A space trucker takes on a job to deliver a cargo to Earth, unaware that it is a consignment of killer robots.
Even back in the dark days of 1996 you would have thought that low-budget B-movie schlock like Space Truckers had been consigned to the VHS bargain bins of the previous decade. Yes, sci-fi movies that have the production values of Button Moon are made ironically these days, looking deliberately cheap and naff and usually broadcast on Syfy, but Stuart Gordon’s Space Truckers is the real deal, made with passion and heart and utilising its modest budget – the highest Gordon had worked with, it’s worth noting – to make the best use it could of the then-burgeoning CGI technology.
