Audience Reviews for Doomsday Machine (Escape from Planet Earth)

Falling smack dab in the middle of so-bad-its-good territory, D-Machine offers a bevy of talent - all mispent - when a planned exploration of planet Venus becomes the last chance of the species after we destroy Terra Firma with the bomb. I had the most fun recognising actors from better known work.
