Never mind the guilty fact that i actually sat through the entire film, this was basically the worst movie i have ever seen. It it pretty much on par with Ridley Scott's LEGEND which was a fantasy stinker as well. They tried to save HABITAT with nudity, swearing, and teen angst. I thought it must have been an 80's film, set in the future, because it was such weird stuff. The costumes are reminiscent of some bad 80's drama, and the silver space suits belonged in a family channel robot movie. Shame on 1997 for releasing that garbage. As a point of reference: other films that came out in 1997 include Boogie Nights, Grosse Pointe Blank, and Life is Beautiful. Watch Habitat for kicks but don't expect to like it.
