I get the Neptune part
20 August 2004 | by (Queens, NY) – See all my reviews

Ah, japanese cinema. And we are treated to an early performance by Sonny Chiba! Too bad the helmet obstructs the view. I believe this dubbed version I saw definitely turns on the goofy meter with terrible high squealed voices reminiscent of an Alvin and the Chipmunks outtakes session followed by high pitched ear piercingly crass sound effects and lots of weird stuff like music playing backwards, creepy demonic alien warnings, and the hokiest kung fu battle EVER. Still, this is a strange strange movie and although you want to resist slamming the screen with sledge hammer, you wonder what can occur next or the highly effectiveness of an electro barrier. If you hate flicks where smug kids are always right and run around fields with impunity, you will not enjoy this Invasion. Watch Tokyo get bombarded and a rather dubious building front from a past era (I won't even spoil it since you get more of a kick seeing it by surprise).

This MST one brings pain and you actually can share the misery that the guys on the Satellite of Love endured...and they usually watched this four or five times!! Goofy, fun, chalk board scratchingly bad, and a gamut of emotions are associated with this one. Still, way better than Mars Attacks.
