A real British 'B' movie. Special effects left a lot to be desired. Was okay to see once, but I would not care to see it again.

Wide screen DVD

10 mercenaries one unknown force, shot down during a routine transport mission between Colonies, these soldiers for hire find a simple job that paid too much maybe will force
them to pay the ultimate price over the ultimate Stakes. Moderate to low budget Sci-fi
film, shows that even on a restricted budget that a story can redeem itself. Very limited
release, great for budding film-makers to help them get the feel of how to do much more
with less.

Has a very Lovecraftian Feel to the overall film.
comes with optional Spanish sub titles, filmed in spoken English.

Movie Reviews

So low budget the fire was computer generated....
Gary | 07/23/2008

"I have no idea what this movie was about. None whatsoever. So low budget that they couldn't even afford fire (actual fire!) in most of the scenes. As for the actors, they all had heavy Scottish accents. I guess they were supposed to be the descendants of that hot head Scottie."

"What happened again? Who were these people, and what were they doing out there in the middle of the desert? They may've lost their lives, but I lost $1.05 for the rental. Really spiffy tactical energy-sphere caulking guns, though."
What The...!
F. Carnahan | Nixa, Missouri USA | 08/20/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Okay, I get the whole thing about making an incredibly low budget movie and seeing what happens. But this is no grand adventure. The story was completely un-dramatic though it tried to open with a dramatic fight scene between a space cruiser and some unbelievable foe's. The effects were "home grown" I would guess. Perhaps generated on a laptop while mass quantities of alcohol were ingested. Then, the moment the fiery villain was revealed, I literally burst into laughter.

The captain of the ship was named Captain Morgan. This was appropriate because I believe a gallon of rum is what it would take to enjoy this movie, flat on my face and unconscious (don't drink and drive a space cruiser, by the way)

Now, would I recommend buying this movie? Not on your life! I rented it from "Red Box" for one dollar and feel gypped! At the end of the movie, I looked at my wife and we both simultaneously burst into laughter again.

After all of that, now that I think about it, please rent this film just to see what I am talking about. You would NEVER understand unless you saw it for yourself. I'm warning you, however, have a can of kerosene ready to wash your eyes out when the movie is over."
