I must admit it's hard to take *any* movie seriously that has Dean Cain or Thomas Ian Griffith in it, seeing how much made-for-video junk they have been in previously - and both of them appear in this movie! Overall this movie is a disappointment - many important elements that would have explained things are not here (I suspect they got edited out along the way), there is a lack of excitement in the action and the lack of war-weariness this 99 year-old war would have placed on its people. Some of the effects and sets (such as the glass caverns) would embarrass even Roger Corman. The climatic battle is straight out of a video game!
Still, a few effects (like some matte paintings) aren't bad, and there are some interesting ideas here and there, intriguing ideas that, in a better screenplay, could have made for a compelling adventure. As it is now, this plays like a (rough) first draft, and it's easy to see why Dimension released this directly to video stateside (after spending two years on the shelf.0
