Storyline

The whole Moon has been divided into 5 zones (related to Earthen countries), and there is one monopoly consortium which sells the oxygen to everyone. Each zone is focused on extracting precious Helium-3. The lunar-suits provide self-gravity, and they create their own invisible helmet to contain the oxygen. The North-American zone is under the control of an Army General, and the civil workers are Earthen convicts. One of those criminals finds what seems to be a red lunar-flower with blue roots in the site of an inspection, on Moon surface. Few seconds after he touches that flower, there is a huge explosion in a nearby crater which began a moon-quake that swallows the convict and others. The appointed detective for investigation is the elder brother of the convict who touched the flower. The inquiry unveils a huge mystery that involves Russians, Indians, Japanese, the consortium, Helium-3, the convict, the fragile General's daughter, a mysterious technological gay spy Russian officer, ...

Nice romp, but seemed unfinished.
30 June 2015 | by MrPeach666See all my reviews

They basically threw everything but the kitchen sink into this film, but they kind of forgot the ending. :( As others have noted, it had enough turnabouts to set your head spinning, and any attempt to predict where it was going was bound to failure.

I liked the noir-ish feel of the old space serials, clearly the makers of this film were heavily influenced by that genre.

If you be looking for a serious SF show, you be lookin in the wrong place watching this - but if you were in the mood for a light romp with lots of plot twists, this should be just your cup 'o tea.

I'd have given it an 8 if it had a more satisfactory ending.
