I love this movie!!!!!!!!!!!!
23 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

Goke has this great, rare exploitation look of the 60's. With extreme bright colours like orange, red and yellow. Great sounds of cheap ass spaceships sending out information to those who has a twisted mind, and venerable for their wicked master plan. Namely to take over the world again. The real cool thing of this cheap thrill flick is the message underneath. In fact the aliens want to make clear to us that taking over the world isn't that difficult. Cause we people are bound to destroy each other. We are building for the kill and the only thing the invaders have to do is to sit and wait till each and one of those humans are dead. Of course in Goke are some people who don't give up and try to fight the aliens. Only for them to find out that this guy and girl are all alone on planet earth. Goke take you all the way. Spaceships, weird landscapes psychocolors weird sound effects, enough action packed scenes and classic shots of spaceship invaders attacking the world. I love this Movie deeply!!!!!!!!!!!
