Felix Vasquez Jr. Cinema Crazed It really says something that it took three writers to produce such a piece of junk. Sep 10, 2009 Full Review Mel Valentin eFilmCritic.com Rated: 3/5 Oct 18, 2008 Full Review Mark R. Leeper rec.arts.movies.reviews The film has the impact of a Sci-Fi Channel film and the writing may not even be that good. Overall this is the least satisfying of the four film adaptations to date. Rated: 4/10 Nov 11, 2005 Full Review Scott Weinberg DVDTalk.com If you just love the Alien Invasion stories, you could certainly do a whole lot worse. In fact, you probably have within the past year alone. Rated: 3/5 Sep 7, 2005 Full Review David Cornelius eFilmCritic.com As far as pulp cheapies go, this one's a delightful surprise. Rated: 4/5 Jul 16, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member This gets one star because it was in both color and stereo. Those are the only things going for it. I watched this on Redbox or Pluto or whatever FOR FREE, and still feel like I should get a refund. This makes every SYFY Channel movie look like an Oscar contender.
