Description: Josh and his pals, after saving many mixed up, time-twisted worlds actually search themselves in the center of the earth, in a cavern full of mushroom people. They call themselves the 'Shrooms, and Azabeth, mistakes them for a delightful treat from her planet and takes a large bite out of one of the taller 'Shrooms, which poisons her, leaving her in a low and disoriented state. Actually it is up to Josh, Irwin, Prism, and fresh mate Porcini, the Italian 'Shroom, to search the cure to the mushroom illness and save Azabeth from certain death. The adventure won't be easy, however, because they will face many challenges within the deep, dark caverns. Nightmare Hollow, which is off-limits to all of the 'Shrooms, is an especially risky part of the caverns, and just exactly where our lovable heroes gotta adventure to. It is there that they will learn of the history of time itself and confront the most frightening foe yet...the Muncher!

TekWar Reviews:

I thought this movie, and the series as well, was better than the previous reviewer gave it credit. For being made in 1994 it presaged the film Matrix in a couple of ways; notably the term used-the "Matrix" (though it referred to various things) and the long coats worn by the stars. I thought it was technologically a cute nice production, and the sci-fi items was cute cutting edge. I thought Shatner did a better job than he otherwise is given credit for. And the sets were nicely done. All in all, it held my interest, got me involved in the stories, made me like the characters, kept me wondering how things would turn out, and had me watching the whole series. And after they were all done, it made me want they had continued the series with more episodes.So I gave it a 7.


The TekWar franchise managed to help a long series of books, comic books, TV movies, and a TV, yet I never really met anyone who professed to be an current TekWar fan. Instead from most folks I got the vague sense that the series had been solely made and supported on the strength of being associated with William Shatner, so I figured this premier TV film was as nice a method as any to see if that was fair. TekWar is stuffed to the gills with elements that are hopelessly hokey, yet it remains a curiously very watchable ninety minutes. In essence, this is a noir storyline of wrongful accusation, transplanted to the setting of a drug fight in a cyberpunkish future. The fixation on virtual reality (that's what the drug Tek amounts to) is very dated to this time when VR was the technology fad of the day, just about each element of the bright, blippy production and design is cheesy to the mission of laughable, and the dialogue is saturated with gangster-movie phraseology. But the primary storyline of a future cop wrongly convicted and pulled from cryogenic freezing years early (though why is cryogenic freezing considered an equal punishment to prison if one cannot perceive time passing?) is nice material. The budget doesn't seem to have been huge, but serendipitously that means some of the modified props have a genuine "a several years into the future" look to them. While a lot of the representations of technology look very 18994-trying-to-be-cutting edge, many of the ideas about where technology was going are now quite sound. In fact, the entire thing should have had its greatest side brought out if it were streamlined a tiny bit. Slash out some of the longer scenes that just present Tek working or present a visual representation of folks hacking the future computers, slash out some of the more involved guesswork and intrigues that detract from Jake's private story, and you should have a cute powerful SF drama with the suspense of a boy trying to clear his name and the human interest of his trying to search his lost son and the wife that betrayed him. Shatner's direction, though, if it does one thing, keeps the storyline moving despite sections that should easy bog down. He gives himself a helping but necessary role, and is quite believable stealing some scenes as a powerful, manipulative politico/businessman. The rest of the cast is mostly adequate, with Greg Evigan putting a lot of energy into his lead as Cardigan but not really handling his large emotional moments. Torii Higginson stands out as Beth Kittridge. TekWar doesn't escape the more ludicrous trappings of its status as an action-oriented TV film from 1994 and set in the future, but beyond that's there's an interesting storyline in there. No idea is large enough to create TekWar forever memorable, but the category combination of noir- detective with cyberpunk-drugland is enough to be interesting. I can see why the series would have continued, but I can also see why it didn't generate a large amount of true enthusiasm either.


OK, I was expecting the worst, when I first heard about this on the Sci-Fi channel (when it first came out in 1994, I must've been hiding under a rock or something). I mean, based on the Shatner novels, it even has Shatner in it, I was expecting total barf-o-rama.But I was pleasantly surprised.Mind you, it's *not* a classic, nor is it destined to become one. But it's now cute nice entertainment. Lots of action, lots of cool techno gadgets (the stage of 'jacking in' to the Net, a' la Neuromancer, made it all worthwhile), the acting is fairly good, and the premise is interesting. It managed to keep my attention. Hell, I can even tolerate Shatner's occasional guest appearance -- his character, Bascom, is a sort of enigma -- you never know if he is really "the nice guy", he has a LOT of secrets and things going on behind his back, etc., an interesting change from Shatner's most popular role as the "do-gooder" Captain Kirk.In summary, I wouldn't go out of my method to purchase or rent this title, but if you happen to catch it on the Sci-Fi channel (or have a mate who has it on tape, etc.) it's cute nice method of spending the evening.
