Reaching Critical Mass

Space: Above and Beyond- Stardust

Kate Duncan review July 2003:

The scene: Earth. Fort Puller penitentiary. Concertina wire slashes the beauty of the nighttime sky.

The time: 11:59 p.m. A clock ticks toward midnight, in a duet with the steady beat of a human heart.

The condemned: James Dark Moon (Pato Hoffmann), sentenced to die by lethal injection for the murder of a Marine officer. No one has come to mourn him – except, perhaps, the general who stands witness.

The prisoner’s last words: “I wish I could’ve added to this life instead of taken away -…

They drew upon their proud warrior tradition to brave the dense jungles of Guadalcanal and the exposed beachheads of Iwo Jima.

But Neil’s commanding officer turns out to be a gung-ho glory hound, and he may prove to be more dangerous to his unit than the Chigs.
