Storyline

We are sent back to the battlefield, as the Federation's best Mobile Infantry unit are slowly being overpowered by the killer bugs. They are light years from the nearest reinforcements and are trapped on a remote outpost. They set up protection around the post, keeping all the bugs waiting for them to leave. But now the enemy is in the outpost, in a way which they would have never thought of. Written by Film_Fan

Trivia

The character of Kobe was originally written as an Indian named Haji. Sony, the studio behind the film, requested an East Asian character for the eastern markets, so Haji became Kobe. See more »

Goofs

During the bug attacks on the abandoned outpost, targets on the squad's portable radar unit move onscreen between rotations of its sweep arm rather than appearing in different static locations with each new sweep. See more »

A Shame
12 August 2008 | by PapaT_86See all my reviews

I wouldn't say this was a disappointment from the point of view of being a feeble follow up to the original which, satire or not, wasn't *that* great. I would say the disappointment comes more from internal flaws. On the surface this is far better than most DTVs, several aspects of the production cleverly mask the film's low budget, and initially you might be forgiven for thinking it was a theatrical release. Unfortunately four fairly major flaws quickly arise: 1) The film is very boring 2) It doesn't make a lot of sense 3) Even if it was interesting and made sense it would be hard to tell because the camera wont stay still for five seconds 4) If the camera stayed still for five seconds you might not notice because the lighting is so poor.

So, not really worth bothering with then.
