But I was also right about the screenplay being not so hot. To begin with, so much of this screenplay seems familiar. The main theme of the movie seems cribbed from countless direct-to-DVD B movies from the past. Also, the characters are characters you have seen in many movies before, from their motivations to their actions. You'll be several steps ahead of both the stories and the characters at any point in the movie.
What some viewers might not expect, however, is how silly the movie gets at times. For example, it's conveniently not explained how the nations of the world, even working together, would possibly be able to afford such a complex space station/satellite system, let alone maintain it. Also, it's strange that the world pictured in this movie has space technology decades ahead of our present level of technology, but the technology seen on Earth is virtually the same as it is presently in our real world. Trust me, there are a lot more silly moments that space does not permit me to get into further.
I admit that the entire package put together didn't bore me, but all the same I was far from satisfied. It's no wonder this movie underperformed at the box office, even when considering the foreign grosses. The only circumstances where you should watch the movie is when you are in a really undemanding mood and you have to concentrate on another task while watching the movie. Don't fear missing any movie details while working on your task - as I said, you'll be several steps ahead at any moment.
As it turns out, the remaining 60% or so of the movie isn't that much more speedy in its unfolding, with the plot plodding along at a glacial pace. Actually, it could have been much worse, since there are signs that some key sequences were cut down or eliminated entirely somewhere along the line. This leaves quite a few unanswered questions, such as the fate of the lead character's main tormentor after the locker room shower scene, and what exactly happened in the past with the lead character's mother. At the end of the movie, you are left hanging in several aspects, and you'll be far from satisfied.
The movie is fairly well produced on an extremely low budget (though occasionally the seams show slightly), and the lead actress is willing to get naked several times. But as a whole, the movie is too muddled and bogged down to get much enjoyment out of it. If you should come across it on Netflix or elsewhere, I suggest you do the title action.
