Galaxy Invader It's worth starting this review with a quick run down of the plot. A spaceship crash lands on Earth, and is relentlessly pursued by a gang of drunken rednecks, who want to catch it to sell to the highest bidder.
Well, what a movie this is, a perfect blend of stereotyped characters, awful acting and stupid SFX, it's hard to know where to start. How about the drunken rednecks? This rabble is about as stereotyped as you can get. One of the opening scenes involves our main redneck chasing after his mid twenties daughter with a shotgun because she called him something like a no good drunken bum. He also spends the entire movie wearing a badly ripped T-shirt. Most of the gang he collects to hunt the alien aren't much better, they seem to have cans of beer grafted to their hands, mostly wear the obligatory checked shirts, and run about whooping and hollering as they chase their prey in the dead of night. Nothing like a bit of night to give that 'element of surprise' edge when on a hunt eh? The alien itself is actually not that bad, but again, you can't help but feel like you've seen that costume in every other alien/swamp creature movie you've ever watched, although often a lot better quality than that one. He does, however carry around a glowing crystal ball, and gun that shoots fireworks, making for a great shoot out in the middle of the movie, it's like November the fifth has come early.
And finally, like any alien movie, there has to be some good guys on the aliens side, and yup, you guessed it, it's a kid! Along with his UFO obsessed teacher they attempt to free the alien save the day. You do have to hand it to the kid though, his commitment to this cause means he's quite happy to wait alone in a field in the dead of night for six hours whilst his teacher gets up and casually makes a couple of phone calls first.
I won't spoil the ending too much, but needless to say, after watching the rest of the movie, it lives up to the expectation that it'll make no sense and answer no questions Conclusion, One of those movies that grows on you every time you watch it. Like a mysterious rash. It'll have you laughing cringing and bored all at once.
