Alternate Versions

The German dub changes the dialogue for the Draag council's discussion about the Om extermination. In the original dialogue, Master Taj says that Oms have caused trouble in the region of Telez, and the regions Goham and Urtana have reported similar activities. In German, Taj says that de-Om-izing has failed in Goham, as well as in "Xylan" and "Ultrabanatus". These names do not come up in the original French version. See more »

User Reviews

It's about using your noodle.
16 October 2003 | by pishlojSee all my reviews

I saw this movie a few years ago on the Sci-Fi channel during a movie marathon they were having. Loved it so much I bought the DVD.

Based on a brilliant piece of science fiction ("Oms En Serie" by Stefan Wul). The artwork is stunning, and the story line an original masterpiece.

The plotline of this story is simple.

You enslave a race of beings and take them for granted, one of them eventually learns your language, and unites all his fellow slaves in an organized attack.

Suddenly you've been conquered.

This story line was later ripped off by L. Ron Hubbard and his group of wackos. You might have read the book, or seen the atrocity of a film "Battlefield Earth".
