The production values of a porno movie applied to sci-fi
29 March 2009 | by See all my reviews

This "movie" is perhaps the most insulting piece of science fiction I've ever see. There is literally nothing redeeming about this film. Bad scrypt, horrible actors (I can't believe the guy from JAG is in this piece of garbage), special effects that could've been done better in the 1960s. This is the kind of film that you watch to see if it can really get any worse and IT DOES... A LOT. We're introduced to a spaceship "The Visitor" that is meant to be explored by a crew commanded by Mr. JAG himself. This crew does not only act like the most unprofessional bunch of "soldiers" you could hire but it definitely taught me that you can flirt and make sexual comments under any situation, yes "Alien Spaceship" included. If at this point you are thinking this might be one of those "it-is-so-bad-it-is-a-good-movie" please don't. The previously explained plot is only followed by some of the worst acting possible. I'm talking porno acting which coincidently suits the crappy scrypt and the rest of this abomination.
