Sometimes good, sometimes disappointing
9 August 2000 | by (Kingston, Ontario) – See all my reviews

Technically, Invasion America was fairly impressive. It appeared to be an attempt to translate Japanese animation techniques onto North American television. In that, it was relatively successful.

Unfortunately, the plot resembled something out of a B-movie. David is a young man with an alien heritage who discovers that his uncle is planning to invade America. During his quest, he finds a presidential fort WITHOUT a working fence, asteroids that hit the earth causing explosions only slightly larger than the rocks themselves, a character who can apparently read subtitles, and villains who conveniently speak in English to each other whenever an earthling is around.

If there hadn't been so much to laugh at, this would have truly been a groundbreaking series. Sadly, at best it is a curiosity.
