Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The idea of playing lunar golf by having the computer project where the golf ball would have gone rather than actually making the golfers walk around outside was interesting. (In theory, we could play this kind of golf today.)

Con: There isn't much of a story here. No action, no tension, almost no dialogue.
