There was a bit, in terms of why they're putting the prisoners up there, and some of the attack shuttles and space station stuff. But, pretty much, my initial post ("Escape From New York" in space, with the Pres's daughter in lieu of the Pres) pretty much summed it up. They tagged a bit of a spy story around it to try to give Guy Pearce's character some depth and motivation, that's about it. It wasn't awful--it's worth seeing, I think--but you're not going to say, "Boy, I can't wait to buy that Blu-Ray and watch it over and over!"
