Plot

An astronaut doctor Ivan Hood and his fellow astronaut Kelly return from space after a 40 year cryogenic nap to discover the Earth has been taken over by space termites that have enslaved the human population and is forcing it to cut and process, you guessed it, wood.

Pros

First and foremost, Bruce Campbell. The man knows how to ham it up and can deliver sarcasm with great skill. There's absolutely nothing serious about this film and everyone in it knows it. This is pure camp and silliness; nothing else. And fans of the Xena TV series will be very happy to see Renee O'Conner play the doctor's fellow astronaut.

Cons

If you're not along for the ride and can't accept the fact that this movie is what it is, you will find that most everything about this film is bad from the special effects, silly storyline, aliens that can be so easily killed yet managed to maintain their rule, predictable storyline and an ending you could spot from a million miles away.

Extras

  • Bruce Campbell Biography

Recommendation

There are only two groups of people that should spend their time watching this film; die hard Bruce Campbell fans and people that just like watching silly movies. The only reason I picked up this disc is because Bruce was on the cover and he didn't disappoint even though he had almost nothing to work with. This is one of those films that most people either love or trash.
