This is an 8 movie set, so you're going to see a variance in quality, but overall, this isn't a bad set. I'll try to give a short synopsis of each film.
T-Force: This one is about a bunch of cyborgs that are created to be a new police force but get out of hand. Only one of them decides to remain true to it's programming to protect the innocent...and it has to take down the others. Not a bad little acton flick. Fans of buddy cop movies will like it.
Lifepod: Lifepod is an updating of the classic story Lifeboat...A group of people are trapped on a lifepod in space and one of them has to be the one that destroyed their passenger ship in the first place. Can they discover who the traitor is before they are all killed? It's a good Hitchcockian suspense thriller. Not bad at all!
Star Knight: Star Knight is pretty lame. On the one hand, it has a lot of B-actors and a few A-listers, like Harvey Keitel, that were nobodies at the time. The story is pretty ludicrous...an alien lands in medievel times and has to try to hide from the knights and sorcereres who would use it for their own gain. Kind of an update of A Conneticut Yankee in King Arthur's court, it's done really badly and the characters just make leaps of transition with no believability. For instance, the princess just falls madely in love with the alien, even though they can't communicate and he has no charisma whatsoever. Pretty crappy, unless you love unintentionally bad movies.
Hidden Agenda: Hidden Agenda is pretty forgettable. It's not horrible, but it's not anything to write home about either. Just a bunch of people chasing a computer disc around. Yawn!
The Sender: The Sender is about a little girl with mutant powers who is being stalked by the goverenment. An alien from another world comes to help her learn to use her powers and find out who she really is. This one wasn't bad...If you like E.T. or Starman, this one is right up your alley.
The Code Conspiracy: This has to be the worst one on here...It's supposed to be a Da Vinci Code rip-off, and it fails miserably! It's a low-end flick made on home video by what appears to be one of those Christian movie groups...About a guy who has found some Code that proves God is real scientifically and the bunch of atheist, goverenment scum who want to kill him to keep their power. It's one of those boring, preachy movies that you see late at night on the religion channels...But at least some of those have Mr. T, so you can at least laugh at them. Not even any B-actors here...Low-rent all the way. I'm a Christian, but these stupid movies don't further the belief in God...They just make all Christians look dumb and uneducated...which I personally find offensive. Give it a rest, guys!
The Invader: This one is about two aliens that come to Earth...one looking to procreate with an Earth woman so she can have a hybrid child to further their race...and another looking to kill this weak renegade. It's not bad, but it's hard to like the "hero" who more or less uses alien powers to rape a woman and impregnate her, then tries to convince her it's to save his people. The other alien just wants to kill this loser and anyone else in this hick town who gets in his way. In a cheesy, Arnold action kind of way, this one is fun! Great for fans of 80's/90's action crap-fests.
Storm Trooper: This one is about a cyborg on the run from the military who just wants to find out who he is and live his life. Of course, the ever-loving goverenment send some ninja-wannabes to take him out. His only hope is the super-sexy Carol Alt, who has just wasted her abusive husband at their home in the middle of nowhere. It's another action butt-kicking fest, but it's not a bad one. It's full of butt-stomping fun, the B-actors do a good job of carrying the story, and the f/x aren't too bad. If Jean-Claude Van Damme had been in it, it would have probably been a pretty big hit!
All-in-all, it's not a bad set considering it's just a two-disk buy. You get a lot of entertainment for your dollar. I found all of the films at watchable except for Code Conspiracy, which totally sucked. But, in this type of set, you're going to find some stinkers. At least they didn't just feel space with a bunch of old 50's "classics" like they usually do.
