    An obviously low budget sci fi. A bad one as well.
    The script is all messed up, the acting is horrible, the special effects are lame and the sound is dull.
    This is a great example of all the elements which make up a lousy movie.
    The video transfer is ordinary. While the movie is rendered ok, it is not very impressive visually. The "slicing wire" effect is probably the only good special effect in the movie.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is flat. The surrounds are used occasionally, but the sound is far from being enveloping.
    The menus are all static.
    The extras include a boring 5 minute look behind the scenes.
    Notice that I reviewed the region 2 version of the movie, which is identical to the region 1 version.
    Bottom line - avoid this one. It is utterly boring and not even pleasant to the eye.
