The surreal adventures of a ray-gun hero battling his way through cardboard sets and spurious villains in his quest for the Mark of Voth.
Square-chinned Captain Eager, arrives in his wobbly bakelite rocket, brought out of mothballs by the sprawling, hi-tech corporation Macro Space. His brief is to investigate a maverick 'client' – the villainous Colonel Regamun who has taken over the Veritan Sector using the 'Mark of Voth'.
Aided by old pals Professor Moon, Scrutty and the lovelorn Jenny, Eager rockets into B Movie adventure unaware that it is all a set up. For Colonel Regamun is an enemy from the past craving revenge… and he is luring the brave yet clunky Captain to a final B Movie showdown.
Along the journey Eager learns to confront his (rubbery) monsters from the past and finally triumphs - by understanding that his enemy is human too.
Starring James Vaughan, Tamsin Greig (Green Wing, Love Soup), Mark Heap (Green Wing, Spaced), Rick Leaf (Enigma, Fifth Element) this is a great British sci-fi comedy movie with an excellent British cast.
Forget SKY CAPTAIN, this showcases wonderful use of green-screen and computer-generated environments, maybe that should read - Forget SKY CAPTAIN, this showcases the wonderful world of cardoscope and space string
