An opportunity for improvement
6 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

Like all movies and stories, it has to start somewhere. There is a potential that some will like it and some will not. I for one really liked it. Although the baseline of the story has similarities from other shows, it had it's own uniqueness. What I disapprove of,is that they left it with the pilot instead of at least showing a few more episodes.

If you recall Star Trek (Original Series) also had similar issues - however the movie industry is really fresh out of ideas. The keep remaking the same movies over and over for example Spider Man, Superman, Peter Pan, War of the Worlds, Cape Fear, Bram Stokers Dracula, to name a couple.

The Warlord: Battle for the Galaxy has an opportunity to expand beyond Star Trek the Movies - with today's technology it would be Damn Cool! :) I say to the producers - Use Benedict Cumberbatch as Justin Thorpe, Emma Stone as Rula Kor, and John Pyper-Ferguson as Heenoc Xian.

Hell this movie can yield on returns at lease $1.2 Billion... There is a lot of potential.
