The Airborne lasers used against the asteroid are depicted as being mounted on regular jet fighters. In fact, this kind of weapon requires a much larger aircraft and extensive modifications to the ship's nose. See more »
Down at the "Asteroid" studio: "Boy, oh boy, what shall we do, what shall we do? We have no ideas at all! Hey, why don`t we steal an idea from another movie but instead of copying it, we just take away the excitement, the good FX, the breathtaking action and, hey, who cares about good acting anyway?" I think that this monologue really has occurred, because it really describes how much this movie sucks. But the worst part about it was the length!!! Do NOT rent, buy or touch this movie!!!
