rjcmanI loved the movie. Story zero, action a zero, bad guys zero...but the main character snow is just hilarious. Guy pierce is just awesome. So good that makes the movie spectacular. But be careful besides that the movie is awful. It's a bit contradictory, but that's the truth.
FlopsPlot was super predictable and the directing was shoddy. The lazy script really needed to be better. Only about half of the one liners were funny. My boy Guy Pierce was convincing as a bad ass and looking really good, but his character just had no depth and mostly bad dialogue. It started to get really awkward when everything he says is a sarcastic joke. I like Pierce a lot and don't feel like he failed here at all, except maybe in picking the role.
OneironautLacking in a lot of ways, but a watchable weekend movie.
frankqbI expected awful. This was slightly better than awful. Guy Pearce adds much value in humour to an otherwise predictable and meaningless film.
ikkegoemikke"Ow! (INJECTS) That'll freeze the nerves in this spot for 24 hours. You want some on your mouth? "
Don't expect a cinematic masterpiece when watching this movie, but expect it to be an entertaining empty-headed action sci-fi with Guy Pearce as a purebred John McClane, in an ultra-modern prison in space, who must save the president's daughter. A clichéd kind of Musketeers story with the slogan "One for all, all for one" replaced by "One against all". A well-known and popular story with the hero fighting against a whole horde of scum, just about 500 murderers and rapists who awoke from an artificial nap, and helping a comely damsel in distress. You can safely call it "Die Hard In Space".
The story itself isn't really special and feels rather incoherent. Don't be discouraged by the terrible chase scene at the beginning of the film. That looked terribly outdated and it seemed like it came straight out some kind of C64 game. Some parts are fairly unlikely (including the wind tunnel and the disguise trick of presidential daughter which gave me a "Yeah sure" feeling) and the predictability level is immense high. But besides that, the action-part can be considered very satisfactory and particularly the characters are interesting enough to turn it into an entertaining movie to fill up the evening.
Guy "The Rover" Pearce enjoys himself here as the quite burly muscular bundle "Snow", who behaves in a rather fatalistic way and pulls every now and then a dry one-liner or sarcastic remark out of his hat, what provides for some chuckle moments. Once again the comparison with the young Bruce Willis is made quickly. The conversations between him and Maggie Grace (as Emilie Warnock) are highly entertaining at times. But especially the two criminal brothers Alex (Vincent Regan) and Hydell (Joseph Gilgun) steal the show (a kind of "Jekyll and Hyde" interpretation). Two extremely dangerous criminals with Alex as a born leader. But especially Gilgun is brilliant at times as the total crazy Hydell with a heavy English accent. He looks quite terrifying and spoils the plans of his brother over and over again (a stupid decision which Alex makes again and again).
Besides the imaginative design of a space prison where dangerous criminals are piled up (literally) to serve their sentence while being in a coma, a whole bunch of hilarious one liners and action scenes filled with crazy prisoners, in the end this is just a third-rate simple action movie with a linear storyline. A film that fits in our consumer society. Consume, digest and forget. My favorite part is the beginning of the film where a punch and a crooked cigarette are the attributes. Once again it immediately reminded me of a similar scene from "The Last Boy Scout". I assume that Bruce has done it all before.

Earring72Silly but entertaining mindless Escape from NY ripoff in space.....
ThomasFTBIncredibly dumb, but fun
EssexMutantSaved by Joseph Gilgun.
tdbGave it a chance because of Luc Besson and Guy Pearce. Terrible.
Kenneth McMahonTerrible movie. I don't think there was anything redeeming about the whole thing.
Ok, maybe Joe Gilgun.
roybaierOne of the most unlogic and implausible films i've seen.
Louis MazziniUnbelievably bad! Without a doubt one of the worst films ever.
NoizzzWhat utter shite
One thumb down doesn't cut it...
blondy2323I liked it, it's an OK sci-fi movie and Guy is easy on the eye. :P
MrDoogIt's been done before and it's been done better. Die Hard, Escape from New York etc.
You know what you're getting when you watch a film like this, silly movie but nevertheless entertaining.
Peter Stormare is a terrible actor. That is all.
