Goofs

When Cal is examining the missile specs, the display shows the yield as 0.7 kJ (kiloJoules), the same amount of energy used by a 100W light bulb in seven seconds - scarcely terrifying as a missile. See more »

Hostages in Space
10 August 1999 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This movie re-uses the Dead Calm premise of hostage taking except sets it on a research space ship with a crew of 3 - the The role of the bad guy is played by Peter Outerbridge, who seems to be really coming on as an actor. His performance is not a typical cliche and really works . Interesting special effects sequences. Michelle Beaudoin is also good as the spoiled teen stuck with her parents who turns to the Outerbridge character for some interest.
