LOVEFiLM By Post

An explosive sci-fi action thriller that ramps up the high-energy thrills as two rival ships struggle to attain mastery of the most destructive power in the universe. In a forgotten corner of the universe, a battle is raging that that threatens our very existence. Our future lies in the hands of Scavengers. The crew of the Starship Revelator survive by keeping out of trouble, until they stumble across the mechanics of ultimate destruction. A rival ship has it in their sights, and they will stop at nothing to master a power that could destroy the universe. The fight for the future is on – a battle against oblivion. To the victor goes untold power; to the vanquished, death, devastation and the cold dark emptiness of space.

Ok going in I knew that this was a B-movie but thought Sean Patrick Flanery and Jeremy London good actors I'll give it a go. DO NOT make this mistake, for starters Jeremy London has a total screen time of at most 5 minutes and this is in the last 10 of the movie. Sean Patrick Flanery seemed to be in some kind of pain judging from the facial expressions that he pulls in this movie. The only reason I stuck with was I thought it must get better and then when it was more than 2/3s done I thought I should see how it ends.

Tech bits

The cgi is appalling
Sound is only 2.1 and not the 5.1 that is normal for this day and age.

Hope this saves some people from this rigor mortis inducing film.

This dvd is the worst I have ever purchased. The picture quality is really bad. Too dark and too difficult to see. The sound is even worse./ So much so that most of the dialogue is unintelligible. The music track blocks out the speech. Rubbish and a waste of money.

Scavengers is one of those movies that promises a lot and delivers very little. The opening credits promised a half-decent sci-fi movie but only ten minutes in I was bored with the tired monologue and half-baked ''acting''. In fact it is so bad that even with a keen eye and wide awake it was hard to follow which spaceship was which (and that was only the beginning of my misery) for the dialogue (if you can cell it that) soon turned into long, boring, nothing-to-do-with-the-''action'' banter which half the time was hard to understand and worse, often had nothing to do with the 'story'. But by far my least favorite bit of it was the fact that it was made on a budget which meant the outfitters had wasted no expense at all on the egg-carton 'sets' and cramped, 'lets film it from another angle so the audience won't realize it is the same room painted another color' interiors of the spaceships.

It soon became obvious that the hero and villain spaceship interiors were one and the same, except one was re-painted black. And when the characters do eventually drop in on a 'space bar' the room is about fifteen feet by fifteen feet, basically somebody's basement with a couple of chairs and extra's sitting in them whispering to each other to make it look busy. The 'fight sequence' in the bar consisted of the only half-decent female 'actor' (who plays a sociopath berserker who hates guns) walking in, threatening somebody and then everyone else in the room points guns at the camera. We then see them all dead or dying and her companion say, and I quote, "Wow, I've never seen anyone fight like that before!" Funny, I was thinking the same thing - there was NO bar-room brawl scene as they were too cheap to film one and simply implied it instead.

Started OK, but nothing seemed to change, they stayed in space talking, warped a bit talking, they shot some cannons talking, then did it all over again the lead guy spent all of his time growling incomprehensibly like some old Texan cowboy into his fist and that's it!
