Movie is 4:3 Full Frame apart from the credits section.

Release 2 released 15 December 2008 by Boulevard Entertainment Ltd, ASIN B001KTRFK8, cat no BVAR0011, EAN 5060179610115
Movie is full 2.35:1 Widescreen throughout.
Sound: Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo
Run Time: 95"52'

So the better DVD is the latest 2008 Boulevard print, its widescreen and the reason for the slightly longer run time is it has the original Spectrum Entertainment Group-Warner Bros. Pictures Presents A CineVox Release production logos at the beginning, these were omitted from the 2003 print.
It's the year 2038, large inter-galactic corporations fight against each other for control over moons, which have become the last source of minerals for Earth. The Galactic Mining Corp., which has lost a number of operations already, and whose last operation happens to be Moon 44 sends in Michael Pare as undercover agent to discover why the previously lost Moons' mining shuttles didn't return to Earth but instead vanished into space. His cover are a bunch of convicts which are 'hired' to provide Moon 44's last line of defence. Pare uncovers the plot; the convicts become a unified force and save the Moon from attack and manage to escape at the same time. That's the story in a nutshell.
Occasionally you can catch glimpses of features, Emmerich uses in his later Sci-fi movies. What I did like was the set design and some of the special effects. But apart from that, there is no real plot, the movie is packed with clichés, the hero comes over like a copy from some B-rated Western and there is not much of an ending either.
