unlike several reviewers i found this quite entertaining to watch.the film is well paced,there are battles with plenty of things blown up and at times the main characters are quirky and funny.even the ending is thoughtful and all in all ninety minutes seems to rush by. a good film with a great 70s feel to it.give it a try, you wont be disappointed.four stars.

TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 30 August 2015
This 2009 sci fi adventure is set in the 29thC. Humanity [us –homo sapiens] has been replaced by the genetically modified Homo Technis or Konstrukts, who are themselves being replaced by Homo Superior who have added Nephalim DNA, but the alien Nephalim have returned to dominate all. After a genocidal ‘Battlestar Gallactica’ style attack, the last human worlds are destroyed leaving one male survivor Derasi Vorde [Jay Laisne], and a female breeder to repopulate the universe, but will they survive?
The main problem is the back story –unique as it is, is too complex and will leave many confused. The film is generally well paced, although it does slump a little about a third in, but there is plenty of action. The battles are big but the effects are very original ‘Battlestar’ or ‘Babylon 5’ with a script that tries to be humorous, a quirky crew and stroppy on board computer, and with the whole film having a 'Blakes 7' or ‘The Last Starfighter’, and 1980’s sci-fi homage feel to it, it ends up being a fun movie.
The single disc opens to 2 trailers then goes to main screen offering play, scene selection and special features [making of, forbidden saga of humanity, 2 deleted scenes, trailer and 20 photo stills from the film]. I would recommend watching only the ‘Forbidden saga…’ as it gives a timeline on human evolution into the 29thC and acts as an introduction to the introduction. Overall, the bad points are evened out by the good ones. However there is a lot of gratuitous swearing that stops this being a 12 rated ***** movie, but its entertaining with an emotional ending, scraping a ****.

This rates more than 1 star simply because of the amount of computer game quality graphics, and there are signs that someone, knowledgeable of sci fi concepts was involved in the script. Apart from those 2 items, its complete rubbish.

1 Han solo type character, with the appropriate sidekicks is chased across the stars, by baddies, they shoot cricket score, numbers, of the enemy. They even have a hand held cannon which can destroy multiple capital ships of a technologically more advanced race, with a few shots, they win against the odds, the end.

The acting is not that bad, its just that the sum of all the components, scipt, graphics, acting, is poor

I don't think something like this ever deserves five stars, but I didn't think it was quite as bad as some of the reviewers. The storyline is so so, but some of the effects and scenery are actually quite good. The acting is ok in parts, but truly awful in others. In some cases it's so bad that you actually wonder whether they are doing it on purpose to be funny. But I watched it while ironing a week's worth of shirts for work, and as a distraction for a job like that it's ok.

Peculiar racewar movie wherein humanity (ie, the 20% with White skin) are in danger from the race of Nephilim. No explanation is ever given as to what happened to the other 80% of humanity, nor do we ever get to understand the purpose of the war: Slavery, looting, ego-enhancement, etc?

Whites, here, place themselves in the position of being the victims of a genocide; while not noticing the irony of them having already done this to other humans - in historical fact and, implicitly, in this drama being so monocultural. (Scientifically, there is also in evidence here the White supremacist delusion that the sperm of White geniuses will somehow produce White genius babies.)

The special effects are decent but the story is as non-existent as the plot is derivative of Star Wars & Serenity. But, ultimately, what culture is being preserved here? Whites seem to have no other reason to exist other than existence for its own sake; survival at all costs out of fear of death - rather than love of life. Why possess the virtues that make survival possible, yet not have the values that make survival worthwhile?

Jay LAISNE does a reasonable impersonation of Harrison Ford playing Han Solo. Despite being a decidedly-lackluster and self-regarding lover, he is amusing as the last homo sapien eligible for copulation with the remaining female “Class-A Breeders” necessary to populate Mars with human beings (the Earth having been destroyed).

Poorly-written and weakly-characterized, this is a White teenage boy’s adventure that offers no substantive sense of who the creators are as people, nor who they think the audience might be - as people. As usual with Whites, there is only never-ending conflict here as a substitute for substantive drama. Is disharmony really the only mental content of the White mind?

The tone of the film is a lot like Serenity/Firefly. The script is funny (although the swearing does jar a bit), the acting is good and the space FX are a lot like old school Babylon 5 which is charming in its own way. It's a cheap and cheerful film but it's pretty good fun.

Stop go back, don't waste your time or money. This is not worth even being written about, it's simply bad in every sense... enough said.
