Don't be fooled by the first few minutes
11 September 2004 | by (Highlands of Scotland) – See all my reviews

For the first few minutes this looks like it might be an undiscovered OK SF movie. A routine trip by exploration ship is interrupted when they intercept a particle beam transmission. Should they divert to intercept this beam? It's been out there for a long time traveling through the void. One of the characters points out that "They used to execute criminals by beaming them to nowhere." Hey! a nice neat little SF idea I don't think I've ever heard before - the crew decide to intercept the beam. As they do so discover it's an unknown file type! Another novel, almost funny idea - 10 minutes into the movie and we've had two passable good ideas! (most bad SF movies mostly scrape by on one - or less) unfortunately that's it. After that ran out of ideas and couldn't think of anything to do with the ones they had. The rest of the movie is deathly dull, totally unfunny and soooooo boring.

The "French" doctor's accent is so thick you loose half her lines (I guess they made her French so they could show her smoking during an operation - that's the level of the humour). The villains are mind numbingly stupid - letting the crew gather unsupervised to endlessly discuss ways of escaping. The acting is abysmal (though John Fleck as the android Lizardo and John Durbin as Manny the slimy sidekick baddie look like they were trying to make an effort - an uphill struggle given the leaden direction and plodding editing).

The music is really crap too.
