Kickstart and his crew, Commander Dwarf and Commander Info, find themselves stranded on 21st Century Earth after a previous adventure to save the planet from hostile aliens. Life is not good and Pirk s daily routine consists of stuffing his face at the local fast food restaurant and trying to convince the ladies that he is, in fact, an intergalactic space hero form the future. As the prospects for humanity's conquest of space look increasingly bleaker, Pirk comes up with a questionable plan to save mankind's future... Created by an ingenious band of die-hard Star Trek fans this terrific sci-fi comedy will have you gripped all the way through to its stunning conclusion! Wreck on!

Star Wreck manages all of the above, and as an indie movie, to boot. The special effects are completely state of the art and would do in any commercial movie of today. Every scene is lovingly crafted to as near perfection as the shoestring budget would allow. Where the homeknit quality does show, it feels mostly like homage to the cardboard and styrofoam props of ST:TOS and Babylon 5.
The criticism that could be fairly given is that the plot and the characterization suffer from a lack of a professional writer in the crew. Even then, the pacing of the movie is good, the jokes, while boyish, are on the spot, and all in all the movie leaves all the other sci-fi parodies out there completely in the dust. A definite mood-lifter for the viewer, and the story of how the movie was made is worth seeing in itself.
I would recommend for sci-fi fans and possibly non sci-fi fans as it doesn't require you to get too absorbed in it to bee able to follow
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!
If you are a Star Trek or Babylon 5 fan you may get a little more out of it with the funny references to each sci-fi franchise, if not then you can watch either series to find out.
The subtitles add that extra something to the whole thing with some funny translation like "worm holes" coming across as "maggot holes", "twinklers" and "light balls" to add to the mix!
Let's hope that the sequel due apparently in 2011 sometime is as good...
As a die hard scifi fan I thought this would be terrible. I think it was actually better than quite a few major productions. The special effects definately give a lot of major productions a run for there money.
If you have a sense of humour, loved films like galaxy quest, babylon 5 and startrek, you will love this.
Was OK at the start, but once they got into space it really took off.
While the scenes with people show their low budget origins, the space scenes are excellent (better than Babylon 5's) - considering that they didn't come from a major studio I was astonished.
Generally quite funny.
In my opinion wouldn't be quite so good for someone who wasn't a B5 & Star Trek fan.
One reviewer mentions how an incredible amount of bear must have been involved in the making of the film and they are right but not for the wrong reasons. The light hearted fun (and use of `Light beer' in the `Light balls') coupled with watching the film in a foreign language (with UK subtitles) makes for a crazy night in.
I can understand that for some viewers the unrefined humour wont appeal to them but for anyone who has seen at least one naked gun film (and liked it) should watch this to!
