"Ow! (INJECTS) That'll freeze the nerves in this spot for 24 hours. You want some on your mouth? "
Don't expect a cinematic masterpiece when watching this movie, but expect it to be an entertaining empty-headed action sci-fi with Guy Pearce as a purebred John McClane, in an ultra-modern prison in space, who must save the president's daughter. A clichéd kind of Musketeers story with the slogan "One for all, all for one" replaced by "One against all". A well-known and popular story with the hero fighting against a whole horde of scum, just about 500 murderers and rapists who awoke from an artificial nap, and helping a comely damsel in distress.

A prisoner, Snow (played by Guy Pearce) risks his life and limb to save the president’s daughter Emilie (Taken’s Maggie Grace), from MS: One, a maximum security prison filled with rapists, murderers, and other nasty people! Why??? Because he is falsely convicted and his one chance at obtaining freedom lies in finding his partner Mace (Tim Plester) who just so happens to be locked up on MS: One.
The movie starts out as a spy thriller, at least looks like it, but soon turns into a mixture of Escape from New York and Die Hard in space. Maggie Grace plays the damsel in distress on a humanitarian mission who’s in constant need of taking care of by our reluctant wisecracking hero but Snow’s sarcastic, flippant attitude hides his heart of gold and it is inevitable that the sparks will fly …
