The film doesn't work as an epic, but it does ask some very interesting questions and is a fun and cheesy way to pass time. I was actually meh on most of the crew members except for Janek, David and Vickers (silly Milburn and his penis snake monster obsession!). Perversely, I found it funny when the giant hula hoop spaceship crushed Vickers and she died almost as soon as she landed on the planet. Why didn't she think of running, you know, to the side?
But old!Guy Pearce was a mistake. Totally unconvincing. Why not just get an actual old man?
