Trivia

Chris Farber was originally supposed to have the last name of Faber but Michael Ironside kept pronouncing Farber so they changed it. (This is why scripts and books will often have Faber rather than Farber). See more »

A cult classic
22 June 1999 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

While other folks were knee-deep in Star Wars and Star Trek, this was the movie that mesmerized me. The world taken over by Alien Nazis, pretty inventive. Looking back, it is obvious that this is a very high quality production not the ordinary made for TV drivel. With a great concept and terrific acting by Marc Singer, Faye Grant, and Michael Ironside, interest is held throughout the full 10 hours. Except for the phony ending, the entire saga is great. Special effects were also state of the art then. When I compare the laser blasts in Star Wars with V FB, no contest. V rules. PLEASE PUT THIS ON DVD.
