A former government agent, Snow (Guy Pearce) who has been falsely convicted of a crime has been offered his freedom in return for heading into space to a prison colony on a secret mission. It seems the president’s daughter has been abducted by the rebel prisoners, and is being held as a prisoner. Snow has to go fight this most deadly enemy and get her back safely.

Think “Rambo in Space”. This film didn’t ring my chimes. It didn’t seem to server any great purpose. Prisoner’s revolt, government is too scared to deal with them, so they take some guy who was falsely arrested and send him out to do their dirty work. He is a bad-ass and kicks a lot of but, burns a lot of bullets, and does the hero thing. Ho-hum. This has been done over and over again. There just isn’t anything new or interesting at all in this film. It could be an incredibly violent and bloody battle movie, but to get the PG-13 they cleaned all that up quite a bit. As a result, it’s just not very interesting at all. Mostly it’s just hero Rambo-like stuff for scene after scene after scene. Guy Pearce, although he seems like a pretty decent guy, does not have the charisma to carry this off, and this film just sat there and smoldered for an hour and a half with not flame. I just didn’t get into it. I’ve read reviews of people who liked it, so it might be up someone’s alley, but not mine. I felt it was a waste of my time, and I didn’t really get into it at all.
