...and it's pretty good. RSM Benton is given more depth than he was during the series. The story ends abruptly, but that's fine. Exposition probably would've dragged it down a bit. Mark Ayres' music is a bit overpowering for the most part. It generally works only when it's low key. Some of the jump cuts are effective, some are jarring. My biggest gripe on the technical side came during the scenes where the UNIT soldier was guarding the jeep. Why shoot it in slow motion? I was initially under the impression that time was slowing down, but apparently that wasn't the case. The confrontation between Benton and his dead father was great, and there's a realistic fight scene at the end. All in all, a pretty good first go.

Rounding out the tape is a "Making of" special where you get an idea of how enthusiastic Keith Barnfarther was over filming the whole thing, and how long-winded collaborator Nicholas Briggs is. There's also a summary of some of the independent spin-offs produced by Reeltime Pictures since.
