Somewhen in the future: Kip (Michael Paré) and his daughter Taylor (Sarah French) travel the galaxies as scavengers, hoping to eventually make enough money to bring his wife/her mother back to life (the technology's there, it's just darn expensive). But somehow their goal seems to always be out of reach - until they run across Jackie (Anahit Setian) on an otherwise abandoned space station who tells them she knows the location of the Deepstar, a spaceship that has crashed on a planet unknown two decades ago that was to have carried the most valuable of treasures - and nobody has found her since, but Jackie has located her. And since all she asks for the information about the whereabouts is passage, Kip and Taylor are quick to seal a deal with her. Problem is, they're not the only one after the Deepstar, there's also Dykstra (Olivier Gruner) and his crew (Tyler Gallant, Rachele Brooke Smith, Jed Rowen) after her, and they're not exactly good people, and they try time and again to kill Kip and succeed in kidnapping Taylor. Thing is, does the treasure, the nature of which nobody's really sure of, even want/deserve to be found ...

Sadie Katz plays Kip's ruthless nemesis who tries (and fails) to kill him time and again.

 

Now quite frankly, it really doesn't take a lot to notice the title of this film is quite similar to Star Wars, and this both does and does not do Space Wars: Quest for the Deepstar justice, inasmuch as while it's certainly a space opera (a genre the George Lucas franchise has by no means invented) it's not so much reminiscent of any of the Star Wars movies themselves but very much of the Star Wars-knock offs from the late 1970s and 1980s - and I don't at all mean this in a bad way, just saying it's a throwback film to when action is space was en vogue with the B-movie crowd. And frankly, Space Wars: Quest for the Deepstar does a pretty good job when it comes to entertainment. Sure, the story's a bit on the silly side, but it sure enough is well-paced, filled with (self-)irony, and the effect work ranges from pretty decent to downright awesome, especially for a low budget movie. And while this movie's admittedly not the re-invention of the wheel, it's also plenty fun to watch for sure.
