Tolerable Low Budget SF for children with an amusing villian in Tim Curry.
4 March 1999 | by (Philadelphia) – See all my reviews

Although this film has its boring moments, (okay, its got more than enough boring moments), Curry fans will enjoy his romp as the evil, mind sucking, Dr. Kao, who delights in tormenting his assistant with constant threats of mind-wipes when he screws up. Rocky Horror fans might giggle when Curry utters some familiar phases in this flic, such as "Bring them up to the lab..." and "Anticipation..." I especially enjoyed one scene when Curry stops and concentrates very hard, then tells his assistant "Oh, sorry, I thought perhaps some feelings of compassion were occurring to me...but I was wrong."

The children, who are running away to a "New Eden," are the main stars of this story, and luckily they are quite tolerable. The violence is low-key, lots of chasing and bellowing from armor-clad guards, some explosions for color, but no blood.
