E for effort.

The script is intelligently written and surprisingly literate. The conversations between the main characters are heavily laced with quotations and historical/literary allusions. Unfortunately the acting is amateurish at best and occasionally quite bad. There were obviously good intentions in the making of the film, and while it's often quite fun, it's just too lightweight. There are no special effect or fancy sets. It was obviously done on the cheap. The story is pretty standard with an android coming from the future to save the earth from an impending doom, but there is no sense of danger. It's hard to care about either the characters or the fate of the world. I enjoyed it, but it was a slow TV night.
