Storyline

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.

Probably one of the worst B grade movies I've seen....
17 September 2014 | by TattytailsSee all my reviews

To be honest I wasn't expecting much but was sorely disappointed anyway.

This movie was set in a futuristic scene on the moon but really didn't have what it took to pull it off. Certainly nothing like the other reviews I read and not something I would recommend even as a time waster.

The script leaves a lot to be desired. It is full of puns/quips to an excess perhaps an attempt at wit that was poorly portrayed. I have to admit, I didn't finish the movie so no spoilers here. The costumes didn't have much thought and to me seemed like orange striped pajamas with moon helmets, quite out of place for a movie. The props weren't much different, garden hoses for plant vines, corny plastic flower etc. The acting fit in with the rest of the movie. Stiff and awkward.

On a positive note, it was nice to see someone can make a movie that is not full of crass language but I didn't decide to turn it off when it came to the same sex love scenes. Perhaps there was a chance it got better later but I think I gave it more time than it was worth. All I can say is there is better things to waste your time on! I think a 2 out of 10 is more than generous
