Trivia

There were two different versions of the film made... Version 1. The aliens mostly speak in an alien language, with subtitles. There is one alien that speaks English, but it is a lifeless dialogue, with an equally dull voice. Version 2. Same version as above, in terms of video. But the alien subtitles and dialogue have been completely removed, along with their dull voices. It has been re-dubbed with a silly Monty Python styled English dialogue, and just as silly voice actors. Who are extremely funny, the alternate audio transforming the movie completely. See more »

A poor adaptation. Not recommended.
16 May 1999 | by (Newark, DE, USA) – See all my reviews

This film has almost everything it needs to be first class science fiction, except a decent screenwriter. The effects, makeup, photography, and direction are all perfectly acceptable for the story. However, the script is a disaster. This is a highly inept adaptation of Poul Anderson's classic sifi novel. Most of the basic premise, and introduction, are preserved. However, the rest is terrible. Anderson's competent crusader knights are replaced by idiots and buffoons. The subtle humor of the original is replaced by inane slapstick. The result is implausible, and embarrassing. If they had simply cut for time, without trying to replace or add, the film would have been vastly better.
