This review is from: Star Wreck [DVD] (DVD)
If you want to buy another safe, predictable big budget blockbuster then fair enough, look elsewhere. If you are open minded and want to be inspired by this epic, 7 year labor of love by a dedicated team of Finnish amateur film makers then stick around! I have dabbled with a bit of CGI and put the odd holiday DVD together. If you have the slightest idea of the effort involved in getting anything on screen you will be blown away with what has been achieved. This film hasn't made it to a commercially available DVD without good reason. If you watch the film with goodwill and ride over the rough edges and moments that lack pace, you will see some completely original and laugh-out-loud sci-fi comedy moments and effects sequences of a scale and complexity that square up to their multi-million dollar rivals.

The negative reviews of this film appear to have been written by people with unrealistic expectations who didn't stop to understand what they were buying, not least that yes, this film was made in the Finnish language! What genuine film lover prefers to watch a dubbed version of a film anyway? I bought this film because I knew it would do things Hollywood never would, and I wasn't disappointed!
