I watched this at home on DVD from my public library, my wife skipped.I was a bit concerned by the somewhat low IMDb rating for this movie but had hopes based on the brief description. I have always been a Sci-Fi fan, especially for stories set in the future and involving space travel. After watching it the rating seems about right, maybe even a bit high.The story starts good showing an 11-yr-old girl in a space suit in a large mine cavern. She is the child, she is on Osiris, she will need to be rescued. The story ends with her being rescued but the vast middle, even though it is barely over 90 minutes, seems long because it is mostly uninteresting. We see a futuristic bus traveling through wasteland. We see fights in a prison. We see rough-looking people getting high in a bar and threatening others. So when the last scenes came my mind had pretty much turned itself off to the story. I watched the DVD extras, I was impressed by the team that is responsible for coming up with the story and filming it in Australia, their intentions were admirable but they just were not able to put together something that is really good and entertaining. Just mediocre.


This movie would have been a great movie if it weren't for the worst monsters ever. The monsters were human test subjects that looked like the turned into super snapping turtles. The back and forth chapters were interesting because it gave you more knowledge into Sy's story, and it showed why he was there on Osiris. The main reason this movie gets a 5 instead of an 8 or 9 is because of the "plot twist" at the end. Sy gets attacked by the monster and starts to transform into one, but he ask Indi to give him something sharp to kill himself. She doesn't do it, and it cuts to another backstory in Sy's life. This was my favorite part because it showed why he was in prison, and that he was good loving man who lost his family but made a very wrong decision. Then the bad part happens. After the planet had been wiped clean, two explorers search the planet to find indi and creature that turns out to be Sy... really? Sy turned into one of the crazy monster soccer who had been killing people the entire movie? But instead of being crazy, he is guard dog for Indi... should've let him die or survive. One or the other. I still hate how terrible the monsters were. Made the movie so much less interesting.


The ending was super cheesy and not written well, mostly the child's lines, but overall it was enjoyable. It looked good and was acted well enough


Quite interesting and solid story line, very good acting and surprisingly convincing CGI. If not for the way monsters look and few other technological flops it would have been an excellent movie. Totally underrated (especially when compared to latest revision of Alien)!
