is the tale of a space station that is caught in the middle of an asteroid
storm and is now out of control. Space Station Avna which reminds us of Mir,
is badly built and due to financial constraints is falling apart, especially
in areas of emergency systems.
shuttle crew is sent up for two reasons, one of course to rescue the co
American/Russian crew and also to the get the secret of a prototype energy
device that is being developed within the safety of space. This development is
worth billions of dollars for both the developers and the people who would
rather see it never in production.
National Security Agency sends one of it's agents up with the shuttle whilst
another stays on Earth to figure out exactly what's going on as it rapidly
becomes obvious that not all is as it seems.
plays the part of the NSA agent who is on the ground. I'm a fan of the guy
and he does a very good job. :)
things said and done, this does feel to me like a bit of a telemovie brought
to DVD. I can recommend it definately as a great rental that the gang will
enjoy. A keeper? Not so sure about that, give it a shot and see what you
Whilst this is 16:9 it is
not a movie that will knock your socks off. There is not a hell of a lot to it
in terms of special effects, whilst at the same time there is not a great deal
to complain about either.
Sound is solid and does not
reinvent the wheel. Audio is in sync and clear and crisp.
theatrical trailer which in and of itself surprised me to think that it ever
made it to the big screen. I am aware that this sounds like condemnation,
however as enjoyable as I found it, I did find that the entire production had
"Made for Television" written all over it..
