All the reviewers that claim this is great sci-fi must have phenomenally LOW expectations. I agree, the story has some potential but really...? 10/10?!
The acting is thin and as cheesy as it gets. The characters are cliché and hokey. While the music tries to be edgy it ends up more like something 'hip' Grand-ma picked out for your 13th birthday. Dull and obvious peppered with gratuitous violence, rape sequences and twists so contrived it's laughable. The whole thing plays like a 'made for TV' low budget time killer. Reminded me of a bad 90's Die Hard/Lethal Weapon knock off.
I can see why this doesn't even show up on the cable TV Saturday movie rotation. If you're in the mood for good, smaller budget sci-fi check out Serenity. If it's decent drama/crime, any episode of Law and Order will suffice.
