I know there are past posts about this movie, in fact some of the posts that I read made me take back my unopened copy to get my money back. Well I finally broke down and rented it last night. And I have to say that I liked it. That is I liked laughing at what a piece of crap movie John Carpenter put out. Was he serious with this movie? I was thinking it would be something like Pitch Black slash Starship troopers type of film. Not even close. I really hated this film. Of movies I have seen, this has got to be on the top 10 list of all time worst movies! The plot was terrible, acting=terrible, special effects=terrible. Everything about the film was terrible. The buildings and props in the movie looked like spray painted cardboard boxes. I read one post that said it totally looked like a very small movie set. It did. It looked like it was filmed in someones basement. Space was a black screen behind the props. I don't want to give away any of the movie, but if you see it you won't care anyway. There is a part where Ice Cube is on a moving train and it was so evident that the train was not moving and that the screen behind it was. I have seen better special effects on a 2am USA sci-fi tv show. This movie looks like it was filmed in 1950. Anyway, it sucks, stay away!
