far from worth watching (with blindfolds on)
7 May 2004 | by See all my reviews

"Target Earth" is a catchy title for a movie, that's for sure. One may expect at least an average movie experience from the sound of it. Well, after reading other users' comments on this one, I got curious and gave it a try, thinking "it can't be that bad as they think!". Ooh yes, I assure you, it can. :( There are movies, B movies, and there certainly should be a category for movies like this: it could be called "the Z ones".

Why? Because it simply hasn't got any original ideas, characters, plot whatsoever. Yeah, the bad guy may be worth 5 minutes of watching, but a whole evening AND TV commercials? I don't think so.
