Editorial Reviews

On a distant moon, there's only one way out. "Ascension" is John Krawlzik's first feature film. This is a "different kind of sci-fi movie..a brilliant marriage between production design and cinematography" (Guerilla Filmmaker Magazine). DVD special features include a fully enhanced director's cut, designer, directory, actor commentaries, behind-the-scenes "Home Movies", deleted and alternate scenes, much more.

Very entertaining movie with an incredibly poor ending. I felt like a reader of a book who finds the last five pages missing.
Good acting, good story, well done considering the obviously modest budget but there is simply no getting around the incredibly poor (non)ending. Did they run out of film stock? If shot on video did they screw up and purchase a too short video cartridge when it came time to shoot the movie? Something went wrong that is for sure. The ending pretty much crapped on the rest of the movie. Could have been a true gem but those hopes got dashed with the premature rolling of the credits.
Too bad and truly disappointing. Should throw in an expletive or two but it is too hot to get all worked up right now.
I cannot recommend renting this movie or even watching the thing for free if and when Amazon offers it for "free" for Amazon Prime members. Whatever you do do NOT purchase this movie under any circumstance.

The acting was good. Obviously low budget, but that will not distract from the story. The special effects were minimal and not really needed all that much. This movie was more of a suspenseful type.

I found the story somewhat hard to follow (what is the significance of the star jewel?). The ending was abrupt, with no clear explanations.

It's worth watching once (rent it) if you are a scifi fan.

Ascension has the look and feel of a Hollywood production with really cool effects for a low budget movie. I love the story that kept me interested until the end, with dense suspensful interaction between the characters, and I really enjoyed the format eventhough I am not a Sci-Fi fan. Well shot and well acted, you won't regret spending a good time watching it.

Boooor.....ing ! A cheaply made, poorly thought, brain numbing opener. Hard to keep awake for what I thought would be a
thrilling sci-fi movie. Amazon shouldn't be charging for this one.

No story.
No acting.
Sets and props from Home Despot.
Rent it in order to see one of the worst films made, that's how you'll get your money's worth.

This is an OK low budget sci-fi movie. The sets, props, and costumes low budget. pay atttention to the dialog for hints and clues of the movie plot. An OK movie for a lazy rainy day when you have 1 1/2 - 2 hours you want fo burn up on the sofa. Nothing of oscar award status performances by these actors...

If soap operas are your thing then find old tapes of daytime soap operas and watch them. If you want a soap opera with some bad scifi cliche contrivances mixed in, this is your series. The worst part of this show is it has a strong start; I can almost guarantee you'll enjoy the first episode and want to know what happens next. However, the predicable but good ending you expect to a movie never happens, and in episode 2 and 3 you end up with a plot that opens cliffhanger after cliffhanger for no apparent purpose at all other than a metaphorical shout out by the producer, saying "Please, please renew me so you can see what happens next". Very unsatisfying non-ending (again cliffhanger after cliffhanger), and you end up hating the characters you liked at the beginning as they do more morally questionable and just plain stupid things.

Bottom line (sorry for being vague, hard to give more info without a spoiler). It's got a plot for a 2 hour movie or 30 page short story which would be good; but the writers are trying to stretch it out to a 50 episode run on the SCIFI channel. Give it a miss.
