Quotes

Lieutenant Minns: You tried to contain me once. Didn't work.
Adam Ballard: Our weapons are pitiful against you, aren't they?
Lieutenant Minns: I didn't mean it that way.
[Smiles in an effort to set Ballard at ease]
Adam Ballard: I did. You smile at me, and I get a chill. You're smiling with a piece of your mind that doesn't belong to you.

Too Syrupy! Outer Limits Meets Little Orphan Annie!
18 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was really disappointed in this. What was designed to be some hard edged science fiction turns into some maudlin thing that you could see a mile away. After the mysterious building of some sort of space ship, we now have the gang, led by Robert Duvall, chasing the "bad" guys. The hard part is that they really had no power to do a thing. Everything is set up until the very end. A group of children are targeted. They have a plethora of disabilities. One is blind; one can't walk; etc. They are gathered up by the brains of the outfit as Duvall yells superlatives. It is so unrealistic that it is laughable. There are connections here at home that would have made this such a breach of simple decency. The writers never took into account the realities of the world, despite the relative unfairness of them. Sludge!
