Editors Note
Note Stuart Gordon's fun science fiction adventure stars Dennis Hopper as space trucker John Canyon and Stephen Dorff as his sidekick and trainee Mike Pucci. Traveling through depths of space, John and Mike attempt to transport a supersecret cargo to Earth. Along the way they pick up beautiful Cindy (Debi Mazar), who agrees to marry gnarled old John if he can smuggle her to Earth so she can see her mother. The three get themselves in and out of all sorts of adventures with pirates, aliens, and the military, who all seem to want to get their hands on the secret load. The cargo itself turns out to be troublesome in its own right, and the space truckers must pull out all the stops if they are to reach Earth alive. Special effects master Greg Cannom supplies the multitudes of monsters and robots that inhabit this world, while Simon Lamont creates a great atmosphere with visonary art direction. With SPACE TRUCKERS, Gordon proves that he is one of the few directors who can take a small budget and make the film look like a $100-million blockbuster.
