An interesting Sci-Fi mix.

This movie combines Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, Mad Max and Ray Harryhausen stop motion monsters. There's even a Sylvester Stallone look-a-like and a girl from Virginia with an Australian accent. While that all sounds very unoriginal, it worked out better than you would think. It's not as good as any of the movies it steals from but it's worth watching.

What goes around finds its way back again

Super low budget and a bit tongue-in-cheek, this action adventure does hold some interest. A scoundrel space pilot, Harry Trent (Matt Mitler), manages to steal a space shuttle with malfunctioning controls while watching alien battleships with a dead-on course for planet Earth. There is nothing he can really do because of the wreck he has swiped. It takes about five years before Trent can return to earth and he discovers the planet is heavily devastated by thermo-nuclear warfare and under control of the invading aliens. Trent, now a glorified hero, somehow finds enough survivors to fight for Earth's freedom. Some silly situations and lackluster special effects help salvage this movie also known as BATTLE for the LOST PLANET and also GALAXY DESTROYER. Brett Piper writes and directs. Other cast members : Joe Gentissi, Denise Coward, Bill MacGaughlin, Helen Michele Martin, Kimberly Warren and Robin Lovett.

Adnirable ambition on a threadbare budget

Rogue master thief Harry Trent (a solid and likeable portrayal by Matt Mitler) finds himself stranded in space for five years after an attempt to steal military secrets goes awry. When Trent returns to Earth he discovers that the planet has gone to hell in the wake of being invaded by nasty pig-like aliens. Writer/director Brett Piper keeps the enjoyable story moving along at a zippy pace, brings an engaging earnest sensibility along with a sharp sense of self-mocking sarcastic humor to the fun proceedings, stages the exciting action set pieces with considerable gusto, and tosses in everything from a predatory mutants to a rowdy biker gang to a few funky stop-motion animation monsters for groovy good measure. The rinky-dink (not so) special effects possess have an endearingly cut-rate charm to them. Moreover, the gorgeous Denise Coward contributes a lively turn as the feisty Dana, Joe Gentissi has a ball as blithely scrappy tyrant Mad Dog Kelly, and Helene Michele Martin impresses as two-fisted motorcycle mama Toni. Both the spirited score by Zon Vern Pyles and the thrashin' hard rock soundtrack hit the stirring spot. The scenes with Trent struggling not to go insane while isolated by himself in space are pure loopy gold. An immensely entertaining little B-flick blast.
