the oh-no! DVD of the week: ‘The Second Best Science Fiction Movie Ever Made’

It says so right there on the box: “Scarier than Wall-E!”

After years of living in a utopian alien society where they both amassed tremendous power, two feuding groups of human astronauts briefly return to Earth and begin duking it out to determine who will ultimately govern their perfect planet. Blending tongue-in-cheek humor with spirited battle scenes, this low-budget sci-fi flick stars Steven George, Lamont Chambers, Michael Bassett and Stephanie Lim.

The phrase “spirited battle scenes” scares me a little: what it promises, I don’t like to think about.

Turns out, though, that I needed have worried. A quick Google ‘round for more info didn’t get me much other than a review by Adam Tyner at DVD Talk, in which he reassures me that it’s nothing more than

[e]ight actors running around some sleepy, Starbucksless suburban town for a hundred minutes and change straight.
