Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Murky and dull."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"Light on originality and low on suspense."
‑ Lawrence Van Gelder, New York Times
"If the 20 minutes of deleted scenes on the DVD had been inserted back into the actual film, Supernova would have been much better."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
"One suspects that most of the people associated with this film will be filled with regret that they ever had anything to do with it."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
"Incomprehensible but blessedly brief."
‑ Chris Hewitt (St. Paul), St. Paul Pioneer Press
"A perfectly enjoyable sci-fi thriller."
‑ Jonathan Foreman, New York Post
"A Frankenstein monster, with more obvious story patches, post-dubbed exposition, and missing money shots than most straight-to-video fare."
‑ Michael Atkinson, Mr. Showbiz
"Hill disciples will no doubt find it a fascinating film."
‑ Chuck Rudolph, Matinee Magazine
"The script probably got sucked into a black hole."
‑ Jonathan Lewis, Gay Chicago Magazine
"This big budget mish-mash is almost unbelievably derivative and shockingly cheap looking."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
‑ Jeff Millar, Houston Chronicle
"A mission that should have been aborted long ago."
‑ John Petrakis, Chicago Tribune
"a half-baked science fiction rip-off that manages to be both excruciatingly simplistic and utterly incoherent at the same time"
‑ James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk
"Supernova meekly goes where other sci-fi flicks, such as Alien, have gone before."
‑ Randall King, Winnipeg Sun
"Most reminiscent of certain old Star Trek episodes, the especially horny ones in which Kirk spent most of his time in his quarters with some busty alien."
‑ Steven Boone, Citysearch
