      Justin Lowe Hollywood Reporter Occupation gets the job done with a minimum of fuss and an abundance of explosive set pieces that will likely endear it to domestic fans, even if it's mostly forgettable otherwise. Jul 26, 2018 Full Review James Berardinelli ReelViews There are no characters sufficiently developed to be worth caring about and no suspense in any of the chaotic and badly choreographed battle sequences. Rated: 1/4 Jul 22, 2018 Full Review Noel Murray Los Angeles Times This is the rare action movie that's almost more exciting when the characters put down their guns and take up an argument. Jul 19, 2018 Full Review Alistair Lawrence Common Sense Media After an intriguing set up, Occupation quickly leans on cliched character types and storylines that an original setting still can't make interesting. Rated: 2/5 Jun 9, 2021 Full Review Emilie Black Cinema Crazed Occupation is a well-made sci-fi invasion romp that takes the subject and gives it a realism that works for it. Rated: 4/5 Apr 11, 2020 Full Review Andiee Paviour Nobody's Reading This But Me Before a tribe of aliens attack Earth, meanly blasting the bejesus out of everything in their path, night-time footie in a small Aussie town is as home-grown as it gets.

      Green G This is a terrible movie. Slow motion action scenes, the gratuitous use of explosives, cheesy background music: it just doesn't get any worse than this. The plot of townspeople with little to no military training saving the world from an alien invasion is preposterous. I literally feel as if I wasted 2hours of my life watching this garbage. Smh. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 12/11/23 Full Review Darren W Who doesnt love an Aussie movie? While it doesn't have the Hollywood budget it is still a good watch with a good story. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/11/23 Full Review Rea K The storyline was good, acting was good and I definitely enjoyed watching it til the end. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/14/23 Full Review Jeff F This is super low budget, Sci-Fi channel quality, forgettable blandness. Its not as badly done as an Asylum movie. But this is an obviously a direct to video movie made for 60 year old dads or foreign markets like Russia or South America. This is boring. Lacks originality. And was made solely so that people could get paid. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 09/18/23 Full Review Tina S I truly can't believe this movie has such a high audience score. This was one of the worst movies I have ever seen. It should've been a "made for TV" thing (I don't think it was even good enough for television). Everything about this movie was ridiculous. You have a woman with a pretty significant baby bump and 8 months later, the woman is STILL pregnant? A guy is in a coma, but miraculously wakes up and is ready to fight, just from someone pouring a bucket of water on him lmao! If you are looking for a serious movie about Aliens, look elsewhere. I'm laughing right now thinking about the Aliens in this movie. They were so poorly done. The ailen weapons looked like they weighed a pound, the way the humans carried them around. Oh, and of course, the aliens were called "the greys" lol. Whoever created this movie should be fired. Period. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 07/18/23 Full Review Al A Good action and interesting sub plots. Looking forward to seeing the sequel. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/10/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
