Storyline

TV series pilot (series never launched). After a freak mishap, an astronaut finds himself on an almost precise copy of Earth (right down to the Plymouth cars). However, this planet has three moons, and is run by an Orwellian government called The Perfect Order, who seek out and crush all dissidents either by outright assassination or by having them treated at "Ward E." Hunted and alone, the story traces the astronaut's efforts to evade capture and return home. Written by Leo L. Schwab <ewhac@best.com>

Hell Pilot
31 March 2009 | by (New York, NY USA) – See all my reviews

I HATE this movie.

It is the WORST of everything: acting, writing, made-for-TV-movies, sci-fi, and the 70's.

The actors are completely WRONG and they all appear to need more fiber in their diet. The CARS in this movie make me want to shoot myself in the mouth- gas-guzzling dinosaurs that just happen to look like cars here on Earth. (Good thing Terra's auto industry is precisely the same as ours.)

And a word here on the "planet": there was not a single visual to differentiate Terra from Earth. Nothing. If it wasn't for Joel & the bots I would have made a list of everyone involved with this disaster and hunted them for sport.

No budget, no energy, no effort.

No wonder.

GRADE: F
