Quotes

[first lines]
Salera Elizabeth Hawke: This is the Earth, the year 2638. Six world wars, three of them in the last 200 years. One third of the population, six billion people, dead. Radiation storms, disease, famine, claim another 1 billion lives annually. Two factions are still at war for control of what remains. Genetically enhanced humans called Alphas, mutants and non-altered humans called Rebels. This time it was called the Cleansing War.

Great human interest/morality play
14 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dark Planet is a post apocalyptic morality play, centered around the thesis, "robots don't make good humans". If you enjoyed Firefly and Serenity as much as I did, there is a good chance you will enjoy Dark Planet. I never heard of a theater release. I discovered it on the shelf of a video rental store. I watch it as often as I watch my other favorites: Blade Runner, Highlander, Serenity, Predator, Excalibur, Soldier and Chronicles of Riddick.

If you are a fan of these films, it is hard for me to imagine you not liking Dark Planet.

I think Dark Planet is a really great film. In fact, I wonder if it could be successfully presented on stage. The small cast makes it well suited to such a venue. I read some of these reviews and I wonder what film they were watching.
