Pretty Good Movie, Considering...
20 March 2005 | by (Port Colborne, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

I just finished watching this movie right now on Showcase (Canada). I had no clue what the movie was, but there was nothing much on TV, so I just watched it.

This movie, for what it is, is actually a very decent film. Including the obvious Mark Hamill, I noticed a couple other actors I knew, including the main star, Jason James Richter (from "Free Wily" and "The Neverending Story III"). Richter did well, as did the fiery and cute Melissa Galianos (who played as Cara).

It's a semi-adventurous, semi-science fiction movie with a nice uniqueness to it, as opposed to other alien-type movies. This one focuses more on the characters and their task-at-hand rather than the alien life the movie deals with.

Assuming that there was probably not much funding for this film, there were actually impressive and really decent special effects... much more decent than a lot of other so-called more popular movies/TV shows out there anyway.

In the end, the movie has a couple loose ends that are basically not explained, but who cares... the movie was a good movie overall, in my opinion. It's also an especially good movie if you take it for what it is, and not clumsily compare it to the best-sellers out there... which is highly unfair.

If you're the type of person to be either very picky, or maybe you only like the high-end films, steer clear of this one... but if you're not, and you enjoy the little fun/adventurous-type romps out there for what they're worth (such as "Little Monsters," "Howard the Duck," or even "Goonies"), then you'll like this one, I'm sure. :-)

Thanks, Mike Sorge.
