Not bad, 20 July 2009
Author: tawlite from United Kingdom

The first part of the movie was pretty dire, and the acting was really awful,but it got better after most of the crew apart from 2 were killed.

Some reviewers have commented that the movie is another cheap Alien rip off but it isn't really. It does change direction from gooey killings to ET type Alien but I thought that was a nice direction to go with the movie. Some commentators have knocked the effects but I didn't really notice them; most Sci Fi space films have pan views of the ships in space and this was no different. The interior of the ship was adequate and was OK for a mid 80s sci film. I didn't understand why there was no walking decks as most of the ships access seemed to be through claustrophobic tunnels.

You'll either hate it or be satisfied with it. It isn't a great movie by any stretch of the imagination but it is more than watchable. When I first put it on I fell asleep bored out of my head, but I gave it another go and I am glad I did.
