(PG-13) ★☆☆☆☆

This deliriously cruddy sci-fi flick is barely watchable. In 2079, Snow (Guy Pearce), an ex-CIA operative, gets strong-armed into a trip to a space station prison that’s been taken over by its inmates. Oh, and the president’s daughter (Maggie Grace) needs rescuing. There’s a great deal of point-blank handgun killings, monotonous pacing, bewildering editing and overall terribleness. It’s as if the Mystery Science Theater 3000 guys paid the filmmakers to make this film for heckling purposes.
