It took awhile (most of the first half of the film) for this one to get going but I stuck with it and felt rewarded later. The bad guys are eco- terrorists and really nasty. I really enjoyed it when they got theirs...ha! The production values were actually pretty well done considering this was a Roger Corman project. The cast was a bit uneven, either really good or pretty awful. The good girl lead was awful whilst the bad girl lead was excellent...and so it went. Pare was effective as usual.
I really thought the film told a compelling story, no shortcomings there. I recommend this movie if you enjoy somewhat low budget sci-fi that delivers a pretty big bang for the buck. Here is some clever film making...albeit it was a little to casual in the beginning. Pacing does matter! If you come across a copy somewhere check it out, I enjoyed it. It is definitely a lot better than the 4.4 it scored here.
