Trivia

In space, you can not explode as is seen in the movie. If you are left with no oxygen your body can double its size due to bubbles in the bloodstream but not explode. See more »

Goofs

The spaceship these astronauts use to land on Mars is supposed to be tough enough to survive launch from Earth, months in space, landing on Mars and then returning to Earth. But somehow the control boards are so flimsy that they short circuit just from someone falling against them. See more »

Sci-Fi Channel needs to give us something to make us THINK, not our brains shrivel up
4 June 2005 | by Asteri-AtypicalSee all my reviews

How can a channel called the *SCI-FI* Channel be so horrible at creating movies which appeal to its core audience? Sadly, SFC tends to brag about it's long line of "original pictures"; none of which are worth watching, especially by fans of the Sci-Fi genre.

Crimson Force is no exception. More space-drama-eye-candy which neither captures the imagination nor stirs the mind. I agree with a previous poster - "who writes this stuff anyway"? It was like warmed over meatloaf. You already have had plenty of it before you began. It would be nice to see something come from SFC which actually seems to have been written by someone with an advanced brain. Crimson Force seems to have been aimed at teenagers who have never seen enough Sci-Fi to recognize how hackneyed and pedestrian this drivel is.

I won't commenting on the acting. It's not worth the typing.

SciFi Channel needs to learn to appeal to SCIENCE FICTION FANS when it creates ORIGINAL pictures. Give us something which gives us something to THINK about or, at least, stirs our imagination. Quit ignoring your CORE audience! Enough of the typical brain-dead Hollywood style drivel. We don't care if it looks like it was created in someone's back yard - just so that it has a GOOD IDEA and is written by someone with more than a room temperature IQ.
