I learned long ago that anything put out by "The Asylum" (such as this one) is a WORK OF TRASH. Cover art is enticing, and many of the titles are similar to familiar, or soon-to-be-released blockbusters. "The Asylum" puts out the video version of a SCAM. It looks like it may be good entertainment, but I watched one video all the way through thinking, "it's got to get better" - it didn't. I rented 2 more Asylum videos (originally not knowing they were by Asylum), certainly they can't all be that bad, but after watching only 15 minutes, I guess they can be that bad if it is by Asylum. All Asylum videos have this in common: BAD PLOT / BAD SCRIPT / BAD ACTING / BAD AUDIO BACKGROUND / BAD AUDIO RECORDING / BAD VIDEO SPLICING - - - - - just BAD, BAD, BAD. By the end of the video, you'll feel like you should have been paid to watch it. It is disappointing that this video store puts these videos on their shelves, now I ALWAYS check to see if a video is by Asylum.
There are 3 kinds of movies. 1, good movies. 2, movies so bad they're good. And 3, movies so bad they just shouldnt have been released. This movie goes beyond number 3, by leaps and bounds. From the main military guy with his constant ridiculous hand gestures and terrible acting, to the complete lack of action, to the great use of roman candles and bottle rockets as the alien weaponry. If I may quote the Comic Book Guy...WORST. MOVIE. EVER.
