I often describe this film as having A grade special effects and a B grade action script. Truly, the dialogue is woeful. There are some scenes that break the laws of physics. Cliches abound.
It makes my favourites list though, because the ideas in it are just sooooooo cool. Necromongers running around the universe taking ‘converts’ and destroying planets = cool. The idea of the Underverse = cool. The race of Furians = cool. And we all love a good prophecy.
All that cool, not to mention some great performances and amazing visuals, make this an engaging watch.
