User ReviewsReview this title
Brett Piper writes and directs. Other cast members : Joe Gentissi, Denise Coward, Bill MacGaughlin, Helen Michele Martin, Kimberly Warren and Robin Lovett.
Writer/director Brett Piper keeps the enjoyable story moving along at a zippy pace, brings an engaging earnest sensibility along with a sharp sense of self-mocking sarcastic humor to the fun proceedings, stages the exciting action set pieces with considerable gusto, and tosses in everything from a predatory mutants to a rowdy biker gang to a few funky stop-motion animation monsters for groovy good measure. The rinky-dink (not so) special effects possess have an endearingly cut-rate charm to them. Moreover, the gorgeous Denise Coward contributes a lively turn as the feisty Dana, Joe Gentissi has a ball as blithely scrappy tyrant Mad Dog Kelly, and Helene Michele Martin impresses as two-fisted motorcycle mama Toni. Both the spirited score by Zon Vern Pyles and the thrashin' hard rock soundtrack hit the stirring spot. The scenes with Trent struggling not to go insane while isolated by himself in space are pure loopy gold. An immensely entertaining little B-flick blast.
