Trivia

Although supposedly based upon a book by Edgar Rice Burroughs, there is no relationship whatsoever between the book and the plot of this movie. One wonders if the writers even read the Cliffs Notes. See more »

Goofs

One of the German crewmen by himself carries a drum of either crude oil or diesel fuel. Depending on the exact contents and barrel type, this would weigh a minimum of over 300 pounds, and possibly over 400 pounds. See more »

Not great
29 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really wanted to like this movie as I have always liked C. Thomas Howell but unfortunately I can't say that I liked it. I can say that I watched it, but that's about it.

I was able to sit through it and that may be the best that Howell can hope for. The dialog was a bit unimportant and even somewhat silly at times. The whole thing seemed like a compromise - which I am sure to some degree (as with anything under budget constraints) it was.

There was no effort exhausted in building characters that you could care about or for that matter knew anything about. When someone got killed you just did not care - at all.

The more fascinating and cerebral aspects of this story were completely glossed over or avoided altogether; although I did find it interesting that there was a brief discussion on the details of refining petroleum. which I had expected would be ignored (okay in movies I guess).

Overall, it barely held my attention and came off as another lame Sci-Fi channel, low budget, bad CG feature.

Don't get me wrong, there were some things to like, but I think in this case, Howell probably had his hands tied as far as time/money are concerned and more money/time could have been invested in script, effects and filming.
