Trivia

The original director of the film was Gore Verbinski. When the budget was upgraded, Brian De Palma started to show interest. Rewrites in the script were also done. See more »

Goofs

There is a fundamental misunderstanding of how the jet packs work. In space, with no friction or proximal gravitational pull, a single burst from the jets accelerates the operator into constant motion until a counteracting burst slows them down. There would be no need for the multiple instances of everybody "using up fuel" by burning their jets constantly when trying to maneuver. See more »

Another great idea down the drain
3 August 2000 | by (Karlstad, Sweden) – See all my reviews

I'm disappointed. No, actually, I'm sad. No, in fact, Iäm rather angry - I have never seen such a great and wonderful idea be turned into something so insanely sappy and corny and cheesy and stupid in my entire life.

It could have been so fantastic - it could have been a "Contact"-class sci-fi flick. Instead, we are served the lowest kind of americanism: staring into space; uttering "Oh my God" a hundred times and at every single event, small or great; A crying alien - PLEASE!; holding hands; the mandatory loss of someone dear; the lone hero who has nothing to lose and so on and on and OOOONNNNNNNN!!!!!! There is only one leniency to be found: it IS fairly scientific and believable, except for the fantastic feat of landing the satellite thingy exactly on the spot.

This is by far the most disappointing film I have seen. It is always terrible to see a really bad movie, but it's a lot worse when they trick you into thinking it could actually be worth watching. This one certainly isn't...
