Its such an easy premise but done quiet well. Presidents daughter os held captive on an orbiting penal colony and a convict is sent to rescue her girl his freedom.
See what I mean by easy. In fact thus doesn't have to be set ib space. It could quite happily work if it were set in.... for example.... New York or LA.
Either way its predictable throughout and some of the effect, especially in the car chase, are tripe and look to have been cobbled together by the blind.
The rip off, predictability and in areas poorly executed elements aside, its an ok film if you don't want to look into it too much.
Watched if nothing more than to hear Guy Pearce nail one liner after one liner for over an hour and a half.
I'm being beaten up by a guy called Rupert?
