[Ben Foster, Dennis Quaid]
The offspring of Alien and Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome (and Memento), this movie seems like a straightforward "alien attack on helpless space voyagers" movie, but uses lost memory, great use of sparce flashbacks, and cool alien ambushes to weave a better telling than expected. Nothing is what it seems, or is it? I was intrigued until the very end, thinking I had the plot figured out, then having what I knew to be true to be wrong. Great script and storytelling for any sci-fi fan.
Worth: Matinee + DVD purchase
