Storyline

The Battle begun in the Miniseries 'V' continues. The war is told from the view point of the resistance group based in Los Angeles, CA as they struggle to find weaknesses of the aliens they can exploit. In addition, not all the aliens feel their invasion was right, and also work to stop the war. Written by Brian W Martz <B.Martz@Genie.com>

Trivia

In the conversion chamber scene, the rotating images of Julie (Faye Grant) on the screen were made based on actual filming of the actress. They used a black and white camera to film her in the skin-tight suit and added glowing effects to make them look like the computer was generating her physical images. See more »

Goofs

At various points throughout all 3 parts of the Mini-Series, the vocal reverberation effect that is supposedly one of the only ways a Visitor can be detected as not human is either very low or completely missing from the sound mix. This is present on both the original 1984 broadcast as well as the DVD release. See more »

Fantastic Conclusion To V:The Mini Series
24 August 2002 | by (England) – See all my reviews

V:The Final Battle is an exciting conclusion to the battle between the visitors and the resistance which started in the mini-series.

Things get really tense during this series as the war steps up a notch. The visitors are prepared to destroy the earth to further their aims whilst the resistance are preparing plans to rid the Earth of the aliens forever.

This series has everything-shocks, surprises, betrayals and plenty of action. As for the ending, wow!

If you liked the Mini-Series, you will love it's conclusion. Back in the late 80's I watched the entire Mini-Series and The Final Battle in one go with some friends-that's how great it was.
