Galaxis (1995)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger

Galaxis (1995) I'm sure that when they were pitching the idea for this movie to investors that it was something like 'think TERMINATOR, but instead of time-travelers they are aliens from another solar system'. At the start of the film we see rebels fighting the evil forces on a far away planet. The leader and his followers are all dressed in these odd-looking armored outfits (think Roman Legion crossed with a 1950's TV Space Show). They are trapped within their command center, waiting for the bad guy Kyla (Richard Moll) to show up. But one of the group expresses his desire to bargain with them-and when Kyla does appear, he offers to turn traitor and help him. He's killed instead. I kept on watching this scene, thinking that the actor (who played the traitor) looked really familiar-and then I realized that it's Sam Raimi! Boy, I bet he didn't put this on his resume when he was up for directing SPIDERMAN.Everyone is killed except for the leader's sister, an Amazonian named Ledera. Of course, who better than portray this role than Brigitte Neilsen. She wears the black armor, has ultra-bleached hair and way too much eye makeup-and sad to say, starting very much to look her age. Anyways, she escapes to Earth, in search of a powerful crystal which will help her win the war against Kyla.An earthman is in possession of the mysterious crystal-and she protects him as Kyla appears and tries to take it. He has this power to produce this crackling energy beam from his hands. I kept on thinking NIGHT COURT, though, everytime I saw him. Richard Moll isn't threatening!There are also two police detectives investigating the death and destruction caused by the fights. In one scene, where Ledera and the man are in jail, Kyla appears and tries to kill them, killing many policemen along the way. This scene is very reminiscent of that scene in TERMINATOR, when Arnold breaks into the police station.In the end the good guys win, Ledera tells the earthman how grateful she is and also informs him that he'll be the new keeper of the crystal. GALAXIS is an entertaining movie, but for all the wrong reasons. The script is bad, the actors horribly miscast, and the entire tone and production values make it seem like a movie made in the late 70's or early 80's--and it was made in 1995! It's also amazing that this movie was even made.
