    SUPERNOVA is a mess. Even in it's original intended form by Walter HIll, I couldn't imagine this being any better than the countless ALIEN ripoffs of the 80s it has in common. And it even cribs from them - Peter Facinelli is clearly doing a poor job of the Klaus Kinski role from CREATURE/TITAN FIND.

    What's worse is that in no-way does it feel like a Walter HIll film. It's sad to think the director of HARD TIMES, THE DRIVER,…

    To my great surprise, I enjoyed Supernova for the undercooked, sexy-people space opera that it ended up being. There is great, unrealized potential here, but even if someone decided to do it again from scratch, there is no way they could assemble a cast as good as this one. With numerous opportunities to go way over the top, Spader (at his physical peak) and Bassett give two wonderfully restrained performances, and the visuals are quite good. Sure, it could have…

    If you're reading this then you don't need me to tell you about the complicated history of this notoriously troubled production, nor do I need to point out how the haphazard final product reveals tantalizing glimpses of what could have been, had director Walter Hill been able to complete the film as he originally envisioned it. What's most important to note here, and what is most tragic, is that buried deep within this seriously flawed movie is a great performance…

    I had heard the legends of Walter "Alan Smithee/Thomas Lee" Hill's SUPERNOVA but somehow managed to avoid it until now. As my grandmother would say, HOOLY DOOLY! Also, if you've never experienced its theatrical trailer, do yourself a favour - it's like one of those "[x] recut as a family comedy" edits, but real.

    I think I saw this when it came out? Parts felt very familiar which isn't saying much because the whole thing seems like a Frankenstein type creation. I love learning about "bad" movies. What went wrong here? Poor Walter Hill, I feel like he was trying to make his own Aliens with this.
    I do enjoy the drunk robot that is aboard a ship with "dimensional jump" but is somehow super clunky and useless, a good analogy for this film.

    The back story of how this P.O.S. got made is about 1,000x more interesting than the actual picture. As is, it would be a profound insult to Event Horizon to call this "Event Horizon Lite" but as far as plot and tone that they're trying to go for...

    Saw this in the theaters and it has stuck with me as an awful awful movie.

    There's a whole bunch of really cool ideas here but this mutant, Frankenstein's monster of a motion picture literally does not work or even make a whole lot of sense.
