Nowhere fast
30 June 2004 | by (Philadelphia, PA) – See all my reviews

Studying in Berlin in 1984, I attended a packed first screening of this film, billed as "Der Deutsche Star Wars." I was astonished at how childishly executed the film was. It seemed to have a single special effect, space station scaffolding rumbling past camera(sound in space?), re-used 7 times. I counted. The plot was equally thin. CIA world domination, love story, bad marriage, predictable lines. pacing excruciatingly slow. The audience that day was equally unimpressed, so it wasn't just me.

Happily, the director went on to make real eye candy with decent budgets.
