A made-for-TV riff on the Alfred Hitchcock oldie "Lifeboat," with the survivors of a starship disaster take off in an escape pod and slowly coming to the realization that the fact that the saboteur who destroyed their craft may be among them. Interesting genre-twist with an impressive cast including Robert Loggia and Ron Silver.

"LIFEPOD is an adaptation of Alfred Hitchcock's classic LIFEBOAT, and while there is no real comparison in terms of quality, LIFEPOD is a darkly engrossing tale of betrayal and hope. The cast is uniformly very good, with Robert Loggia, Ron Silver and CCH Pounder being the most familiar members. The movie is good in making the viewer feel the desperation and fear of being abandoned in outer space with low rations of food and water, and of course, the inevitable saboteur who wants them all to die. For a movie that was made for tv, LIFEPOD has high aspirations and almost achieves them."
Almost completely sucessful

"its got a solid storyline (which by nessesity leaves the characters somewhat underdeveloped), solid acting from all involved (CCH Pounder really made you feel for her), solid direction, good pacing, intense drama.... and special effects so godawful that you cant suspend disbelief when they're onscreen.....but watching a movie for the effects is essentially being shallow, so I'm only taking one star off.
I remember seeing this when it aired on TV in the early ninties...and now that i've seen it again, its about as solid as low-low budget TV science fiction gets...meaning its all good except the effects work."

"The Bottom Line:
Lifepod really has nothing in common with Hitchcock's Lifeboat aside from the basic premise of "people stuck together in a confined space, one of whom is an enemy" so it should be assessed on its own terms; judged alone, it's an enjoyable and reasonably successful sci-fi film that will keep you entertained even if the low production values become increasingly obvious as the film progresses."
