Visitor Comments

Ian Douglas: The American critics slated this movie, however I did not think it so bad and actually quite enjoyed it. It certainly does pay homage to both ''Space Odyssey'' and ''Contact'', but is not a direct rip-off of either.

Jeremie Dupont: Only one (too short) interesting scene in the entire movie. Quality of the acting makes you think that they were probably on a (very) tight schedule when making it. Such a waste when you look at the cast and the director...

Nigel Rotherham: Very enjoyable movie. Not the best I have seen (and far far away from the worst) but well worthwhile thus proving you can not always judge a movie by what the 'professional' critics have to say! I think there were many missed oportunities to make the film longer and even MORE entertaining e.g with additional scenes rather than a two second flash '... 6 months later...' Good story, good acting, good film work and thankfully NO 'shoot em up wiz bang flash' computer imagry!

Isobel Whitfield: I Loved it - In fact I can't imagine why those mindless idiots overseas have slated this movie so badly????

Dion Scher: Nice at the beginning, descending into a Disney Movie. I felt that if Star Wars could make a believable computer alien for the full movie, this movie could have done it for 10 minutes. As an ardent Sci-Fi fan, I was very dissapointed with the ending - which served one purpose, to spoil the movie as a whole.

Wade Geldenhuis: Seen movie, found it great. Thumbs up!!

Darryn Letley: I thought that this was the worst movie I have ever seen. It always seems to sidetrack off the poor storyline!!

Jaki Leipold: This is my favorite movie and you'd be crazy not to give it a ten!

Greta Sloan: This movie was so so awesome! Everyone should buy it!

Niki Triantafillou: Wonderful music! Very uplifting!
