In the mid-27th century, the Terran Confederation is at war with the felinoid Kilrathi Empire. After destroying a Terran base, the Kilrathi have seized a NAVCOM unit with the hyperspace jump coordinates to Earth. With Terran reinforcements scheduled to arrive two hours after the Kilrathi hit Earth, it falls upon the starfighter carrier TCS Tiger Claw to keep the Kilrathi busy. Written by

Now that was a sweet 360!
Actually, that was a 540.
Did you just do that to impress me?
I'm just trying to redirect some of that testosterone. You're a total... Maniac.

First of all, I avoided this movie when it was first released because of the
bad reviews. I never played the game so I had no idea what to
I should know better...
I saw this movie for the first time on DVD, sat down with a low expectation,
and cranked up my Dolby Digital 5.1 sound system. Was I ever BLOWN away!
It was more than I expected and the characters were not as "forgettable" as
some critics said. I found the performances of Tcheky Kanyo (Paladin) and
David Warner (Admiral Tolwyn) were memorable. Saffron Burrows (Angel) was
great, except that she handled her "crisis" at the end rather badly. But
overall the movie was a treat. I would recommend it for anyone to at least
rent this and check it out!
