They seem to have skipped the part where they normally put the plot. They had a good setup, and an okay climax. . . but no actual plot. The space moped just shoots them straight through from A to Z like throwing Frodo on the back of an Eagle at Rivendell and taking him straight to Mt. Doom.
That's an excellent way to put it and a HUGE part of the problem. The fact that the actual resolution was poor made it even worse.
