Quotes

Tobias Hatch: You know what I hate about prison? You throw a wolf into a cage, and all you're gonna get is an angry wolf. Throw him in with a whole pack, and they just make each other worse. But, if he comes out of there clean, do you think that means he was fixed?
Kye Cortland: No.
Tobias Hatch: It' means he didn't belong there in the first place. You see, the real bad wolves, they can't be fixed.

Australian Low Budget Sci-Fi that is both original and compelling
22 March 2016 | by t-dooley-69-386916See all my reviews

The synopsis here is that Kye Cortland (Dan Mor) is escaped from a planetary prison by some guerrilla types who are the enemy of the Empire and sent on a mission on a ship called 'Arrowhead' as he has the technical skills to fly it. The mission goes a tad wrong and he gets shipwrecked on a deserted moon.

There is a tradition that certain prisoners are executed on a particular day each year and Kye finds out his father is next. All he wants to do is get to him before that happens and these outlaws are his only chance. The problem is he is not alone on this moon and what he meets will change him forever.

Now this is low budget but that made me like it even more. They have gone back to basics and used bits of old vacuum cleaners and typewriters to make some of the props – even dustbin lids are employed. The acting is all excellent. Dan Mor is particularly good, but I have to say hats off to Christopher Kirby who starred in the brilliant 'Iron Sky'. He only has a small role but absolutely nails it and then some. The on board computer is brilliant too and will remind certain people of 'Dark Star' or even 'Red Dwarf'. The story itself is refreshingly original and it manages to keep the tension going right the way to the final frame. The CGI varies from rather good to above average but I am more than happy to live with that when the over all package is actually engagingly good.
