Trivia

The TV Movie aired on the Sci-fi Channel the same year as the release of the science fiction film No Escape (1994). Both films have a similar plot. No Escape (1994) starred Ray Liotta as a imprisoned former soldier whom is dumped on a prison island and left there to survive or die and he agrees to help a fortified village inhabited by resourceful prisoners to defend the village from a gang of barbarian warriors that live in the jungle on the prison island. This film is about prisoners whom are dumped on a desert planet and find themselves fighting for survival against nomadic desert warriors on that planet. See more »

Spew Eden, more like!!! Do you see?
5 May 2000 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

It took me three sittings to get through this film. Three. It's that exciting.

Tobin Bell's the only one who gets something resembling an interesting character to work with here, while Lisa Bonet does the best she can with the uninspiring lurve interest role. The sub-Snake Plissken bad guy, though, is about as menacing as a courgette, while Stephen Baldwin - not the most charismatic man in the world to begin with - has never been more irritating in his life. Someone kick his face in, for God's sake.

And you'd think that a film with absolutely no aspirations beyond nicking various cliches from Mad Max 2, Steel Dawn etc. etc. would at least have a worthwhile idea of what to do with them at the end of the day, but sadly it can't even manage that. Not only is New Eden staggeringly boring, it's also full of conflicting messages: hey kids, live in peace! Sacrifice yourself for others! And if you have to fight, fight with honour! (Except when you've got a shotgun and the bad guys are unarmed, in which case feel free to blow big holes in them.)

New Eden = Big Cack. Don't waste your time.
