Adam Wade: Yeah?
Jake Carpenter: Tell the Queen friend of yours that I checked the base logs up until the accident. The quantum reactor blew because of a structural weakness with the inner tubing. Probably a freak reaction of the plans, weren't off beat radiation. But no judgment, no light of death and sure as hell no fault of the engineers, male or female.

Entertaining!
12 February 2006 | by delenn-alderson2See all my reviews

I enjoyed this movie. It was a little bit "Barbarella for Girls" (not complaining!!) but entertaining and given that the script was very tongue in cheek, well acted. The special effects were a little bit strained, on a smaller budget its better to not try so hard, the results can be better and they do look like they tried too hard in places. I wasn't sure about the female lead, but I suspect it was a difficult one to play, the bad "guy" was well done...its easier to play a baddie in sci-fi because you can ham it up, and this one does. In fact there are times when there is a lot of "hamming" from all directions, which makes the film amusing..I think this is the intention. The film doesn't take itself too seriously as a result which is what makes it so entertaining. Plus there were actually some plot twists and turns which is nice is a sci-fi movie. I managed to obtain this film from Germany...my main complaint is why is this not on general release?
