| Not Bad. Good FX. Good Acting. Entertaining
This one isn't Movie Theatre grade by any measure. But it aims a little higher than pure "Made-for-TV" or "Direct-to-DVD" offerings.

Mercenary/Rescue mission answers a distress signal coming from a previously thought lost planet/colony from the previous 'Screamer' chapters. They land and attempt to survive while unraveling the aftermath of that world's little "civil war".

Many reviewers will give a thumbs down for the predictability-- but seriously, there's nothing wrong with formula if it entertains. And I think we should give the film makers some credit for not immediately letting the viewer clue in on the plot twist until late into the movie.

The FXs were believable and well done, and the space ship was cool. Even the Uniforms were neat. There's gore, but it was measured and not ridiculously over the top.

This movie is good for a slow Saturday afternoon with munchies. And no- you don't need to see the previous 'Screamer' Installments to understand or enjoy this one.

My main quibble-- Why are some Sci-Fi movies makers always defaulting to a Shot of Mars and the Valles Marineris when they need to posit an alien world orbiting another star? Jeez-- photoshop yer own planet, for chrissakes!
