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
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 ****.
I did nott actually manage to finish the film.
