galaxy-quest-01The cast of a science fiction show find themselves thrust into a real life space war.

Despite have an absolutely terrible poster and title, you can’t argue with the cast in Galaxy Quest: Sigourney Weaver, a suitably depressed and hilarious Alan Rickman, Justin Long, Sam Rockwell and headed up by Tim Allen. Unfortunately Galaxy Quest is not as good as the sum of its parts. It does have a satisfying 80’s feel to it though and would make a nice companion piece to Men In Black or Gremlins. The first half an hour is superb but when the actual action starts there is not enough room for comic maestro’s like Rickman and Rockwell to shine.
