newly designed spacecraft capable of travelling through time
is sent to Mars to rescue a crew previously lost. The crew
of the new vessel are sent to the wrong time, years later
than the first crew. Once they land on Mars, they discover
that it is a place where Barbarians rule. The leader of this
race is a female battle warrior named Giza who wants to take
control of the Earth ship in order to complete her plan to
steal the ancient power of the Masha. With this power, she
will gain complete control of the Siperion Empire...
still not sure whether Empire of Danger was supposed
to be a sequel to Lost on Mars or whether the writer
was trying to smooth out the cracks in the first movie. This
sequel sees a new crew attempting to rescue the old crew from
the first film, but other than that there is very little that
sets them apart.
acting is better, just, and the addition of a few nice CGI
shots add a little to the first movie, but all in all I felt
a little cheated sitting through what is really a remake.
I understand the need to revisit past storylines if you are
short of ideas, but why not experiment a little. Hell, why
not knock the whole mission to Mars thing on the head and
try a different story?
from this, rather large, complaint I found Empire of Danger
to be fairly entertaining. If you ignore the, at times, awful
acting and rather silly script then this is watchable. What
I wanted more of was the scary torturer. Now there was a woman
who through herself into the part and the effects used to
show her victim's fingernails being torn off still makes me
you've seen the first movie and really loved it, then you
might enjoy this, but personally I preferred the original.
