    Re: Sci-Fi Action scripts

    David Ayer wrote a great sci-fi actioner called LAST MAN. Check it out if you can.

    ECHOES by Scott Frazier is also pretty bad-ass.

    Really? I thought God Particle was mediocre at best. Cool concept and set-up, but really poor dialogue and execution. Act 3 was a real chore to get through.

    +1

    In a similar vein, I found All You Need is Kill enjoyable. Sort of a sci-fi Groundhog Day.

    Loglines off Tracking Board. As a sidenote, I hope some of these loglines were written by interns or something and didn't go out with the actual scripts.

    Somacell - In a near-future prison environment that rehabilitates convicts using virtual reality, an investigation into a possible conspiracy leads a prison guard to suspect she may actually be on the wrong side of the system.
    God Particle - An American spacecraft floats aimlessly after a hadron-colliding experiment causes the Earth to vanish.
    Oblivion - In the future the world is decimated from an alien invasion. A drone repairman, one of the few remaining humans on Earth, finds another human who holds secrets that will put the repairman’s faith in humanity in question.
    Epsilon - When a group of robots hide out on a space station after a failed rebellion, the machines use human lab rats to be their agents, but one man finds out he is different than the rest.

    Some people think it *is* great (I don't) but it's def. worth watching. Specially if you like neo-noir.
    I agree with this a lot.

    Re: Sci-Fi Action scripts

    After reading reviews of Cloud Atlas, it sounds like it could be pretty interesting, but that it may have been better if they had not used any well-known actors. Man, three hours is a long movie if it isn't that good.

    LOL. I had precisely the same thought when I first saw the trailer. There's no attempt to explain its story. It just hurls a bunch of wacky images at us. By the time I got to the asian android, I was like, WTF am I watching?

    Looper, on the other hand, did a fantastic job -- BRAVO!

    As for great sci-fi actions, you can check out mine. It was a CONTEST WINNER (at scriptvamp).

    From the trailer. Just my initial reaction.

    From the trailer, or the script?

    It could be...it's an epic, so them's the risks.

    Apparently there are *six* storylines, so that's a lot of balls to keep in the air.
