(ca) wrote: Enjoyable movie with great production value. Eion Bailey could have a promising career; losing out to Christian Bale for the role of Batman isn't the best of luck, but it's an honor just to be considered, right?

(de) wrote: FOX decided to resurrect "The Omen" franchise with this TV movie and there is no doubt that this resurrection was unnecessary and unwanted. First off, the previous movie "The Final Conflict" was not really a great movie by any means but it was a good enough closer for the series and to now start the thing over again is beyond pointless. "Omen IV: The Awakening" is pretty much the first movie but with a evil girl named Delia (Asia Vieira) instead of evil boy, also without being nearly as well-made, interesting, scary and well acted as the previous ones. Not worth the time or the title "Omen"
(gb) wrote: In Moontrap, astronauts Walter Koenig (the great Commander Pavel Chekov from Star Trek) and Bruce Campbell (Ash from the Evil Dead trilogy) come together to become the greatest duo to have ever been filmed!!!! Seriously though, the two astronauts are working a overlong and boring space ride across the Earth when they encounter a wrecked space ship where they recover a strange pod and a 14,000 year old human astronaut. Back on Earth, Nasa is baffled but is soon enlightened when the pod reveals a small but very ferocious robot that quickly puts together additional parts to become a robotic killing machine that takes a small army to bring down. Naturally, Koenig and Campbell want to go back to the Moon to find out the origins of the 14,000 year old astronaut, which they do find out some stuff, not to mention come across an army of killer robots. Thrown in some death and gore here and some titties there and you've got yourself a bonafide late-80's gem of a sci-fi classic. Even the special effects and animatronics are fun to watch! Yeah, this movie is corny and outdated, but it still retains a lot of its fun and inventiveness. Moontrap desperately needs its own DVD release. I know I would certainly buy it! Great, low-grade film!

It felt like I was in a time machine, in terms of the movie it was good. too, It had a good plot to keep you interested.
