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.

eighties CGI
20 March 2011 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

From the first shot you can easily see were this one is going, to a dark hole were nobody will find this flick. The first shot you will see is really bad CGI. And there is a lot of it in this flick. Explosions look funny and really bad added. It reminded me of those old science-fiction series from the eighties (Space 1999, battlestar Galactica,...)It's just an action film made in space. Why it is in space is for me unknown. You could easily made it in the mafia world or in a OO7 style. The only action is just shooting, a bit of fighting and the so-called explosions. It's made in 1997 but it looks like 1981. Avoid if you aren't in old school science-fiction otherwise this is one to add in your collection for all bad reasons.
