| Sadly the most horrible thing i ever saw.
First of all it has to be said that i saw the movie in Italian language, so maybe the translation didn't help.

The movie jumps from a scene to another without any sense, the "deus ex machina" director solves EVERY problem the characters may have: they must find someone? next scene somehow they meet him/her/them.

They look for someone in a planet and magically they land right next to them. And this happens for EVERYTHING and anyone looking for someone/something.

The story itself has many holes, some of them very disappointing, the dialogs are sometimes absurd: "it's impossible to find any weapons!" (said by the captain 20 seconds after punching an enemy soldier and taking his rifle). The characters are absolutely flat and do not evolve : the story adds nothing to the characters development: they start and end exactly the same characters like nothing happened.

The appearing of Mr Bird is somehow ridiculous. This is a sad stain on my memory of the Captain.
