Trivia

The film is called "Scavengers" and is about space troops called The Scavengers, who scavenge from planets and space battles, to survive. There was once a British game show of the same name called "Scavengers" (1994 - 1995) about two teams of contestants, ("Scavenger" space troops") who went aboard a dangerous abandoned alien spacecraft and collected spare metals in a series obstacle games, to "scavenge, salvage and survive!".

It has one or two good moments.
26 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I actually had a good time watching this movie. For me, that is a huge piece of criteria in judging a film. Acting, setting, special effects and production value aside, if I enjoy the film I give it some slack.

Overall it's a poor film. The computer generated space flight scenes are very poor (there's even a scene near the beginning where the background "stops" during flight). The character development is ham-fisted at best, and the acting is overkill. They are attempting to be dramatic, but fail to carry the viewer into the illusion. I felt as though I was supposed to care, but didn't understand why I should. That's a huge negative, because in a low budget film like this the writing needs to carry the show when the setting and special effects can't.

I think the setting is my favorite part. It's ridiculously two-sided. For example: The "good guy ship" is well lit, clean, has a good warm atmosphere, is filled with hot blonds and handsome young men who are affectionate and humorous with each other, and a captain who is like the gentle father figure of the family.

The "bad guy ship" is dark and brooding, messy, with dark haired ladies and gruff mercenary men that like to kill people, and a captain who is not only cruel and violent but CLEARLY (and enjoyably) insane. Almost every word he says ranges from ridiculously over-dramatic to completely nonsensical. I loved it. While his acting was atrocious and the writing was horribly overdone, you could see that he was doing his best to get into it, and having a good time. Oh, and the ship has a "crew" of masked men (who I suspect were all played by the same guy) that is utterly expendable and easy to kill and never voices a complaint; an important accessory for any evil space pirate.

Also, the music is worth noting here. While not an amazing soundtrack, it does a very good job of setting the tone that the director was aiming for. It is very atmospheric and pulls you in nicely. That, and the few moments of humor that are inserted are enough to turn a potential disaster into a moderately enjoyable experience.

Good or bad, I can honestly say that I wasn't bored watching it.
