Movie Info

A lantern-jawed ray-gun hero does battle with a villainous despot intent on achieving ultimate power in his lovingly-crafted, CG-heavy homage to the low-budget B-movies of yesteryear. Captain Eager is a hero with a reputation for always seeing his mission through to the end. Called upon by the hi-tech corporation Macro Space to investigate the dubious Colonel Regamun, who has used the "Mark of Voth" to overthrow the Veritan Sector. Now, with a little help from his trusted pals Professor Moon, Scutty, and the starry-eyed Jenny, the heroic space adventurer will dust off his old bakelite rocket and blast off to fight for the downtrodden once again. But the one thing that Captain Eager doesn't realize is that it was all just a set-up, a diabolical plot by Colonel Regamun to lure the captain out into space and finally seek vengeance against the dedicated do-gooder.

Simon DaVison's loopy labour of love succeeds where other offerings of pure homage (most recently 'Grindhouse') failed.

In the end there is something rather depressing about a film willing itself to be so crappy.

The kind of quirky labour of love I feel guilty for bashing.

Times (UK)

The cheerfully weird plot and hilariously bad acting are all part of the film's self mockery, which betrays a love for the genre's cheesy roots.

Little White Lies

This kind of thing has been done before and it's been done better, too.

Total Film

Lacking gags, proper characters or any comprehensible plot, it never rises above a one-joke movie - and that joke's on us. It's humour Jim, but not as we know it.
