Strange though it may seem, it is theoretically possible to survive in space for up to 30 seconds without a suit. In spite of the stereotypical depiction in most SF movies, your body does not explode, your eyes do not pop (although they may well bleed), and your blood definitely does not boil.
However, holding your breath is the exact opposite of what you should do (expel as much air from your lungs as possible), and could cause fatal lung damage. So while not technically correct, the space walk scene was not as ridiculous as one might think.
On the other hand, the film still stank. Christopher Lambert plays his usual self (even in Highlander, a film I enjoyed immensely, he was a terrible actor), and none of the supporting roles added anything of interest.
Definitely one to avoid, even on a rainy day.
