Goofs

The "space suits" worn in the last few scenes of the film are in fact standard hazmat/biohazard suits. They provide filtered air, but are not pressurized. This can be clearly seen in the film, as the suits' skins are wrinkled and closely follow the contours of the actors' bodies, and are not "puffed out," as they would be if internally pressurized.

Quotes

Murdoch: Well just settle down and relax, while I finish telling you the Armstrong story.
Lucas: OK
Murdoch: Well His first words were 'Congratulations Mr. Gorsky.'
Lucas: Right
Murdoch: Well a lot of theories popped up about what Armstrong meant, like maybe he saw something up here that proved the Russians made it first or that he was some kind of double agent sending a message to Moscow. Finally he got sick of hearing about it so he decides to set the record straight. Turns out when he was a kid, Armstrong lived next door to an ...

A Mediocre Movie
1 June 2012 | by (Arizona USA) – See all my reviews

While not the worst Sci-Fi movie I've ever seen it definitely isn't good. Special effects are bad which is to be expected with a movie of this caliber. The acting is decent for a B-movie which thankfully prevents this film from being totally unwatchable. The plot isn't particularly engaging, just a b-movie rehash of a prisoner escape attempt with a few other movie clichés thrown in. The whole movie reeks of the 80s, which is weird considering it came out in 1997. It's more entertaining than watching paint dry but I wouldn't put it on my list of maybe watch again movies. If you have absolutely nothing else going on and you're bored out of the gourd there are a lot worst things to watch.
