Fun Sci-Fi Flick
8 November 2005 | by HorrorMavenSee all my reviews

I thought this movie looked kind of geeky, but I'd heard good things from a friend, and it had Jeffrey Combs, so I gave it a chance. I was pleasantly surprised. The story held my interest and the dialogue was fun and interesting. There is a touching scene (thanks to Mr. Combs' fabulous acting skills) with the main character that made me almost want to cry. It was sort of like "Blade Runner Lite." The news casts interspersed between the action are worth the rental fee alone. They're really hilarious and some are right on target! Brion James was great as the evil Decker and Wings Hauser did well as the Zero Man hero. I might be just in a really, really good mood, but I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It's fun afternoon viewing.
