Goofs

Early in the movie the alien leader reveals that he is keeping a fleet hidden behind the Moon. He then attacks the friendly alien base through subterfuge, which does not go particularly well. This is in spite of his fleet outnumbering them by many times, and that they could have just attacked the Earth directly. See more »

A great movie for it's time, when Sci-Fi was making a comeback
7 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie in the same year that "Star Wars" came out and I still liked it. Granted, it's no "Star Wars," but the kid in me loved U.F.O.'s and after all, this was the 70's. U.F.O.'s were a hot topic back then, so it's no surprise that this movie came out during the hype (there were some horrendous movies out around that time). Robert Vaughn, one of my favorite actors, turned a so-so scientist role into a pleasant success. His dry wit is always fun to watch, no matter what movie he's in. In the film, he adds a much-needed human perspective on the alien invaders and performs his role with a touch of class. He knew he was in a low budget movie, but he doesn't act like it, which is a credit to him. Then you add Christopher Lee, one of the greatest villains of all time, and you have a great viewing experience. No other actor could wear that outfit and keep a straight face, but Lee pulls it off. I still remember the pulp-style robots (like Robbie) and spaceships from this movie. They were unique in their design and the effects were better than most 70's movies. If you want to see a fun "popcorn movie" that you can enjoy with your buddies, then this is the one for you. You'll laugh in some places (cringe in others), but it's a great throwback to a time when sci-fi had almost been forgotten. It's definitely campy, but it's a lot of fun to poke fun at those things. Don't go in expecting a blockbuster, but go into this film with an open mind and enjoy it for what it is. Nearly 30 years later, I still enjoy it.
