Cheesy but fun!

"First let me say that I wish they'd allow us to rate half-star intervals here; I'd have given this another half-star, mostly due to the great lines given to Arye Gross. I never heard of the guy before, but he's hilarious here in the role of unlikely hero (that also doesn't want to be hero). Reminds me just a little of the Ash character in "Army of Darkness" or the Jack Burton character in "Big Trouble in Little China". It's Arye Gross' performance that raises this film above mediocrity. Without his character, the movie would be a plain-jane sci-fi movie with nothing special about it.... ....Except Maryam D'Abo, whose sexiness could almost carry the whole thing by itself. Mind you, the character she plays isn't a particularly sexy character, but her subtle beauty shows through anyway, and between her and Gross, there is always something worth watching going on. The supporting cast, Jeff Speakman, etc., perform quite well also, and the bad guys are convincingly evil-looking. The production standards are strictly B-movie however. Special effects are okay but not great, and the settings are sort of cliched. There are several close-up shots of an asteroid that is pretty obviously a miniature, but it adds a little charm to it that way--kind of like watching an old sci-fi movie from the 50's. But understand that I don't think this movie is trying to be anything but a B-movie. All in all a standard sci-fi movie with great humor sprinkled throughout. I laughed out loud many times while watching it. It's worth spending money on, but just don't expect Oscar-winning stuff here. And now I have to go see what other movies Arye Gross has been in.

"Well, I went in to this film knowing full well it was no "Star wars" but this was extra cheezy. First of all there was no time travil, time warping...nothing to do with time but wasting it. This was not even a B-movie. Saddly, the acting and FX were not so great ether.(they [stunk]) It looks like they filmed it in an old wearhouse. If you like bombs, or hate your self, then this for you, if not stay away...far away. Run if you have to."
THE WORST MOVIE EVER!!!!!

"This movie is terrible!!! If it were possible, I would give this movie no stars at all. It's an extremely low-budget sci-fi movie. The thin plot is about a prison in space that gets taken over by its prisoners. One of the prisoners who accidentally ended up in the wrong prison, and the only remaining security guard, team up in order to escape. Everything about this movie is bad. The acting, direction, action, plot, and everything else I can possibly think of is just plain horrible. I taped this off of television for free, and I still felt [....] There is no reason to see this film at all. I truly think it is the worst movie that was ever made."

"OK, I read the reviews and still bought this movie...
Maryam D'abo is starting to show her age in this low budget Sci-fi Non-thriller. I had remembered seeing this movie somewhere but mainly bought it because I liked D'abo in some other flicks.
The best parts of the movie are the moments of 20th century comic relief provided by Ayre Gross (a Cyber thief sent to the wrong prison). Not much more I can say except wait to see it on [tv].
P.S. What the title of the movie has to do WITH the movie I am still trying to figure out(maybe I snoozed thru that part).
