A great idea is wasted in an overblown and underwritten sci-fi full of stereotypes and bog-standard plot devices. Even the brief and infrequent action sequences fail to ignite any excitement at all. Without Richard Dean Anderson's post modern wisecracking the whole idea just seems self important and dull.
