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 »

Scifi action- drama with good performances
10 August 1999 | by (San Diego) – See all my reviews

The plot is familiar - small group of people being held hostage by crazy bad guy. However, the acting is good, and the story works. Set in space, a family is terrorized by an escaped convict that they have rescued. The daughter naturally falls for the good looking visitor (afterall, she is bored and stuck in space with her parents). Soon, the whole family is in trouble, but in this one, it is the mother who pulls off the save of the day

  • and quite believably as well. Good performances all around.
