A very poor film - not worth 88 minutes of your time.
I was so amazed at just how poor this movie was that I forced myself to sit through it to the (very) bitter end and all I could think of was thank goodness I only paid £3 for it - but the more valuable loss was 88 minutes of my life where I could have done something more constructive - like count the blades of grass on my lawn or just sitting staring at the wall - honestly, you could have had more enjoyment from toothache!
To have any success at a good film you mostly (not always) need the following: 1. A good story-line/script 2. Good actors who are convincing and comfortable with their roles 3. Decent special effects (especially with space/science fiction films) 4. A decent budget (can make 1-3 above happen)
The tell-tale was the poor dialogue and interaction between the cast right from the get-go and the kiddie-level CGI of the Atlantis shuttle which actually made me laugh out loud when I first saw it (it turned out the joke was on ME!)but the REAL cheat was the cover suggesting that it's a space-based movie - it's not and it goes downhill very quickly thereafter.
I laughed again when the movie quickly took us to a sandy and wooded area where the story-line was so bad that the poor cast couldn't make the translation of it remotely believable. And seeing as I've used the word believable I also find it unbelievable that somebody got any kind of a budget or financial backing to shoot this movie in the first place.
I'm pretty sure I could take a day off work and sit with a pencil and a blank piece of paper and come up with a better story-line than that which I've just endured.
I have never placed a review of any movie previously (and we've all seen a few poor ones over the years) but this one was so bad that it made me want to find someplace that I could vent and if I can stop just one person from watching this catastrophe of a film I'll be happy. I almost feel like going to where I bought mine and hanging out there trying to save someone from doing what I did - being stupid enough to buy it.
BUY ANY OTHER FILM BUT DO NOT WATCH THIS.
I'm about to securely dispose of mine as I would with any other hazard that I have in my house where I don't want friends or loved ones being exposed to it.
