Aliens pretending to be friendly come to Earth and are received openly. The aliens have masqueraded themselves to look just like humans. When it is discovered that the aliens' planet is dying and that they have come to rape the Earth of its natural resources, the war for Earth begins. An important key to the humans' success is distinguishing their own from who the aliens are. Written by

Much of the non-original music for the filming of V was a combination of motifs from Richard Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries" and, more notably, motifs from the fourth movement of 'Ludwig Van Beethoven''s 5th Symphony. See more »

First saw 20 years ago and its fascination to me then has not dimmed.
Skillfully told tale of alien contact - "we come in peace" but this soon changed as a deep and premeditated plot by the aliens to enslave/rape the Earth emerged. Obvious overtones common to any invader/oppressive regime in particular The Holocaust.
Strong storyline and characters that one really felt involved with/cared for.
Special effects (especially the at-times wobbly V shuttle craft) not state-of-the-art by today's standards but competently done and more than compensated for by the strength of the storyline.
Would recommend to people who don't particularly like sci-fi, because of the personal side of the story.
10 out of 10.
