MOON 44 / In the Outer Zone... You Need A Friend! - 1990
In today's space adventure, an unconventional corporate agent is given the task of shaping a group of violent criminals and technical wizards into a helicopter defense force assigned to protect a mining station on a remote moon.
This one stars Michael (LUNARCOP) Paré, Lisa (NOCTURNE) Eichhorn, Dean (MARTIANS GO HOME) Devlin, Brian (THE TERMINATOR) Thompson and Malcolm (CALIGULA) McDowell.
At a maximum security prison on Earth, a small group of inmates are chosen to join a defense detail on a distant moon. They give high fives as they exit the Hell hole.
Here we go through space on our way to good old mineral rich, Moon 44...
The troops are met by the always sweating, angry, out of control, Master Sergeant Sykes, played to the hilt by Leon Rippy.
They prepare one of the mini heckalopters for a defensive test run to get coordinated with their technical team who's guiding them through the cracks and crevasses on Moon 44!
Malcolm plays the corrupt Major Lee, he's thinking of ways to undermine the detail...
Looking the part, Brian Thompson plays Jake, head inmate tough guy pilot.
Cookie, part of the technical team, makes his own drugs and keeps the stash in his boom box. After irritating some of the tough guys, well...
Cookie slips a few capsules into dude's drink, which, turns him into a freakin' zombie!
Word is though, don't mess with the nerdish technical team!
Here's a shot of one of the helicopters so's you can see what they look like as they fly around on Moon 44.
Then, they have to protect themselves from these guys, robotic thugs that are attacking the mining machines and installations.
Remember, this movie was made in 1990. So, in the year 2038, this is what the computer graphics for the technical team look like?! What a hoot, how can anyone even tell what the Hell's going on!
Well anyway, Major Lee becomes the victim of his own device, and gets all blowed up!!
Back on Earth, our hero threatens a company big wig before giving the military proof of the sabotage going on, on old Moon 44! Tune in tomorrow where Eegah!! probably has something special to share with us, til then... Later!
