Dead Fire Reviews:

"Come on, we have territories to go and folks to kill", the villain tells once. A terrible guy has got to do what a terrible guy has got to do. The film would have been better if it didn't have a easy nice versus terrible situation, but maybe scientists with various theories on how to save the globe and we wouldn't know who's right. Regrettably, "Dead Fire" has no shades of gray, it gives us a very easy plot a la Seagal's "Under Siege": terrible guys take command over a zone station, but overlook one guy who was in the Cryo Section. He gets a gun and hunts down the opponents one by one. Yawn? Not quite, it now was quick enough to hold me awake.Effects weren't bad, except that the falling d-o-w-n stage in the elevator shaft looked silly. Lots of audible explosions in airless zone as usual, and you needn't be a scientist to search loads of rubbish, from the deeply frozen folks you can wake up within a minute to the guy who screams and waves for 10 seconds in outer zone without a suit. Why can't they ever receive a several technical facts right? The cast: Colin Cunningham (went on to "Stargate") plays the hero, Monika Schnarre is his charming girlfriend. Matt Frewer gotta have watched Marlon Brando too often, he tries to enjoy the villain in a rather exotic style that is bewildering sometimes, the director could have slowed him down a bit. C Thomas Howell as Tucker is nice fun - after Tucker is unfrozen, he becomes the wrong boy in the wrong place, but at the right time. Rachel Hayward and Lucie Zednícková enjoy the terrible women perfectly and create the entire storyline more interesting. In the end, I didn't regret I watched "Dead Fire", but it's not like I feel the need to suggest it.


C. Thomas Howell could legally change his name to C Thomas Howell (The Hitcher), because that's the method it turns up on the cover of each single movie he's made since. This is probably because any movie he's made since the Hitcher hasn't been exactly what you'd call a large hit. In fact, the only movie I can recall the game of was something named The Kid, and I have no concept whether or not I've even watched that one (probably not).By 1997 things gotta have been looking especially grim for Howell (The Hitcher), because even though his ferret-like details appear on the cover of this pound store DVD, he doesn't even turn up until forty mins into the film, and even then it's as some comedy sidekick kind person. He's even testing second fiddle to Matt Frewer, who's career didn't even receive as far as something like the Hitcher. Sure, he turned up in the makeover of Dawn of the Dead but luckily only lasted five mins before a fellow cast member realised who he was and shot him.So who are these two bantam weight actors lining up behind to accumulate their cheques? I can't remember, but his character's name was Brodie, and he wasn't very nice as an action hero. When a boy leaves a room and comes back in again and you're not sure if it's the same guy, you've got a blandness problem.Dead Fire is one of them ultra-low budget sci-fi flicks from the nineties. As it cost me a pound and didn't create out that it was any type of sci-fi film messiah (like those Matrix films) I was willing to slash it as much slack as I could. It didn't commit the cardinal sin of boring me to tears and even though it tried it's hardest to be as clichéd, by-the-numbers, predictable pile of crap someone along the method someone gotta have realised this and made it as daft as possible.It's 2064 and the World has been destroyed by war, as per usual. Floating in orbit around the World is a vast model spaceship containing a Cryogenics unit just waiting for the World to sort itself out so that everyone can receive back down there and begin breeding like rabbits. The commanding officer of this ship thinks that the 'wait and see' approach is the greatest idea, but David Coulthard-jawed scientist Kendal thinks that bouncing a solar flare off of the Hubble telescope into Earth's atmosphere might just jig things up again. That's so stupid it just might work! It doesn't though, for the time being. Meanwhile Kendal's ultra-bland boyfriend Brodie has just been sent down to look after all the frozen folks by his boss, some chick whose acting skills are of the soap opera over-emphasize everything ilk, whom I instantly pegged as a traitor. Sure enough, she heads for a prison on World (now a vast desert), wastes about twenty people, and releases Maximum Derbin (Frewer), who had been jailed for previously starting a mutiny on the ship. Traitor-chick, Derbin, and some cronies all head back to the ship and managed to take it over, even though it's mile across and there's only about ten of them. To create sure the audience knows Derbin is evil, he kills quite a several people and acts like he's Alan Rickman, which, by any stretch of the imagination, he's not.Brodie, meanwhile, has type of figured out that this is all going on by being attacked by knife wielding guys and a bit of pc hacking. After tricking a terrorist into going into a cryogenic chamber and sticking a rectal probe in his mouth, he revives C Thomas Howell and heads off to waste loads of terrorists. As you can see the movie tries to walk the line of your standard terrorists take over something movie in a zone setting, but seems to continually trip over it's own feet with inane dialogue, overacting, or dodgy direction. These all turn out to be positive factors in a movie like this, however, so let's have a look at what makes this infinitely more enjoyable than something like Dragon Warrior or Matrix Revolutions.C Thomas plays a guy named Amos C Tucker, whom Derbin thinks is a particle physician type, but is in fact Amos E Tucker, the guys twin brother! I've never met a set of twins named David and David or Ursula and Ursula, but when C Thomas begins going all Darth Maul with a snooker cue on a muscleman, things aren't all that bad. I've already mentioned Maximum Headroom's diabolical acting in this one, but when he licks the underside of his girl's neck, I nearly vomited, and when he kills traitor chick and replaces her with a hero who turns evil for absolutely no reason whatsoever and licks her neck as well, I almost vomited again! I won't mention her incomprehensible accent and the recommendation of buggery that comes soon on.Your movie is in problem when the baddie shouts 'Top of the world, Ma!' just as the whole zone station explodes. Brodie and Kendal and C Thomas (along with all the frozen folks) survive, but Brodie gotta have forgotten about all the innocent awake people that were on the zone station when he decided to blow it up. .There's even more daftness that I haven't mentioned, like the inept gun wars to the non-sensical one liners and the really cheap synth score, but when you purchase a C Thomas Howell movie you shouldn't expect much, and I didn't. Things were kept ticking over well enough and although everything played out exactly how you'd expect, it was stupid and inept enough to be even more entertaining than it could be, and I'm sure the movie makers knew that anyway. Suggested if you see it for fifty pence or search it lying in the street.


If you play B-movie action and sci-fi flicks, this one is not bad. It's got some decent villains, and it certainly doesn't take itself too seriously. Importantly, I was not distracted by any overtly ridiculous plot-lines (other than our character spending two or three screen mins under supposedly deathly cold water).This review is principally provided to spotlight a tidy performance by the heretofore unknown Rachel Hayward, as Col. Alexa M. Stant. She plays the role of a colonel with an agenda with suitable campiness, and just the right edge. She was by far the most watchable hero on-screen. She managed with aplomb the caraciture role of the sexy villain who simmered and barked most of the film, with occasional emotional swings. Without question, she was the most charismatic female in the film.With Hayward's entertaining performance, and another over-the-top campiness by C. Thomas Howell, it's an enjoyable romp--presupposing, of course, an appreciation for B-movies and not over-thinking the movie.
