Great for all fans of Galaxy Quest
19 May 2020 | by blott2319-1See all my reviews

Personally, I think Never Surrender is the ideal Making-Of documentary. There are countless movies nowadays that have this kind of material available as soon as the blu-ray is available to own, but that doesn't allow for the passage of time to see how the film will hold up and how it affects culture and fandom. Never Surrender takes a good deep dive into a film that was made 20 years ago, and is able to give perspective not only on how it was made, but more importantly how it has impacted the lives of those who love it. It is a true love-letter to Galaxy Quest, and it instantly made me want to watch the film again. What I think they nailed in this documentary is pinpointing the elements that made it resonate for many people. It includes interviews with all the key players who are still alive, and is overloaded with clips of fans at all different levels of obsession. As a documentary about a film that I love, it certainly was enjoyable to watch, but it's also hard to rate/rank because it is entirely reliant on love of Galaxy Quest to get that enjoyment. Needless to say, I recommend all Questarians watch Never Surrender soon because it is a delight. But if you're not a fan of Galaxy Quest, there's simply no reason to even think about watching this documentary.
