Storyline

Supernova chronicles the search and rescue patrol of a medical ship in deep space in the early 22nd century and its six-member crew which includes a Captain and Pilot, a co-pilot, a medical officer, a medical technician, a search and rescue paramedic, and a computer technician. When their vessel, the Nightingale 229, answers an emergency distress signal from a comet mining operation in a distant galaxy, the crew soon finds itself in danger from the mysterious young man they rescue, the alien artifact he's smuggled aboard, and the gravitational pull of a giant star about to supernova. The resulting explosion will be the most massive explosion in the universe. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Lou Diamond Phillips who plays Yerzy turned down the role first few times when it was offered to him but once Walter Hill was hired as director he called Phillips and send him 40 pages of his re-written script which Phillips liked and accepted the role. Problem was when he did a rewrite of the script, not knowing that the president of United Artists was very attached to the script. Hill said the budget of the film was cut halfway through production. When filming started Hill was forced to keep re-writing the script while studio executives were on set watching over him. Phillips also said that once Francis Ford Coppola was called in to re-edit the movie he sent everyone from the cast a letter saying; "All of your work in this film is quite good. It has its problems. I'm going to recut it, hopefully in the spirit of what Walter Hill wanted." But Hill ultimately took his name from the movie. See more »

Quotes

Karl Larson: I think you're making a big mistake, Captain.
Nick: [spins on his heels] Oh, yeah? You want to clarify that?
Karl Larson: I'm offering you the opportunity of a lifetime and you're passing it up for all of us.
Nick: For all of us? Your opportunity of a lifetime has cost us the life of our ship's captain, it has endangered the lives of this crew, and it's wasting our critical time. All this for some half-baked delusional belief that you'll make yourself rich. There is no opportunity here and there is no us.

Big Bomb, Much Like An Actual Supernova
20 September 2003 | by See all my reviews

Supernova was the beginning of the Downfall for Lou Diamond Phillips if you ask me. Anyway, the movie is about a traveling hospital rescue spaceship, that moves about the cosmos to save stranded vessels and what not. They come across a distress call, and zip off in some sort of warp travel.

After arriving there they come across a stranded miner and some strange material, that turns out to be pieces of the 5th dimension. And then the movie finally collapses under its own stupidity.

Mediocre acting, nice special effects, REALLY stupid plot, all create a nice mixture to cause minor insanity in the viewer. Some people even lose all conscious memory of having ever seen this movie, confusing it with Red Planet or some other such film.

In other words, Run!
