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

Absolutely awful
31 December 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Very few films I have ever seen have left me semi-conscious by the end. It really was that much of a struggle to stay awake & watch this drivel.

Usually even a really bad film will have some entertaining feature, like really hammy acting or an insane plot.

This film has nothing to redeem it whatsoever. The acting is awful, the plot completely pointless and the special effects are at least 20 years out of date. By the end I was just wishing that it would be over, but even this is drawn out, at only 87 minutes it's not one of the longest films in the world, yet the makers still found the need to pad it out with pointlessly long, lingering shots that do nothing whatsoever to improve the film.

This story could have easily been told in a 45 minute short film.

If you're considering watching this film then save yourself the time & effort to stay awake.
