Great movie
28 August 2006 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I think this is a great movie, well paced, good special effects considering the budget restraints and a novel idea, of an alien race seeking to build a dictatorship state with which to enslave the world. Another charming aspect I liked about the film is that it doesn't take itself to seriously and I love the scene of the monsters attacking the city. Great puppetry! Also as its good to see Peter Gilmore in a different role other than James Onedin side be side with Trampas Doug Mclure. Strange bed fellows indeed. Never realised that it was Kevin Connor - he directed land that time forgot, that directed this movie until much later. Probably explains why I liked Warlords in the first place.
