Director: Frant Gwo

Adrian’s Review

If you don’t mind some very dodgy physics, and equally unbelievable heroics, then sit down and enjoy the ride. There’s some great scenery and solar system views to go with the corny humour and meaningful music, a definite blockbuster of a movie, just slightly lacking in reality.

But a lot different to what the usual arthouse international film scene puts out :)
