Not good, but could have been worse.
25 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

For what it is worth I can watch this movie, and at least not be bored. I saw this one on the sci-fi channel and it had its moments and it is a lot better than the stuff they play on that channel these days. You know the stuff, the stupid computer animated sea creature that attacks and someone like Dean Cain must stop it. This one is sort of a horror version of 2001, not that I am comparing the two, but both feature crazed computers. I think this one is based on a book also, but I have never read it so I can't really say if it follows along with the book for the most part or that it makes drastic changes. This movie has this group chartering a spaceship to find something or other, I can't remember what. The ship is run by this guy who seems to have been in space his whole life so he doesn't take to gravity real well. The computer is like his mother or something and it fears that this group is going to take the son away and so it starts a killing spree. I saw a preview of this and the preview made it look a lot scarier than what I saw. On the other hand it did provide a nice distraction for a while and a few interesting kills as well.
