Moontrap: Target Earth (2017)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger
10.22.17

Moontrap: Target Earth (2017) Scout (Sarah Butler) and her boyfriend, Daniel, are investigating the mystery of a 14,000 year-old advanced civilization in the Midwest. One of their contacts discovers a buried spaceship and contacts them about it, but he's killed by an organization that the despicable Richard Kontral (Charles Shaughnessy) works for. This world-wide organization wants to keep this all a secret.

A hitman (well, hitwoman) is sent to assassinate the couple, but they escape, and make their way to the spaceship where Kontral's people are. Daniel is killed but Scout-and Kontral-are whisked away on the ship once a giant robot emerges. They find themselves on the moon and are attacked by another robot. There's also the ruins of an ancient civilization and a preserved body of one of these advanced humans.

While I was watching this I kept on thinking how this reminded me of another movie from the 80's MOONTRAP because of so many commonalities. And, well, this is indeed a weird sequel to that film, with the same director, Robert Dyke, who directed the excellent TIMEQUEST) and screenwriter, Tex Ragsdale. Of course, I had never heard about this sequel until I came across it on Amazon Prime streaming. It's a loose sequel at best, continuing some of the same story ideas. The robots look a bit more streamlined, though one of them does to Kontral the same thing that one of the robots did to Bruce Campbell in the first film-cannibalize him for spare parts. And my theory is that Scout is indeed the daughter of Grant and Mera from the first movie since she seems to be completely familiar and adept with all this ancient technology. If you're a fan of the original you should probably check this out.
