You’d have thought lowbudget “stranded-on- an- alienplanet” sci- fi has nothing new to offer – there’s only so much you can do with a desert and a survival- against- local- nastiness scenario. But Aussie director Jesse O’Brien gives it a good try.
His ambitions may outstrip his budget, but for the most part Arrowhead is a well- made SF mystery about a man who’s changing into… what exactly? Surprisingly it isn’t incredibly grim either; there’s room for wit and an amusing AI too.
Extras A behind- the- scenes piece. Dave Golder
South Shields: nice at this time of year.
