In the not-so-distant future, Captain Jordan Strider, a Special Forces Officer in the New World Alliance, is chosen for a top-secret mission. Sent to a desolate planet, Terra 219, to arrest possible traitors to the Alliance, Strider must survive with only a government issued experimental suit as protection. Eventually Strider discovers that he has been double crossed: The mission is an experiment to test the suit, which he cannot take off. Written by Pridedyanky

less would most definitely have been more
20 November 2008 | by See all my reviews

The previous commentator praised the visual effects, the quality of the props and the aliens. however they were wrong wrong wrong. They are incredibly twee and frankly uninspiring. The main character spends the whole film in a "advanced battle suit" which apart from providing no discernible benefit when he is actually in battle, looks ridiculous and so cumbersome that the actor seems to have trouble standing up in it.

Im an ardent B movie fan and could have probably over looked this(and the frankly bafflingly awful acting from all involved save for the drink sozzled midget), but the story line was just stupid and never really full explained. The ending has an enjoyable twist which i wont mention in case any of you give this piece of crap a try, but it doesn't make up for all its other irritating weak points.

All in all they must have had a minuscule budget for this, but i spent the whole film thinking how if this had been simplified both visually and storyline wise, then it could have actually been all right. Instead its made me irritated enough to sit here writing this after having been duped into watching it by the comment i read here previously. So don't do it, leave it where it belongs, in a petrol station bargain bin, on VHS.
