Trivia

In the last fight scene David Mattey, who plays the Super Drone, was wearing a suit of armor and prosthetic appliances on his face and full colored eye contacts, the type that surround the whole front of the eye, greatly restricting your vision. To add to the difficulty the scene was filmed in the rain and at night. Mattey ended up being a better swordsman than his stunt double, who ended up sitting out the scene. See more »

Goofs

Towards the end of the movie, three red drones are hunting Tallis in a sewer. The water level is only knee deep. Tallis dives under the water's surface and the shot shows him swimming in water that is waist deep to the drones. The next shot shows Tallis coming up out of the water behind the last drone and killing it. However the water level is only knee deep. Tallis then ducks back under the water and we see a shot of him swimming around again in water that is at least waist deep. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Angel - Tallis' Rifle: 'It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity.' Albert Einstein made that statement when the steam powered locomotive was still a wonder of technology. I wonder what theory he would have had for the mess mankind has made of things now. Humankind did the best that it could most of the time, but complacency cost them. The first wave of the Drone assualt destroyed them. They never had a chance to regroup after that first devastating attack. They had ...

Oh. My. God. What a bad movie.
15 May 2007 | by dragonhawk-imdbSee all my reviews

This is the worst movie I've seen in some time. It starts off with a mildly interesting -- if rather unoriginal -- premise: Man's technology has turned against it's creator. This has been done a million times, of course, but it can still yield an entertaining action flick if done well.

This was not done well.

The script must have been painful to read. I would feel sorry for any actor asked to work with such excrement. To see Don Wilson and Katee Sackhoff, both of whom have much more potential, forced to wade through this quagmire was just sad. You know you've got script problems when the best dialog comes from a crazy, talking gun.

A plot would have been nice, too. And, no this movie doesn't have a plot. It has a premise. There's a difference. The entire movie consists of: "These are the bad guys. They shoot at us. We shoot at them." There were endless scenes of running and gunning, with a few scenes of sitting talking about the next/previous run-and-gun scene.

One major annoying aspect was that the movie couldn't seem to make up it's mind if Katee Sackhoff was supposed to be the tough, independent type or the "maiden in distress" type.

The absolutely gratuitous and completely unbelievable romantic parts were just pathetic. It was like somebody said, "Insert a romantic gesture here." Monotonous sets, and only two of them. Footage was re-used. Annoying, obvious clichés (storm troopers in masks, bad guys who cannot hit anything they shoot at, tracking device in the skull). Outright contradictions in places.

The only reason I give it 2 and not 1 is that the pyro effects and sets, while totally uninspired, were at least competently done.

The best part of this movie is the ending. Not the final scenes -- the fact that it ended.
