When the movie is called Space Truckers, what can you expect from it? First of all, you can bet that they will not take themselves seriously making this a fun science fiction adventure. Secondly, this is a story about ordinary people, making a living hauling stuff through emptiness of space. Anyway, this movie is a lot of fun, especially if you like space and futuristic movies, and if it happens that you also like beer, then this is a movie for you.space truckers Starring Dennis Hopper and Stephen Dorff, Space Truckers managed to pull off decent special effects and CGI with a small budget, and Debi Mazar looked quite hot. Directed by none other than Lovecraft’s own Stuart Gordon (Re-Animator, Dagon, Stuck), it has a specific and very exotic atmosphere. A space trucker in need of money is forced to accept a suspicious cargo that he needs to transport to earth. What is in a cargo you will discover if you check out this movie.

This is not a masterpiece of cinematography but it is light and entertaining enough to be interesting to watch, especially with friends and a few beers. So do not expect some profound dialogues and complicated plot, but easy to watch and follow science fiction movie. I have to mention almighty Charles Dance and his fantasy trilogy starting with Alien 3, continuing with Last Action Hero and finally ending with this gem. Of course, Charles is now Tywin Lannister, but if you want to see his full range, I recommend you check out these three movies. And you can bet that you will find the last one the most amusing one, at least when it comes to dear Charles. Enjoy.
