the story? I know I read it a few years ago, but don't really remember it.

thanks,

tasha

In the story, he was programmed to explode after he says a trigger (think Bender from Futurama). At the end, it turns out the trigger is when he realizes that he is the bomb after all.

So what is the point?

he was supposed to kill some important people... wouldn't he have done more dammage by exploding at the "trooper" HQ?

They had that 7 ton bomb in there and everything.

I still don't understand.


I watched this last night so I thought I would bump this
