Firstly, if you only see one Sci-Fi film this year make sure it's this one !! The acting is great, the story is fantastic and the effects are quite simply out of this world ! The story is based around a crew that have crashed on a planet with three suns. This seems bad enough (a bit hot to say the least), however when the eclipse occurs - once every twenty or so years - night is not what you want to experience. The planet is host to some very nasty, very large, very hungry aliens. The cast includes a convict who has had his eyes modified so he can easily see in the dark - which is quite useful, he is also played by Vin Diesel so he is big enough to look after himself and the rest of the crew. The crew however need to get over the fact he is a convicted murderer ! The story is full of tension and the pace of the film - once the suns have gone in - is very fast. A must for anyone who likes a good Sci-Fi/Horror tale.
