DON’T FEAR THE END OF THE WORLD. FEAR WHAT HAPPENS NEXT.
Many years into the future, Corporal Bower (Ben Foster) wakes up on a huge spaceship and has no idea what happened to the crew; it turns out that the Elysium harbors many deadly surprises. Director Christian Alvart had certain ambitions with this sci-fi thriller, including an ending that offers potential for some kind of continuation… but this movie as it is disappoints. If you’ve never seen Alien (1979), well, then go watch that instead because this is a totally uninspired rip-off.
2009-U.S.-Germany. 108 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by Christian Alvart. Cast: Dennis Quaid (Payton), Ben Foster (Bower), Cam Gigandet (Gallo), Antje Traue, Cung Le, Eddie Rouse.
