Trivia

In the last fight scene David Mattey, who plays the Super Drone, was wearing a suit of armor and prosthetic appliances on his face and full colored eye contacts, the type that surround the whole front of the eye, greatly restricting your vision. To add to the difficulty the scene was filmed in the rain and at night. Mattey ended up being a better swordsman than his stunt double, who ended up sitting out the scene. See more »

Goofs

Towards the end of the movie, three red drones are hunting Tallis in a sewer. The water level is only knee deep. Tallis dives under the water's surface and the shot shows him swimming in water that is waist deep to the drones. The next shot shows Tallis coming up out of the water behind the last drone and killing it. However the water level is only knee deep. Tallis then ducks back under the water and we see a shot of him swimming around again in water that is at least waist deep. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Angel - Tallis' Rifle: 'It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity.' Albert Einstein made that statement when the steam powered locomotive was still a wonder of technology. I wonder what theory he would have had for the mess mankind has made of things now. Humankind did the best that it could most of the time, but complacency cost them. The first wave of the Drone assualt destroyed them. They never had a chance to regroup after that first devastating attack. They had ...

unbelievably bad
20 May 2007 | by rcragunSee all my reviews

For some reason I thought going into this that this was a new mini-series on SciFi for Katee Sackholm since Battlestar is supposedly closing up shop after the next season. I probably don't need to tell you that I was wrong, but boy am I glad I was. This was such a terrible movie on so many levels.

First, there is absolutely no character development - None! Seriously! And, of course, that doesn't keep the two main characters from having sex, 'cause, well, that's what a guy and a girl in a super low budget awful film do.

Add to the lack of character development the completely re-hashed plot idea (robots take over the world - Terminator, The Matrix, and hundreds of other films) and the unbelievably undeveloped story line and you get a terrible, terrible film.

As I was watching it I kept looking to my wife and saying, "And this is what happens when you shoot a movie without an actual script. You see, you just set up a whole bunch of fight sequences and then say action and film." I've never been in the military and I could have given the film more realistic guidance on how soldiers behave in war.

Rarely do I sit and hope for a film to end, but I did with this one. Sci-Fi should funnel its money into the programs it cares about - its series, not these ridiculous, written-by-monkeys, movies.
