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 ...

Good sci-fi flick even without the big budget bells and whistles.
1 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A nice little story about self-sacrifice and redemption disguised as a low-budget sci-fi shoot-em-up. While most of the special effects are a little cheesy, the characters and storytelling are solid. Scott Plank in the lead is both heroic and vulnerable, Jocelyn Seagrave is both ballsy and tender (easy on the eyes, too). The director does a nice job with both the action and drama, and there are even a few great comic moments (the "real" Neil Armstrong story). Revelations, about the characters' past, add some emotional layers to the movie, and a couple of fun twists help round it out as well. Check out Robert O'Reilley (StarTrek's Klingon "Gow-ron") as the main bad guy (He's pretty intense as a cold-blooded convict desperate to highjack his way back to earth).
