Storyline

Floating dead in space, transport ship Genesis becomes an unsolvable mystery. All hands on board have been killed. What began as a simple transport mission for the crew of the Genesis, ends with not only their bloodshed, but the loss of an important military prisoner. The people of earth are in a time of crisis. They are waging war against a far superior opponent, an alien race called the Cnidarians. After a bloody assault on a military ship, the Vendetta, USSM special forces were able to capture their first Cnidarian prisoner, code named 71099. But commonly known through out the fleet as Ediolon, the phantom. Realizing that a military transport would be too obvious of a target to their enemy, the USSM enlisted the freelance ship Genesis, commanded by Nathaniel J Rhys to secretly transport the prisoner to the high security prison located on Mars' moon Demos. The ship never arrived. General Rothman immediately launches an investigation team, and is determined to get to the bottom of ... Written by The Shumway Brothers

Surprised by the Average Rating
15 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this on Amazon because I like Sci-Fi and the premise seemed decent and IMDb had an 8.0 rating (although only 53 votes at the time). Although I know how IMDb early votes are usually high, because they are mostly from those whom worked on the film, I figured it might be decent anyway.

I was wrong! It was a tough 40+ minutes, especially in the beginning. The acting was poor overall and the dialogue contrived. Did not expect very good SFX cause it was a short, but was surprised that they did not even use lighting well in the scenes.

The story and premise I thought might be good turned out to be mundane.

My advice, ignore the rating on IMDb, and only watch if you are extremely bored, like experimental stuff, or have seen EVERYTHING else and just want something you have not seen. Otherwise skip it!
