Fifty years from now, the sun is dying, and mankind is dying with it. Our last hope: a spaceship and a crew of eight men and women. They carry a device which will breathe new life into the star. But deep into their voyage, out of radio contact with Earth, their mission is starting to unravel. There is an accident, a fatal mistake, and a distress beacon from a spaceship that disappeared seven years earlier. Soon the crew is fighting not only for their lives, but their sanity.
The special effects are executed nicely in this film but, unfortunately, for the most part the characters are not memorable and the plot is a downer and even slow moving for much of the middle of the film. The setting is the bleakness and loneliness of space. In this setting man’s inner evil tries hard to prevail. It doesn’t end on an upper although I won’t give the ending away. “Star Wars” it is not, although neither is it supposed to be. In addition, the strong language prevents us from awarding this movie our Dove Seal as a family film.
