This not-so-fast paced actioner is worthwhile watching if only for the Alien inspired sets and costumes.

The early-going intrigue maintains interest, but once the film starts shamelessly riffing on High Noon, all the excitement fritters away.

The failure of director-writer Peter Hyams to put any weight whatever behind the moral issues (crude as they are) makes this merely violent nonsense.

Hyams has directed a few sci-fi action thrillers including Capricorn One, Sudden Death, Timecop and 2010. This isn't his best.

Because both dialogue and direction are none too exciting, one's tired eyes wander endlessly over the space base sets.

Connery and Boyle are fine, but the wholesale lifting of High Noon's plot certainly undermines interest.

While there are several mile-wide plot holes and one key under-developed main character, the film emerges as a tight, intriguing old-fashioned drama that gives audiences a hero worth rooting for.

This harrowing sci-fi flick has mellowed with age over the years, but Sean Connery's performance is still good, and the first couple of acts are still quite engaging.

...not a great movie but a reliable one, with another solid performance from Sean Connery, who always makes a staunch, stalwart protagonist of truly heroic proportions.
