Quotes

Murdoch: Well just settle down and relax, while I finish telling you the Armstrong story.
Lucas: OK
Murdoch: Well His first words were 'Congratulations Mr. Gorsky.'
Lucas: Right
Murdoch: Well a lot of theories popped up about what Armstrong meant, like maybe he saw something up here that proved the Russians made it first or that he was some kind of double agent sending a message to Moscow. Finally he got sick of hearing about it so he decides to set the record straight. Turns out when he was a kid, Armstrong lived next door to an ...

Passable Sci Fi and action film worth looking at.
16 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this a few years ago. I thought that it looked OK and OK it was. Not an outstanding movie by any means but it has some ingredients that make it appealing to certain people. Obviously to some it won't. One blessing that the film has is that it features veteran character action actor Stack Pierce who plays Will . When the film swings into action mode Stack Pierce's experience in this genre comes in very handy and he plays it well. This slightly better than mediocre Scifi film that is about escaped prisoners attempting to hijack the moon base and gain passage back to earth does have a few saving graces. Stack Pierce and Kurt Fuller are two of them , and I guess that you'll have to watch the film to see the others.
