    The flick's ultimate flaw? For a movie about space travel, it's an awfully uninspired trek.
    • 18 Metascore
    • 10 Critic Score
    After the schadenfreudian thrill of watching beautiful people humiliate themselves wears off, it has the same annihilating effect on your will to live.

    • 10 Critic Score
    It stinks. The movie is so inert -- and Madonna’s performance so starkly amateurish -- that it’s impossible to take it seriously as an allegory about class and gender.

  1. Bad, but not criminally so.
  2. If you harbor any fond feelings for the original, stay far away from this mess.

  3. A disaster: dull, predictable, at times cringe-worthy.
    • Newsweek
  4. The dialogue is inane, the acting wooden, and Roger Christian's directing choices are a lesson in sci-fi film cliché.
