Sort of an "Escape From New York" in outer space, this action tale stars Guy Pearce ("Prometheus") as a government agent offered absolution from a conviction if he agrees to a dangerous assignment.
He must rescue the president's daughter (Maggie Grace), who's caught in the midst of a riot aboard an orbiting maximum security prison. Co-written and co-produced by genre staple Luc Besson, who worked with Grace on "Taken" as well, the saga also features Peter Stormare ("Fargo"). ** DVD extras: two "making-of" documentaries.
