  • It's got a great premise, but the handling of it is ludicrous.

    The effect of the Jupiter II lifting off the planet is sublime. Then they get into space and find their way to an abandoned prison ship where the occupants are in cryogenic freeze.

    I like this. But WHY oh why do they allow prisoners to wield weapons?! That's not very smart, but OTOH a bank of computers seems to run their penal system...

    It also seems obvious that the moment their time is up and they thaw, they're going to go out and kill again. What's the point then, if there's no rehabilitation? I'd expect this to be a life imprisonment issue...

    In short, the basic premise is good but the execution has more holes than a pound of swiss cheese.
