Space Wars: Quest For The Deepstar – Review

Kip Corman (Michael Paré) is a space adventurer on a mission with his daughter, Tayler (Sarah French) and their biggest mission is to find the Deepstar, a fabled space vessel which is said to hold riches beyond their wildest dreams.

However, another mission much closer to home for them is to find a device which can transfer the soul of a human into the body of an android after they lost their beloved wife and mother. The trouble is that Dykstra (Olivier Gruner) is also looking for the Deepstar and after Taylor gets captured and held hostage, it’s up to Kip to save the day.



Space Wars: Quest for The Deepstar is a sci-fi action adventure directed by Garo Setian and co-written by Joe Knetter. Something of a throwback as the budget for the movie is clearly not on par with the average sci-fi blockbuster, Deepstar may remind some audience members of a different time where sci-fi was more prominent.

Audiences may also be under the impression that the movie has its tongue firmly in its cheek as it’s introduced to its hero. Narrowly being snatched from the jaws of death by his daughter, Kip is a supposedly charming space hero, the likes of which haven’t been seen since Buck Rogers.

However, despite the loving homage, it seems that Deepstar not only wants to bring back the kind of movie that they just don’t make anymore, but it wants to bring back some of the old tropes and cliches as well.

What could have been a sly parody turns into something that takes itself far more seriously than it should. Taking a production with the budget of an average episode of Red Dwarf, it just lacks any originality or wit.

It feels like the script could have been written with the writer’s eyes closed and audiences looking for some silly fun will only be met with badly choreographed fight scenes and sexist stereotypes. This makes Deepstar feel like Fast and Furious in Space and it could have been so much better if there was any effort spent on the making of it.

Joel found out that he had a talent for absorbing film trivia at a young age. Ever since then he has probably watched more films than the average human being, not because he has no filter but because it’s one of the most enjoyable, fulfilling and enriching experiences that a person can have. He also has a weak spot for bad sci-fi/horror movies because he is a huge geek and doesn’t care who knows it.
