The 2017 sci-fi film Star Raiders
is subtitled The Adventures of Saber Raine
, which should tip you off to its pulpy tone. Saber Raine (Casper Van Dien) is a stellar adventurer of no small renown. He's hired to lead a trio of soldiers to a distant planet in order to rescue a prince and princess from captivity. Once on the planet, Saber and the soldiers discover that a bad dude named Sinjinn has been freed from prison and plans to use a new energy source to exact his long-simmering revenge on the descendants of his former jailers. The RiffTrax crew rip their way through this very recent bit of slightly derivative genre fiction as part of their summer assault on cheesy movies. You can see Star Raiders
at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 11, at the AMC Chesterfield 14 (3000 Chesterfield Mall, Chesterfield; www.fathomevents.com
). Tickets are $13.59.
