      Audience Member Just another in a long string of post-apocalyptic/dystopian Mad Max knockoffs. Still, for it's low budget it's a decent attempt. If you've got a hungering for one of these types of movies this should fill that need. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/23/21 Full Review Audience Member Some have a tender memory of this movie. I'm not one of them. First the poster. Nothing remotely like that takes place in the movie. Let's move on. While it starts out OK with a crew on a secret Canadian/US nuclear armed station doesn't do the moral thing and fires off all but one missile, the earth below is blasted as WW3 starts. These astronauts (still trying to figure out why the Doctor was a civilian), land in a world that is a cheap Mad Max rip off. Of course bad, megalomaniac's are running things and in the few months they've been in space, infected cannibals are a danger to all. This is really a poorly done, paint by numbers movie that's barely worth one view. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review delysid d This film wasn't especially good. its about a spaceship full of astronauts and nuclear bombs. they are all in space when WW3 happens and the earth gets mostly ruined. they plan on sticking it out in space but their ship is brought down by a group of rebels. so they land on earth and they have to fight the rebels for a while. then eventually they get killed off except one guy who escapes. A 12 year old might like this but i thought it was pretty dumb Rated 2 out of 5 stars 08/20/17 Full Review Audience Member One of the best B-movies around. Great concept and incredibly executed. Loved it. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member The entire budget must have went into the artwork (Poster)! Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Pretty much a run of the mill low budget eighties sci fi film. It's not horrible but I do not think I would want to watch it again. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
