Twinks From Space
It's 2038 the planet earth is out of national resources, but there's a
whole asteroid belt of deserted, lifeless rocks from which all the
world's resources can be drawn. But the planet earth has also split
into various corporations instead of nations who are fighting for
control of those asteroids. In fact one company is down to only one
asteroid, the last stand will be made on Moon 44.
You know if you're expecting a serious study on earth's dwindling
resources and what I personally think will eventually happen, the strip
mining of dead worlds for resources, Moon 44 ain't the film for you.
What we did get in between the giggles and the video game special
effects was one of the great homo-erotic science fiction films of all
The defense craft are these helicopter type ships that only crazy
people like prisoners will fly in exchange for commutation of sentence.
They are navigated from the asteroid by these computer geek types.
Pilot and navigator of necessity have to work together to fly these
things. But the brawny prisoners and they are all brawny believe me
have other ideas about bonding with these twinks from space.
Michael Pare is an internal affairs agent for the company going in
undercover as a prisoner. Dean Devlin is the head twink, you don't
really think he would be teamed with a hardened lifer did you?
Actors trained in the classics like Roscoe Lee Browne and Malcolm
McDowell do the lines like they pearls from the Bard and they do it
well. Might be some of the best acting these two gentlemen have ever
done on screen.
We never see these villains, all we know is that they're not aliens
just greedier humans than who Pare is working for. Or who is exactly
working for who?
If you care to watch and get a few laughs, tune this monstrosity in..
A underrated classic B si-fi.
I like to compare apples to apples,this is a B movie,so... compared to
B movies,this one is great.Michael Pare is almost always a very
actor,in this movie he is at the top of form,cool story,cool guy,and
the top acting(thats what makes a great B movie). Even my wife liked
