OK TV Pilot
1 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I also believe this to have been done as a pilot for a possible TV series. On the plus side, the special effects are fairly well done and actually complement rather than overwhelm the somewhat thin storyline. On the negative side, the plot itself seems to have been meant to grow over the course of a hoped for TV series and therefore leaves a lot to be desired.

One could hope that should a series ever arise from this project that it would be made for more liberal and mature audiences outside the U.S. Even with the film's obviously toned down and very brief sex and violence, the SciFi channel dares show it only *after midnight* in the States!
