Storyline

On a direct collision course with Earth, a large moon rapidly approaches from the outer regions of the solar system and Dr. Dana Shaw is sent along with a specialized mining crew to try to alter its course. Once upon the moon Shaw is faced not only with a brutal time schedule and a greedy, opportunistic crew captain, but with the release of a seemingly indestructible carnivorus alien, imprisoned within the moon eons ago by a race it had been slowly decimating.

Luke Harrison: What?
Archer: Havest them, drag their remains off to...
Luke Harrison: Eat them right?
Archer: Bury them... it was a carrion eater... it ate the dead. So a hundred of their soldiers sacraficed their lives, so that the smell of rotting meat would bring it out. Then they trapped it inthis capsule and set it off into space. Over time rocks attached itself to this device. This whole thing has been one giant solitary floating Alcatraz.
Cody Harrison: Yeah... well now it's time to give it the chair!

Neutral, formula nonmovie
18 June 2000 | by (Washington DC, USA) – See all my reviews

I really can't say anything bad *or* good about this thing. Its characters are likable enough, it's capably produced and designed, and professional-looking (except for that cheesy monster suit). However, it has no originality, no ideas, and nothing you haven't seen in ALIEN, PREDATOR, ARMAGEDDON and/or OUTLAND. It's just another formula, cookie-cutter, "grimy corporate drones in deep space versus unstoppable monster" flick. Pretty much a waste of time.
