Rated PG-13 · 95 minutes · 2012

Action, Science fiction, Thriller
Guy Pearce, sporting a mumbling American accent, stars as a man sentenced to prison who gets a chance to gain his freedom—if he can rescue the president’s daughter (Maggie Grace) from a space prison. It’s sort of like Escape From New York set in space, minus Kurt Russell and all of the fun. Pearce labors hard to be an action hero, but he gives a flat performance that is due in part to a flat script. Grace hasn’t done anything worthwhile since her stint on Lost. The villains—a band of prisoners released from some sort of hyper-sleep—are cartoonish characters that provide no true sense of menace.
