This unusual film caught me unexpectedly. It begins with immediate action--good. Judging by the scenery and costumes, I thought it would just be a wannabe Star Wars film. And many aspects support that verdict. Then, the story develops into a battle of wills. This film may channel Enemy Mine; but, it's also unique in its view. That makes it memorable, which isn't easy in the sci-fi genre. Erin Gray is the computer's voice, which suggests which time period of television the director enjoys. There seems to have been a lot of heart that went into this low-budget film. Well done!
