I am sure that "The Void" ended up angering a lot of B movie fans when it was first released on video. You had that title, along with video box art that seemed to promise it would be filled with action and special effects. Plus, the movie boasted in its cast TV action star Adrian Paul and cult movie legend Malcolm McDowell.

But for the most part, the movie seems to be avoiding doing anything that would entertain its audience. For the first hour of the movie, I estimate that there is no more than five minutes of stuff that would be considered entertaining. For almost the entire first hour, the movie is devoted to talk - boring, pseudo-scientific talk that will have viewers wriggling in their seats and wonder what they got themselves into.

I will admit that in the last half hour of the movie, things pick up considerably. I wouldn't say that the action and special effects that happen are anywhere near first rate, but they are a relief to see after that incredibly boring first hour.

To sum up, "The Void" was the wrong title for this movie. They should have got rid of the "The", and placed an "A" directly in front of the "Void" to have an accurate one-word title that would clearly tell viewers how they should treat this movie should they come across it.
