Fresh: Ranks among the very best films to come from the post-Star Wars sci-fi boom.
- David Cornelius, eFilmCritic.com, Monday, February 19, 2007
Fresh: ...ultimately revealed to be an underrated and surprisingly dark Disney effort.
- David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews, Thursday, November 23, 2006
Rotten: Is let down by the weak script.
- Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews, Thursday, June 24, 2010
I saw this movie when I was a kid and I found it profoundly boring. It's another of the Star Wars wannabees, this one's from Disney too. I didn't care for it, but I may give it another try someday.

Sure, it isn't all that amazing if you pit it up against Star Wars (which everyone seemed to do), but this is more of a pure sci-fi movie anyway. It doesn't get much more hardcore than a movie about black holes and their purpose. Of course Robert Forster steals the show as the too cool for school captain and you have to love Maxamillion the robot with spinning swords of doom. Visually, this is pretty interesting. It's not too flashy, but really has the realistic backdrops when they count. This movie's only real flaw is being too short and not covering more post black hole. With that said, it is really fun and a largely unseen yet important sci-fi movie.
