This is an enjoyable sci-fi action thriller with gorgeous and incredibly sexy Wendy Crewson (she has beautiful features and eyes) in the "Sigourney Weaver" role as our pistol-packing heroine. Patrick Bergin does not have much to do here since it's the female lead's film. Peter Outerbridge is excellent as the villain Nash who is devilishly charming and handsome. His character is both funny and psychotic. Nash's sidekicks were forgettable. The teenage daughter really got on my nerves when she was frightened - too much crying, etc. The special effects were pretty good, but the set design could have been better. Overall, this picture is all about Crewson. She's a wonderful actress and I've only seen her in dramatic pictures such as "Suddenly Naked" and movies on Lifetime TV. She is one helluva great actress and did I mention - super gorgeous too. It was refreshing to see her take command and hunt down the bad guys one by one. Crewson can take on Sigourney Weaver any day in my book.

Hi ! I'll drone on a little while, or you can let my Review Title sum things up !!
I'd first like to say, apart from Wendy Crewson and Michelle Beaudoinne as two of Deep Space's Most Heavenly Bodies, ESCAPE VELOCITY shines as pleasant, sit-back / surrender-to-Suspension-of-Disbelief Happy Happy Joy Joy.
Sure, here -are- a heap o' lil' hysterical idiosyncracies to giggle over, but ESCAPE VELOCITY, as before I've noted, is a FUN flick you can leave your Cerebellum OFF-hook for. So, curl up next to your Sweetie and indulge each other in her favorite snacks and beverages, Men !!
Beautifully TRUE to Tradition, ESCAPE VELOCITY boasts a Pistol Packin' Space Mama holding off the Baddies *singlehandedly* whilst her Nubile, Goodie, At-LAST-I-Can-Drink! Daughter take turns fritzing out between bombs and bullets, Carol Lynley / POSEIDON ADVENTURE style.
Where, for you uninitiated, is Our Loving But Tough Step Dad / Commander in the meantime ? Why, CALMLY - and I mean, CALMLY - removing some outerwear so as to most -comfortably- tank-up the (Archaic) Fighter Craft rapidly falling into Gravity Well Hell. ....
... there's even a "Wet T-shirt Contest" ...... but you must bum or buy ESCAPE VELOCITY to see WHO the Lucky Lady (or is that us Men ?) is !!
This is DEFINITELY the Kind of Movie you *and* your Girl can get into, Age Irrelative. Frilly FUN -- NO Final Exam !!

4 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Peter on December 23, 2002
Format: DVD
From glancing at the film summary, the general setting of Escape Velocity- an enormous, scarcely populated Cygnus-style space station precariously close to a star on the verge of transforming into a supernova apparently equipped with some extraordinary anti-gravity device to safeguard its perilous position- invites comparisons to an updated version of the Black Hole. However, it becomes increasingly clear during the film that Escape Velocity is much closer to an intergalactic version of the thriller Dead Calm. Notwithstanding the obvious discrepancies in setting, there are numerous similarities between these films: both feature a homicidal killer unsuspectingly picked up (and in the case of Escape Velocity, awoken from hibernation) by a small crew of good samaritans, who briefly befriends his gracious benefactors before abruptly turning upon them in order to utilize the capacities offered by their ship. Likewise, the maniac expels the husband or male patriarch (Sam Neill and Patrick Bergin in each film respectively) and terrorizes the wife (and her daughter in Escape Velocity) in the meantime until the captain returns and with uxorial assistance, kills the heartless assailant.
Apart from these divergent details and sequences, overall Escape Velocity and Dead Calm are remarkably alike- unfortunately except in terms of production and execution. Whereas the latter film is tautly made and edited, Event Velocity plods in pacing and suffers from abrupt and clumsily executed plot changes.
Doubtless the most awkward moment of Escape Velocity is where the assailant, Nash (Peter Outerbridge) having failed to apprehend Billie (Wendy Crewson) and Ronnie (Michelle Baudoin), implausibly proceeds to resurrect his minions, who, like himself, have also been in hibernation for fifteen years.
