Review by anonymous (posted on 23-Apr-2005)

I was a young boy when I saw this movie on TV. Unfortunately, I only saw it once and couldn't remember the title, until recently when a friend of mine knew the title from my description of the plot. I remain impressed to this day as to how far ahead of its time this movie was. The mass described was in fact a breeder mass, fuel for a breeder reactor. In my opinion, the story compares to the original Alien in the cleanliness and power of the script. If there is ever a remake, I hope it is directed by the auteur, Ridley Scott. I won't comment further on the movie except to say that I'd love to have a copy for my own personal collection. Keith Salvas
