My Thoughts:
This is a film I found at Big Lots. I was surprised to find the Blu-ray/DVD Combo for only $3.00! The fact that it was so dirt cheap had me worried it was a real bomb. But even by just reading the overview on the back of the case I thought this could be a good companion piece to SpaceCamp. And the fact that Danny Glover is in it didn't hurt matters. I figured for only $3 it was worth a try. And I must say... I am glad I gave it a chance.... as I really did enjoy every minute of it. It is well worth the time put in to watch this film. I can see myself watching this again before too long as a double feature along with SpaceCamp. If you like SpaceCamp I urge you to give this film a chance. You won't be sorry.
