Ferocious Planet is a science-fiction movie released in 2011, directed by Billy O'Brien. The movie stars Joe Flanigan, Sam O'Mahony, and John Rhys-Davies, alongside Catherine Walker, Dagmar Döring, and Ivo Nandi. The story of Ferocious Planet revolves around a group of astronauts who venture on a mission through a wormhole to explore a distant planet. The mission is named "Project Hercules," and it aims to find a planet that could sustain human life. The journey is expected to last for only a few hours, but things take an unexpected turn when they realize they are on a different planet that is full of deadly creatures.

The movie starts with Dr. Karen Fast (Catherine Walker), the lead scientist of Project Hercules, briefing the team about the mission. The team consists of Joe (Joe Flanigan), the team leader, Lisa (Dagmar Döring), an astronomer, and Eric (Sam O'Mahony), a communications expert. The team boards a spacecraft and ventures into the wormhole, but as soon as they exit, they realize that they have arrived on a different planet.

The planet has a harsh environment, and the team struggles to adapt to the new surroundings. They also discover that the planet's atmosphere is poisonous, and they need to stay indoors to survive. The team decides to explore the planet on foot to find a way back home. Soon, they realize that they are not alone on the planet.

The first creature that they encounter is a giant spider-like creature that is incredibly fast and deadly. They manage to escape, but not before Joe is bitten. The team then discovers that the planet is inhabited by various species of deadly creatures that are all out to get them.

The team keeps on running and fighting their way through the planet, encountering more deadly creatures like flying reptiles, giant lizards, and vicious plant-like creatures. They all have a nightmare of a time trying to get back to their spacecraft and return home.

Meanwhile, back on Earth, the officials in charge of the mission are frantically trying to contact the team, but they receive no response. They decide to launch a rescue mission to find their missing team.

As the team traverses the planet, they discover that the planet has a unique characteristic. The planet seems to be a reflection of their thoughts, and the creatures they face are projections of their fears. The creatures become more and more sinister as they delve deeper into their own psyches. As they continue to fight for their survival, the team also has to face their own demons.

John Rhys-Davies stars in the movie as the voice of the spacecraft's artificial intelligence, which becomes the team's only lifeline with earth. The spacecraft's AI helps the team navigate through the planet, but it becomes clear that it has its own agenda.

Ferocious Planet is an entertaining sci-fi movie with a great premise that manages to deliver on its promise.
