The only thing giving this movie a 1 instead of a 0 is that Malcolm McDowell's acting is excellent. However not even he can save this film from disaster. The director must have been really distracted when he worked on this one because it is just a conglomeration of scenes that were thrown together with very little continuity - reminiscent of bad '70's movies. Even worse, both the actors and director appeared to be making it up as they went along which probably showed how bad the original script was.

It's not even worth discussing the story line although it revolves around a futuristic corporation called the Proxate Corporation who put together a crew of dispensable people to carry a dangerous cargo on an old container/slave ship to Nigeria. This ship's computer is a baby kept in a glass jar and wired into one of the crew via USB 12 or something. The company should have been called the Prostate Corporation as the entertainment value of this movie is on a par with an examination of the same name.

I honestly can't find one scene that I could say was well made and made any real sense in the context of the movie. I only watched it to the end as I had a touch of the bird flu and this movie reminded me that there were people out there who were actually worse off than me - Malcolm McDowell in particular. I won't hold this against him as he's a great actor and every great actor is entitled to one bad movie in their career and this one is a doosie.

So, unless this is the only movie your shop hires out or you're male and you're doctor isn't doing prostate examinations this week and you somehow feel this is a bad thing then give this one a really wide berth unless of course if you're really community minded, buy a copy to support Malcolm and then use it as a drink coaster.

The movie starts out interestingly enough. Building up subplots and backstories. Then, the last half hour just throws it all away with several, I guess what would be called twists, that have no indication and just come across as strange. Then the ending.... I will say it had pretty good acting (it was Malcolm McDowell and Michael Pare, then most of the side-characters were pretty good). Do not recommend..

I have to admit that I did not watch this movie because Malcolm McDowell was in it. I had never heard of Malcolm McDowell until I just looked him up on Wiki. Why look him up? I had to know who the one actor in the film was. Without knowing him, he was so obviously talented as compared to the rest of the cast, that I had to wonder what he was doing there. I still don't know why...except for the money, of course. Either he takes anything that comes along or he is one of those guys who are always in need of ready cash. At any rate, this is one of those odd things that somehow gets made and sold, which leaves you puzzled as to why it was made, and, if made, how did the actor, MM, feel about being in it. While the film has a slow dragging quality to it, I felt a certain subliminal attraction to it at times, which also left me puzzled as to why. I mention it, because whatever stimulated that response might also strike some others, who will find the movie watchable for that reason.
General recommendation: If you are a fan of McDowell, why not see it so you, too, can wonder about the reason he did it, and get a chance to see him in something in which he carries the entire load on his shoulders. If this is part of a four, six, ten movie package, and you like at least 3, 4 or 6 of the other films, this is one you might put on when you wants some help in falling asleep. If you have to pay no more than a buck or a buck and a half to see it, and you want something to watch while you do your homework or do the cross-word puzzle, this will fill the bill. If you want to see a film in which you can become interested and involved with the characters, walk on by.

Didn't realize I already had this move (as part of a double feature with The Triangle). Just rewatched it, I had forgotten how horrible a movie this was. The main actors must have really needed the money or lost a bet to have ended up staring in this film. Usually.I like 'bad' movies, but this one takes bad to a whole new level. I'd recommended skipping it, unless you really want to see for yourself if this video is as bad as people say it is.

Malcolm McDowel is great in this gutsy small picture with big ideas. Cora Fell (Hidie Von Palleske) tells a haunted mythical tale that links us to times past of pirates and ghost ships, but this is the future and its even darker. In a world where the sky burns orange under global warming even the ocean seems a desert, the ship is navigated by an ugly-cute neural-implanted 90 yr old "baby" in some cyber-knetic fluid. Everyone on this ship is mad, like nuts, some just show it earlier than later.
Michael Pare plays it nicely (he's the bad guy and McDowell the good guy), in fact they all play it straight. I'm sure the filmmakers (the team of Daniel D'or and G. Phillip Jackson, I think they're the same folks who are doing TV's Starhunter) know they are working with low cash, you can see them wink at the audience, but instead of all being toung-in-cheek, they don't cop out, they have fun with the film. Mackenzie Gray is also convincing as a nutso first mate, an explosives expert with a bad case of the nerves.
I for one also really liked Gweneth Walsh (Star Trek -where she also confronted McDowell), she's the sexy manipulator without being typically overt about it, except she was overt about looking like she was having fun.
Very nice cybernetic killing machine the ultimate fem-tek fatale I say. I'd like to see this picture with a bigger budget and tighter editing. Good movie overall.
