A former government agent wrongly accused of a crime gets a shot at freedom -- if he can engineer a high-risk mission to outer space in order to rescue the president's daughter from a prison where the inmates are in control.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

To steal a line from The A-Team, Luc Besson specializes in the ridiculous. If you can't suspend disbelief going into one of his ludicrously over-the-top sci-fi/action movies, then don't bother seeing it. This one is a delight, a comedy where the casting of Guy Pearce as a gruff, Rambo-like action hero qualifies as the most plausible element. The plot is familiar, but the movie is loads of silly fun.
