This is a production by the people who are behind “Honest Trailers” which was just an average documentary centered on the 1999 film: “Galaxy Quest”. The full movie is very enjoyable to watch online and you can free download the full movie. This documentary was directed by Jack Bennett, to be honest this could have been perfect for a DVD extra. It stars Tim Allen, Greg Berlanti, Elizabeth Cantillon and others behind the film’s production.
For a theatrical debut, it didn’t really offer anything new, on what could be probably found on fan blogs, channels and websites. But if you want to see a big format screening of predictable actor/director interviews then this is for you. If you are a “Honest Trailers” groupie, a plus! There could of been a more interesting documentary with more behind the scenes and anecdotes Again, it more feels of a DVD extra, nothing really special as far as a just being a formulaic narrative.
Since there has been prior documentaries (pioneering ones at that) on the “comic con”, “geek” and “Trek” communities like 1998’s “Trekkies”, even the recent documentary on “Deep Nine Space” was a bit more challenging. With these documentaries on Star trek-influenced shows, it’s a shame, considering how pioneering “Galaxy Quest” (as a fictional film inspired by Trekkies) was deserves a more original production in documentary-making approaches. Maybe this was only made and released theatrically to see if the fans can generate a franchise reboot?
