Storyline

Ben Rutherford, a man looking for work, arrives on Moon City, a colony on the moon to find work as a miner. On Moon City, Ben meets a pilot named Sam Horton and a gambler named Armond Crille. Armond has won the readout of the remote planet "Asteroid 13" from a poker opponent in a poker game and Ben encourages both Sam and Armond to travel to "Asteroid 13" to do mining, believing Asteroid 13 maybe another source of gold. Joined by a woman named Camilla Jones, whom too wants to be involved with the mining on Asteroid 13, the three companions become paranoid, believing one of them may want to claim the gold for themselves. But a ruthless Chinese bandit known as Loo Seki has also arrived on "Asteroid 13" and is also after the gold. Written by Daniel Williamson

Low budget but still worth watching
12 May 2005 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Well, Hauer and Chen has done better acting but I really think we need movies like this. I kind of liked the movie because it still has a story to tell despite bad directing and low budget. The first thing that struck me was the bad effect's in the opening scenes but then I saw that it was computer generated graphics and not CGI in a time when Windows 95 was the hottest OS. So I can overlook that.

The movie has a few good unexpected twists but it's an all Hollywood movie so the end is highly predictable.

Inspite of all the bad things I had a good time watching this movie on DVD and I can recommend you to rent it or even buy it because it's an old movie and the price is really low. I bought the DVD and I will watch it a few times again.
