The special effects are executed nicely in this film but, unfortunately, for the most part the characters are not memorable and the plot is a downer and even slow moving for much of the middle of the film. The setting is the bleakness and loneliness of space. In this setting man’s inner evil tries hard to prevail. It doesn’t end on an upper although I won’t give the ending away. “Star Wars” it is not, although neither is it supposed to be. In addition, the strong language prevents us from awarding this movie our Dove Seal as a family film.
