Storyline

In the 22nd century, seven explorers set out on a mission to earth's nearest sister planet, AURORA. Their mission - to survey and explore for future colonization. When their ship suddenly malfunctions, the crew is forced to crash land on the planet's surface, where crippling heat, poisonous water, and fierce storms threaten their lives at every turn. With a handful of supplies and little hope of rescue, their only option is a grueling four hundred mile trek to their ship's lost supply bunkers. To survive, the men will have to push their endurance to the limit and entrust their lives to a leader who will risk everything to succeed, no matter what the consequences. Written by Anonymous

A Brave New World - A struggle to watch to the end
14 August 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film has now been dropped to the level of 'free with very cheap DVD players' and it still isn't worth the money.

I tried to sell the DVD on ebay 7 times but each time all I got was laughed at for owning it in the first place.

This is without doubt the dullest and most badly written film you have ever seen. I would recommend it for only one thing, sitting in and watching with someone that you never want to see again...ever. If at the end of the film you say, "that was great lets watch it again tomorrow" then its guaranteed that even the hardiest of thick skinned none leavers will be off like a shot and bothering someone else.
