So Horrible I Couldn't Turn It Off
16 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If the main purpose of a movie like this is to draw you in such a way that you have to finish it out of sheer absurd curiosity, then this movie accomplished that. Horrible writing and acting (Here's looking at YOU "Queen Mara"), and the aliens were hideous. It's hard to figure out who you're supposed to root for. My five year old instantly lost interest. I give this a two based solely on the fact that I couldn't look away. Yes, a complete train wreck. We got this movie from a Redbox only because the other movies my son wanted to watch were out of stock. What a waste of $1.00. Do yourself a favor, skip this flick and get something from the MST3K series instead.
