Ben Rutherford (Harold Pruett), a man looking for work, arrives on Moon City, a colony on the moon to find work as a miner. On Moon City, Ben meets a pilot named Sam Horton (Brion James) and a gambler named Armond Crille (Rutger Hauer). Armond has won the readout of the remote planet "Asteroid 13" from a poker opponent in a poker game and Ben encourages Sam and Armond to travel to "Asteroid 13" to do mining, believing Asteroid 13 maybe another source of gold. Joined by a woman named Camilla Jones (Joan Chen), who also wants to be involved with the mining on Asteroid 13, the three companions become paranoid, believing one of them may want to claim the gold for themselves. But a ruthless Chinese bandit known as Loo Seki (Don Stroud) has also arrived on "Asteroid 13", and is also after the gold. Written by Daniel Williamson

for pete's sake what junk
15 May 2002 | by william_blakeSee all my reviews

tell you the truth i don't really know where to start with this 'movie'. i don't know what's worst, the ridiculous acting that makes me wanna cry, the silly so called 'special effects', the worst directing job i've ever seen or the dialogue that made me get the bucket in the middle of the movie.

i always thought of rutger hauer movies rather 'campy', but this one's so poor poor poor it's not even worth the tape it was recorded into, and it doesn't even make you laugh with it's poorness, it's just that poor.

the only good thing about this movie was it's length, i couldn't have taken another minute of it.

there's a better rutger hauer/joan chen movie that proves they CAN act,

it's called blood of heroes, watch that instead.
