In the not so distant future mankind has squandered their resources. A team of specialists is sent to the nearby asteroid field to retrieve an asteroid that will serve to replenish some of our natural resources. However, unbeknownst to the team, there is a killer on board determined to take control of the asteroid and destroy all mankind. Written by
Sci-fi filmmaking has hit a new low with this tired re-hashing of the "Armageddon" and "Deep Impact" genre. Not surprising as the film is one in a long line of bombs from Producers Network Associates ("Deadly Wake", "Future Fear", "Replikator", etc.). Yet again they have pulled in the talented Michael Pare and reduced his acting abilities to the lowest common denominator; good-looks and sex appeal.
Michael Pare who has shown his incredible capabilities in such hit films as "Eddie and the Cruisers" and "Hope Floats", is directed to mumble his way through this space adventure which, despite its dull and unbelievable plot, actually looks as though PNA put some dollars into the effects. The space walk scenes rival anything coming out of a major studio. Unfortunately that's as good as it gets and the audience will find themselves begging for the asteroid to destroy Michael Pare's spacecraft and put a quick end to this incredibly dull film.
