Customer Review

on April 18, 2010
Today the SyFy channel showed this updated 4-hour version of this movie. It is not the one with Brad Johnson. I have seen that one and it is not even close to being as good as this version. I just hope that if I pre-order this one I don't get the older one. Okay, there are some actors/actresses in here whom I don't know by name. I had to go to the SyFy channel web-site to find the names. The main actors are, Alan Cumming, Tahmoh Penikett, Laura Vandervoort, Peter Wingfield and Jeananne Goossen who plays this fine Japanese female Samurai warrior. Also from the SyFy site, the DVD movie is 178 minutes long. From what I remember from the first movie, there are more female lead characters in this one. Old people come back in their prime years, around 25-35 years old and there are no children. Yes, we have Sir Richard Burton, but no Nero, thank god. There is a gay male couple and a male lip-lock is shown on TV. The alien caretakers of this world are shown as well as a conflict between factions in the alien race. And, characters come back if they are killed either by suicide or other causes, but others don't for some reason. More is learned about the aliens and about the background of the story. The Riverworld planet is said to be @ 100 times bigger than Earth and the Earth was destroyed about 6 years after our main character died. I couldn't see this as a full blown series though. Maybe a 10 hour mini-series. Yes, they could stretch this movie a little longer to put an end that makes sense. You will see when you watch this one. The story is better told than the first version. Way to go SyFy channel.
