Goofs

During Nelson's briefing with Ferdinand about Titan, the sea on his screen referred to as the Punga Mare is actually the Ligeia Mare. This is likely because clear images of the Punga Mare are not available. See more »

Proper SciFi Movie
18 June 2017 | by simon_atterburySee all my reviews

I write very few reviews for IMDb but this film deserves a positive one. Firstly it was broadcast on SciFi channel so was expecting the usual "Space Lobster v Mega Puffin" script, direction and acting. How wrong I was.

This is a proper SciFi film with an intriguing plot, great script, excellent acting, great direction, above average (for the low budget) and intelligently realised special effects and a proper well written score. I would love to have seen what the director would have done with an additional $250,000 costume and set building budget.

As one reviewer has already stated, let's hope there is a sequel but this time with a bigger budget so that the director Rob York has less to hold him back.
