Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: With this kind of epic ineptitude -- hell, the flick is set in the year 3000 -- you go for "worst of the millennium." – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, May 28, 2013

Rotten: The worst movie in living memory. – Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine, May 28, 2013

Rotten: Pretty much the Showgirls of sci-fi shoot-'em-ups. – Dennis Harvey, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: The director is Roger Christian, who, if early audience response is anything to go by, would do well to flee the country under an assumed name. – Anthony Lane, New Yorker, May 28, 2013

this movie is just awful. worst movie ever made.


Scientology and movies don't mix! Don't waste your money on this - go and get a copy of Showgirls instead!

So bad it's still bad.

Some bad movies are so bad they are good, but this is just bad.
