I thought this movie was OK-if you're stuck home sick. It had a good SF premise but it fell apart somehow. They opened the film with a scene of someone falling through empty space-exactly the way the film Predators opens. It shares other similarities with Predators in that some of the "aliens" look like they wandered in from a set of the film Predators. No matter-it was made for light Saturday afternoon viewing anyway, so what the hey. The female lead was in good shape- looking like she had just trained for a Triathlon, which is something you don't see very often in contemporary SF. Good ending-I was expecting a poor one since it became kind of a 'monster mash' somewhere towards the end. All in all it doesn't work as big screen material for one reason or another but it works as a film to watch if you are under the weather. Thats all I got.

This film is, indeed, all about Danielle Chuchran. She is beautiful, incredibly athletic and a quite decent actress. The sci- fi in the film is of the type of Firefly, you know, you go to another planet and there are American cowboys there. So not that much. However, the few sci- fi bits in the story did further it, so in my mind that part was a success.<br/><br/>After enjoying the hell out of Shadow of the Cabal, I had to see this movie as well, especially since it starred Danielle, and I can tell you it did not disappoint. The story, as usual (shame, Arrowstorm!), was a bit silly, but simple enough to not bother me tremendously. Kevin Sorbo did play a larger role, although it&#39;s becoming a pattern in these films: he appears as some sort of father authority figure, does a few scenes, then splits.<br/><br/>The action scenes were really good, as expected from a professional stunt actress, but also the director has to be good at it. The scenes were great and reminded me of the orc elf battle that hooked me when watching Shadow of the Cabal. The implanted computer, scanner and holographic screen was a great addition and allowed the story to move fast over some logistical problems like how people find each other, coordinate over large distances and detect food or injuries.<br/><br/>There were issues with the film. The technical details in the introduction almost threw me off completely in the beginning of the film. The character of Weston was ridiculous and completely unnecessary - they could have done more with him. Also they took their sweet time to &quot;get it&quot;. I won&#39;t spoil it here, but as a hint just listen carefully at the alien language and you can figure it out in the first 15 minutes.<br/><br/>Other than that, few characters and a lot less character development made this almost a pure action film. Danielle was great, and also Melanie Stone, which you may (barely) recognize from the Mythica series. Sorbo acted well, but his character was a little bit ridiculous. He had a lot of scenes about bones and almost all cracked me up - no pun intended (OK, I did intend it a little).<br/><br/>It is far from perfect, but was one of the best movies in this particular genre and I really don&#39;t understand the mostly mean comments the film has received here. I mean, if they would have used cars instead of running around it would have been Mad Max, and you bloody loved that one!

First of all, I didn&#39;t expect much from this going into it, which helps with this sort of thing. I was pleasantly surprised.<br/><br/>It&#39;s all a matter of expectation. I used to browse the sci-fi sections of the video stores back in the 90s trying to find anything decent and this move was better than a LOT of what I watched back then.<br/><br/>It&#39;s better than all of these similar-themed movies I watched back in the day: - Survivor (1987) - Nightfall (1988) - Def-Con 4 (1985) - Cherry 2000 (1987) - Cyborg (1989) - maybe not too much better than this one, but a little.<br/><br/>I would put in on about the same level of cheesy sci-fi action fare as:<br/><br/><ul><li>Battle Beyond the Stars (1980) - Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone (1983)</li></ul><br/><br/>(well maybe not as good as the last one)<br/><br/>Seriously though, if you don&#39;t expect much of this, you&#39;ll probably be entertained.<br/><br/><ul><li>pretty good action</li></ul><br/><br/><ul><li>pretty good low-budget special effects</li></ul><br/><br/><ul><li>plot moves along pretty well without too many lags</li></ul><br/><br/><ul><li>good make up effects</li></ul><br/><br/><ul><li>lots of gorgeous southern Utah scenery</li></ul><br/><br/><ul><li>strong lead performances by Chuchran and Sorbo</li></ul><br/><br/>Overall, I would describe it as a pretty decent Sci-Fi time waster.<br/><br/>And to reference other commenter&#39;s&#39; mentions of Morlocks, this movie is WAY better than the Guy Pierce/Jeremy Irons, The Time Machine (2002)!<br/><br/>If you are interested in another Chuchran/Lyde collaboration, The Curse of the Dragon Slayer (2013) is also a pretty decent 80s style fantasy/sword &amp; sorcery flick.
