The best thing about this DVD is that the actor's got paid.

The worse thing about this DVD is the actors were probably overpaid.

What were they possibly thinking after they read the script?

This was worse than Wing Commander.
(1 out of 5 stars)

"The plot was weak, most of the actors were horrid (though in all fairness to them, they weren't given much to work with) and even the special effects weren't anything to write home about. My deepest sympathies to Michael York, who must forever live with the fact that his name is in the credits for this movie.Just for an example, this supposedly top secret mission to a hidden location, in a dangerous region of space that, for whatever reason, the war profiteer character was wandering around in once not to long ago, is suddenly visited by pirates (who are not mentioned anywhere else in the movie) who surround the black hole with... mines, randomly. No one else is supposed to know about the dark planet, so we are left to believe that a band of phantom pirates are wandering around space leaving mine fields in random locations, or maybe they just have a black hole fetish. I don't think I've ever seen a sci-fi movie this hokey. In fact, I don't think I've ever seen a movie this bad before, period. Watch this only if you're having a lame movie festival."
Better than what I was expecting

"I am a big scifi fan and a friend recommended this film. I was plesantly surprised to see Paul Mercurio. I have been a fan of his since Strictly Ballroom. He was quite believable as the hero "Hawke." What I liked was that he wasn't completely gung ho and he had a few good oneliners. The storyline was believable and the effects weren't bad considering their budget. The acting was good, especially the main characters. I liked this much better than the first Star Trek film (original cast) and I'm a big Star Trek Fan. I plan on buying the DVD to add to my scifi collection. A good Saturday Afternoon flick."

"after viewing this tape, i felt as if i was trapped on the dark planet. the story is limp and aimless, with no real direction. badly written plot that makes no sense. who are all the characters supposed to be? i couldnt tell you. this movie must have been written by a seven year old."
