THE PLOT:

The wildly popular Galaxy Quest is canceled and the cast spends years hosting unimporant things like conventions and store openings. Until the day the lead premadona gets space jacked by real aliens who believes they are real space heroes and they need help.

Things get ugly when the alien invader gets rough and the actors have no clue what to do.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

I don't know or care what anyone else thinks. This is a clever premise. It's exciting, it's funny, it's cool. It's one of the best things Tim Allen has done and that's sayin' allot. So in my opinion 9 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree, the cast, the effects, the story. They all work. But there were some mild character issues in the beginning but it works themselves out. 9 STARS as well.

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ STORY (Works, and unique)
+ EXCITING AND FUNNY (It's very funny and rarely slows down.)
+ CHARACTERS (Most of the characters are likable.)
+ EFFECTS (I love the effects.)
+ TOUCHING (There are some touching moments.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- FIGHTING (The fighting in the beginning of the movie got annoying quickly, glad it didn't last.)

...AND FINALLY...

- FAN BASED (If you aren't a fan of space epic adventures, then this isn't for you.)
