    This big budget mish-mash is almost unbelievably derivative and shockingly cheap looking.
  2. 20
    Fails chiefly because it's senseless. How it even managed to bypass the straight-to-video route boggles the mind and is a speculative fiction far more engaging than any to be found onscreen.

    Given the tainted history of Supernova, it's difficult to figure out where to place blame for either the undernourished screenplay or the moribund action.
  4. Supernova isn't so super.
  5. 17
    This poor movie is like an abandoned car without plates: Nobody wants to admit it's theirs.
  6. A perfectly enjoyable sci-fi thriller.
  7. 20
    This mildly moody SF thriller belabors standard dramatic conceits involving jealousy and sexual betrayal.
  8. 20
    Apparently fallen victim to the transparent damage-control tactics of studios in possession of perceived stinkers.
  9. Though predictable, isn't half bad.
  10. Light on originality and low on suspense though high on design and special effects.

    Just doesn't live up to its title.

    Looks and moves like a film whose vital organs were yanked before shooting commenced.

    This was a mission that should have been aborted long ago.
  14. Good actors seem plastic and plastic actors seem worse in a knockoff of every rocket-ship movie you've ever seen.

    It just goes to prove that in space, no one can hear you scream when the studio massacres your movie.

    Director Walter Hill won't take credit for Supernova... Can you blame him?

    The flick's ultimate flaw? For a movie about space travel, it's an awfully uninspired trek.

    Appears headed for a deep-space rendezvous with audience indifference.

    Really bad movie. Expected higher quality but instead i get garbage. Just a waste of time and we could watch better movies. Terrible SFX, terrible voicing, terrible story, what else? Full Review »

    It's a little dry, but definitely not worthy of the unanimous dislike pointed its way. Predictable, but nice to look at. I see signs of studio interference and a mountain of "what-could-have-been's", the twenty minutes of deleted scenes on the DVD speak volumes. Full Review »

    I went in with rather low expectations given IMDB's rating of this movie but I was pleasantly surprised; excellent visuals, genuine character development and conversation plus a few memorable scenes to boot make for a must-see sci-fi thriller. I sat through the entire movie with my eyes pretty much glued to the monitor and I enjoyed every minute of it. It starts off a bit slow but once it picks up, it just doesn't let go. Full Review »
