My friends and I decided to watch this movie as part of our all-night bad movie marathon to see if any of us could stand more than 15 hours of perfectly terrible films. None of us had seen the movie prior to the party, but the title alone let us know that it would fit perfectly into our rotation of movies such as "Puppet Master III" and "Howling V."
We were right. In fact, two of the four participants in the marathon were wiped out of the running by this one. And those were people who were able to make it (barely) through "Barney's Great Adventure." When the movie begins, you'll think you've missed the first ten minutes of the movie. In fact, this effect only arises out of the fact that the movie begins VERY abruptly. All we know about the main character's origins is that he flew in on a ship and fell to Earth. We don't know anything about him, his race, his natural form, or even why he's coming to Earth in the first place. This is especially bad when one considers that a keystone in the "[something] from Outer Space" movie genre (yes, there are so many of them that they deserve to be put in their own genre) is the cool special alien effects and some knowledge of an alien race far superior to our own, plus an interesting reason for their arrival. None of that here. Instead, we get ninty minutes of this guy walking around. He also can't talk (unexplained, makes the movie just that much more boring.) He can also fix video arcade games and small wounds by moving his hand around them (also unexplained, only used in two or three scenes and plays almost no part in the movie, again, yet more potential for goodness totally missed by the dotes who made this film.)
If you're into bad movies, rent it. If not, it's best left alone.
