What's next for Hopper, Infomercials?
14 May 2004 | by See all my reviews

There are SO many screwups and mistakes in this movie that I gave up counting after the first ten minutes. The acting simply HAS to be the worst I have EVER seen in my life, The effects can be done better on a home PC using 3DsMax software and the writing stinks so bad I thought the film was a comedy...I'm assuming it wasn't. For a start, The exterior jet is a Cessna Citation, and aircraft I am quite familiar with having piloted one myself and yet, when the main charecters enter the cockpit they are standing....not only are they standing, they are standing side-by-side in the doorsway. Standing in a citition is like standing in a VW beetle....simply no friggin' way. Does this director think audiences are simply stupid? or was this a cast and crew simply desparate for a paycheque?...either way, they didn't deserve one. The story, about an asteriod/comet about to impact the moon isn't so far fetched...the fact that they bounce back and forth from it 'impacting the moon' in one scene, to 'aproaching Earth's atmosphere' in the next clearly shows the desparation of the crew to simply have their name on the credits...obviously a first for most of the cast and crew. The biggest joke of the whole film??.....STEALING SCENES/FILM FOOTAGE FROM "AIR AMERICA" What?...The director didn't think anyone would notice the 'flying boxcar' crash scenes...do the makers of "Air America" know you used these shots?.. I can only sum it up this way: I simply had to watch this one right through although (my kids fell asleep after ten minutes) just to see how BAD this could get and, trust me on this, the whole cast and crew should sue to have their names taken off the credits.
