Staggeringly unwatchable mess , even for Roger Corman
11 September 2005 | by (Wavy Wheat, Nebraska) – See all my reviews

I don't normally award "1"s to movies. Even dregs like "Space Mutiny" and "Castle of Fu Manchu" will get a "2" or better ("Mutiny" actually spent some money on sets and effects, and "Fu" had Christopher Lee in it). It takes something especially awful, totally devoid of entertainment value or even basic human emotion, to get me to rate it as a "1". Not only do I have to dislike the film, I have to HATE it.Not only do I have to HATE it, I have to DESPISE it.

BUT, if ever a film deserved a "1" rating, it is "Spacejacked".

This film has been in rotation on cable for several years, and I have tried to watch it several times. Or rather, the first couple of times I tried to watch it. Then I tried to just switch back to it every few minutes. Then I simply tried to catch the ending and the credits. But I simply cannot make myself do it. This film makes dreck like "Hobgoblins" and "Knights" look like "Citizen Kane". In fact,calling "Spacejacked" "dreck" is an insult to dreck.

The sets wouldn't pass muster on a "Captain Video" serial episode. The costume designs would be rejected by the drama department at a middle school. The score is a total 'disconnect' from the events on the screen. The acting...well, the extras and the actors in the minor parts all do their best, but Corbin Bernsen (who used to actually be good) stinks up the joint something awful. I can only assume that he took one look at the script, decided that his career was basically over, and said, "What the hell, I'm gonna stink up the joint." What's worse, is he is STILL the best actor in the film.

This film drips incompetence and laziness from every frame of its film stock. It's not even fun to watch as a 'Golden Turkey'/"MST" style stinker, because on top of all its other faults, it's got no heart. I mean, come on, even "Plan 9 From Outer Space" had a heart.

I can't recommend this under any circumstances, and I'm the fellow who once said that "The Starfighters" would be watchable if you were in a certain weird mood.

Avoid like the plague, and do NOT pay money to see this!
