An OK Sci-Fi Adventure,
By A Customer
This review is from: Space Truckers [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
A great action packed first five minutes which sets up what looks like a cool sci-fi film. The idea of freight hauling Space Truckers is a bit of lateral thinking as if the exploration of space continues, ultimately we will still want our creature comforts.
The effects aren't bad and although not exactly plausible, a nice adaptation of the truckers diner and haulage contractor type environment found right here on good ol earth. Denis Hopper is not an obvious person for a sci-fi film, but he plays the trucking stereo type well but still looks like he would be more at home on terra firma.
All in all, not a bad little movie, the special effects are seriously out classed by nearly all sci-fi films produced these days but it's a fun little space adventure. Just don't expect to be blown away by the acting, effects or anything else really. The smattering of action through the film just keeps you going, definitely a Sunday afternoon film if you haven't got anything better to do.
