Movie Info

In this sci-fi adventure, an honest cop is given an assignment that will supposedly keep him out of trouble, but it soon lands him in a maelstrom of deadly danger. In the year 2150, the economic needs of most people on Earth and the surrounding galaxy are satisfied by on-line exchanges, but a sudden and dramatic wave of electronic crime creates a new demand for cash. As a result, the Federal Banking Ship USF Atlantic regularly ferries $40 billion in paper money from Earth to mining outposts on other planets. When policeman Raymond Stokes (Olivier Gruner) is framed by corrupt colleagues, he is forced to take a security assignment aboard the Atlantic, where Capt. Fenner (Bruce Weitz) and navigator Beth Sheffield (Alicia Coppola) do not go out of their way to make Stokes welcome. But what originally seemed like busy-work for Stokes turns out to be a life-and-death challenge, when a team of interstellar pirates attempts to board the Atlantic and steal their cargo, as a 600 million ton asteroid hurtles through space heading straight for the ship. Velocity Trap also stars Craig Wasson, Ken Olandt, Victor Love, and former child star Moosie Drier.

No amount of solid special effects can animate the terminally stiff Gruner.
