This minor sci-fi thriller from the Gardner-Levy stable is typical of the breed:lots and lots of repetitious talk from a few stereotyped characters enmeshed in a predictable, well-used plot, strung together with a bit of stock footage, one or two days of location shooting in some uninteresting scrub-land, and a tiny slice of special effects work. And it's all filmed in a totally routine manner, using tedious close-up after close-up to enable a quick sale to TV.
Give all that, this entry is not too bad. In fact, after a slow start, it becomes moderately suspenseful. The director has contrived some atmosphere and tension, despite the constraints of his very moderate budget. The players, especially the attractive Miss Crowley, come across well (partly thanks to Jack MacKenzie's fine cinematography). And while the screenplay offers more than its fair share of standing-still dialogue, there's still just enough action to satisfy not-too-critical fans.
