User Reviews

Basically, it goes down as a (non-intentional) B-movie parody.
28 April 2001 | by (Lappeenranta, Finland) – See all my reviews

Saw this one as a rental film, and I just have to say it's about the worst beyond-even-b scifi film I've ever seen... The whole submarine/time portal plot is just so unrealistic and the "poor man's Emperor Palpatine" as The Ultimate Evil so ridicilous this thing goes down more as a b-scifi parody than anything else... If you think of renting/buying the pitiful movie, I suggest you forget it and go for Spaceballs (or something like that) instead.
