Storyline

A master jewel thief in 21st century Los Angeles targets the illegal emerald smuggling operations of a highly-connected crime syndicate. During what he believes to be a routine heist, cat burglar Harry Maxwell discovers that his target, notorious criminal Sanchez Boon is also the target of a police raid. In attempting to evade both the law and Boon's well-armed men, Harry meets Pandora Grimes, one of dozens of young women Boon kidnapped to work in his factory. When Boon sets a group of social deviants free and hijacks a space transport ship and its crew, only Harry and Pandora's cunning can save the hundreds of innocent people aboard.

A Life changing experience
17 August 2000 | by (Loughborough, England) – See all my reviews

I stand at the crossroads of life. Until I saw this film I was happy to tread the humdrum career path I had laid for myself as 2nd year computer scientist. However, somthings are inexcuiseable, and this film is one of them. My Immediate thoughts were "Someone actually paid for this!", and "Won't the pain go away ?". Later, after it had (thankfully) ended, I was struck by the timeless thought - that comes after all mediocer to Bad films

  • "I could do better than that!". This time it had lasting effect, I am


now considering ditching CS and looking seriously at enrolling in Film school. If you are thinking about going to film school I would recommend this attrocity, as it will leave you with a warm glow - safe in the knolage that you too could have done better.

This sort of thing must be stamped out.
