The worst movie in this galaxy...
14 December 2000 | by (Wuppertal, Germany) – See all my reviews

L5 (First City in Space) was announced to be a thrilling sci-fi movie, situated in the first man-made City in Space in the orbit of the moon. But there is some trouble with the water supply, so an audacious hero has to save the world in a difficult and risky mission.... A perfect action movie, and 3d-IMAX technology promised a remarkable experience?! BUT!! Imagine a small, 5 year old girl, showing her wild animals (chicken, fish, etc.) to the audience; set in an environment of cheap plastic instruments, bad textured computer simulations...

Ok; don't get me wrong: the movie really is not that boring, for there are the tensing tales of the girl's grandpa!!

And then the summit of it all: far out in space the hero is struggling for the sake of the City... sounds like action, right? But you never see anything about it - he just tells by radio: "It was a hard mission, but finally I made it!"

Movie over - money gone. Now you should awake your friends and leave the theatre!
