You can't defensibly say that French writer-producer Luc Besson comes up with the most original action movie ideas on the planet (see for reference: From Paris With Love, The Transporter, District B13). In this sci-fi action flick, for example, a tough ex-con (Guy Pearce) is hired to rescue the president's daughter from an orbital prison run by violent inmates. Yup, it's Escape From New York ... in spaaaace. Still, stuff blows up, bad guys are punched, and everything moves fast enough that you hardly have time to snicker at the colossal silliness of it all. 95 minutes PG-13.
