Not as bad as all that...
12 January 2002 | by WritelySoSee all my reviews

I saw this movie totally expecting it to be unwatchable... my family rented it during our movie gag-a-thon, where we screened lousy films for a horrible sort of fun. It was very lo-fi... but we all really enjoyed it for what it was. We have a separate category around our house for this sort of film... and within that category it rates right up there with lo-fi movies like Supernova, Python, and Komodo. If you are renting 5 for 5, or if you see it come up on TV... it's not bad. Kind of "Red Dawn" meets "Independence Day" but never graduates from High School. Mark Hammil's presence and performance are redeeming qualities, but don't expect pure genius, I gave it a 5. Enjoy.
