Pretty awful Japanese sci-fi flick, 9 August 2013
Author: Red-Barracuda from Edinburgh, Scotland, UK

This unbearable, campy sci-fi action film was seemingly created by editing together several episodes from a Japanese TV series. The result is a very bad film. Its story thrusts you into things with little in the way of explanation. Some aliens called the Wolf Raiders wage war on humanity and attack the Earth. One of the Raiders called Ken refuses to kill an Earth child called Ken, and in doing so angers his people, hence making him...the fugitive alien! It's a nonsense plot but I've encountered way worse. The problem was it made me feel so bored. On paper, quite a lot actually happens in this film but in practice, it's never very interesting.

Matters aren't really helped by the dubbing, which is carried out by a group of extremely terrible voice actors. The voices in this film are heavy going on the ears and really try your patience. What doesn't exactly improve matters is the fact that the running time is 102 minutes, which is just way too long for something this crappy. The special effects and costumes are all bargain basement too. But the most disappointing thing about the entire film was the fact that the Wolf Raiders did not sport poodle perm hairdos. Bizarrely, and nonsensically, they seem to merely have wigs attached to their combat helmets. Why this should be is simply one of the mysteries of Fugitive Alien. A mystery I will never solve as I have no intention of revisiting this dreck ever again.
