Guy Pearce plays a cop or some type of government agent named Snow that gets put in jail for a crime he didn’t commit. But when a maximum security prison located in orbit around the Earth gets overrun by the inmates they happen to kidnap the President’s daughter, who happens to be on a humanitarian mission to the space prison. The people that put Snow away now want his help. Snow now much sneak into the prison and rescue the President’s daughter.
Seeing Guy Pearce playing a sci fi action hero was kind of weird. Almost as weird as seeing Adrien Brody in Predators. But Pierce plays it well and he can be pretty funny at times. There’s enough action in the movie to keep you entertained and some of the CG effects are just plain laughable.
