Objective review - Battlespace
12 August 2007 | by (Plovdiv, Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

OK, I think we've had enough of 1/10 ratings and "Worst movie ever!" reviews (and believe me guys, I know about bad movies! I've seen stuff so bad they make Troma look like festival art). I just watched this one, and I'm giving it 10 NOT BECAUSE IT DESERVES 10/10, but because it's better than 2.6/10. Objectively I'd say it's somewhere between 3.5 and 4.3 There are plenty of movies with flashy and fancy looking posters, which seem to be cutting edge film-making and turn out to be unwatchable uber cheese boredom. So when I saw the "Battlespace" cover this smelled like one of those, but anyway, I decided to give it a shot. I enjoy sci-fi flicks and if your expectations are not too high you might find yourself enjoying some B-movie with a nice twist.

Now I don't know what's the "Battlespace" budget, but the last thing it lacks are special effects. It's not some ultra expensive Star Wars or Transformers style CGI action, but it's pretty descent most of the time. There are some great shots with special effects. You could say the movie looks like game cinematics with actors. The SFX are quite something for an unknown direct-to-DVD feature. I even find them superior to most of the Sci-Fi Channel crap that comes out lately. This is a low-budget SFX extravaganza! What brings this movie down (except that it's 4:3 and not 16:9, which reduces the "cinema coolness" effect and adds more "made-for-TV" feeling) is bad storytelling. And when I say bad I mean BAD. First of all, I did't quite get the story - the characters were doing stuff, going to places... What for - that is a mystery to me! During most of the movie the main character's daughter's voice tries to explain the things to you, as if she's sharing her memories. Damn, don't narrate the whole movie! Rule No.1 in script writing - if you can show something, show it, don't tell us about it! And let the stuff we need to know become clear through the dialog, not some narrator explaining "This is this and that is that. And my mother does so because once upon a time she had a problem with something and blah-blah-blah". That makes the movie boring and makes you feel sleepy...

It could have been a great sci-fi feature, with all the neat (even not-so-expensive) special effects if the writing was decent and not a descent. I feel bad for all the wasted potential of this, cause it certainly looks quite good, but the bad script ruins it all. Anyway, you could give it a try - at least I enjoyed its look.
