Seriously...why the blond wigs?, 21 August 2012
Author: Aaron1375

This film is not a pure movie, but rather a collection of episodes from a Japanese science fiction television show. Basically like that Time of the Apes and Mighty Jack which were also lampooned as this one was on MST3K. This one though, like those, jumps here and there and you at times cannot tell where the film is going or where it has come from. It has some elements of Star Wars and Battlestar Galactica in it and is basically about a ship captained by a man who has lost his wife and child to alien invaders.

The story is about one particular alien invader that goes against orders and accidentally kills one of his fellow troops. For reasons unknown, when you are a member of this ferocious team, you must where a blond wig and jump and roll every where even when it is completely pointless. Well he joins the ship, albeit begrudgingly, captained by the man who lost his wife and child and is now prone to mood swings. On the former bad guy's trail is his very own love from the invading planet because it was her brother that he killed. He seems to love her, but during the last portion of the film he kind of kills her. This movie is also a two parter and at the end we get a ...to be continued.

This one just is not very entertaining. About the best thing are the cute girls, but two cute girls is not enough to save this mess from being as bad as it is. During this movie there is virtually no action aside from the invading scene other than the fugitive alien running here and there and then getting beat up by a human after he stopped a forklift with his hands! If he could stop it with his hands I would think a human would be relatively easy.

So what you get to see here is another in a long line of smooshed together television shows into what sort of qualifies as a movie. Once again, it has lots of flashbacks and quick edits. Not a movie one should really strive to find suffice to say.
