Goofs

The English dub in inconsistent on whether the Draags think the humans had organized life or not. In the original French version, the Draag council discusses that there is proof the humans of Earth may have had intelligence and a culture of their own, but they still think the evidence is not conclusive. The English version however inserts the line "they may have destroyed their entire civilization", making it look like the Draags have been aware that the humans at one point were civilized.

It's about using your noodle.
16 October 2003 | by See 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".
