Solar Crisis is one of those terrifically entertaining and genuinely great science fiction films that, for whatever reason, has been snubbed by critics and viewers alike since its original 1990 release. With an outstanding male cast (it features Charlton Heston, Peter Boyle, Jack Palance, Tim Matheson and more), the very beautiful actresses Annabel Schofield and Brenda Bakke, an intriguing story about the sun's deadly energy destroying the earth (and the mission to halt such a calamity), plus some of the best-looking and most creative special effects of its era, Solar Crisis is a true sci-fi classic.
In Solar Crisis, the lovely Brenda Bakke portrays the enigmatic Claire Beeson. Working for the evil IXL Corporation, Bakke's character has only a few scenes in the movie but, nevertheless, with her striking physical appearance and campily cold demeanor, she leaves a palpable impression on the viewer.
Brenda Bakke has some pretty decent sci-fi credibility. Besides Solar Crisis, she also starred in one of the best science fiction movies of the '80s, Gunhed. Additionally, she also appeared in a first season episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, the 1994 sci-fi cheapie Terminal Voyage (aka Starquest), and various other projects.
