Storyline

Apart from the sight of the earth and the moon in the sky at the same time, and the flaming rocks that fall at irregular intervals into the streets, it could be a slum anywhere on Old Earth... like the slums of Montevideo where Uncle Tio grew up. In fact, it is an abandoned mining colony in a giant crater of a large asteroid, precariously protected from vacuum. Just like the slums of Earth, the strong prey on the weak and the weak upon the weaker; and Tobi, who makes a meager living as a scrap collector and occasional bare-knuckle fighter, knows that the only chance of escape for himself and his friends lies in the monthly rocket from the Russian colony outside the crater. But the cost is more than he would usually make in a decade. Does the solution lie at the gaming tables of El Senor, who with his enforcers rules over the colony with an iron hand?

This is not a S.F. film, but it is somewhat engaging
29 November 2004 | by (Brockville, Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie is fairly frequently broadcast at odd times on Bravo Network and others -- you know, weekday afternoon movies and 3:00am time slots. It is set somewhere in space to make it feel like a location that is truly desolate and the chances of leaving are slim to none.

All of the characters in this are imperfect, not all bad people but definitely people in a bad, and almost hopelessly trapped, situation. That is true of many movies in the last 20-25 years or so, but many can't make the story or characters engaging. This one at least succeeds in that, where others have failed due to trying too hard in the acting or making the plot needlessly convoluted.

This is a story about how people in bad situations set their priorities, and in the end treat each other and themselves. And as that, it's fairly decent.

I've watched it twice on basic cable (basically for free) and it was certainly worth every penny. Heck, I'd be happy even if I spent 3-4 bucks on a rental for something "different" and got this. I've gone to the theaters and been far less impressed -- regardless of the $$$s spent or the $$$s made.
