Notable only for most of the acting
19 August 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The best aspect of Roswell: The Aliens Attack is Kate Greenhouse, she is very good in her role and is beautiful to boot. The supporting roles of Brent Stait, Sean McCann and Donnelly Rhodes are also well taken. Not all the acting is as successful. Steven Flynn plays a character that is too nice and somewhat too compassionate and is unconvincing even doing that, he is very stiff throughout with a very limited emotional range. Heather Hanson is not helped by a character that is so vapid that it borders on absurdity, but while she is good doing sultry and seductive that's all she's good at seemingly. Visually it is not exactly amateurish but there's never really much that comes across as interesting, and we got the message very quickly that Kate Greenhouse was a beauty, we didn't need as many shots and close-ups as we did. The special effects are wisely used sparsely but that seemed to be an excuse to not put effort into constructing them at the same time. The soundtrack tended to be on the heavy and pedestrian side, nothing much that was memorable or subtly done. The dialogue is contrived and rather cheesy, with Heather Hanson's lines especially cringe-worthy, a lot of it is stuff that we've heard before but better incorporated and delivered, while the direction is flat in character and plodding. Narratively, Roswell: The Aliens Attack is a mess. The moral conflict is not convincing, not helped by a too-nice lead character, the tension and drama is contrived and lacking in suspense, the ending is so overly-sentimental and saccharine that it will induce toothache, and in the end all of it was predictable, ham-fisted and dull. There are some good enough ideas here, but they're never elaborated upon, such a shameful waste of good potential. The characters are not the obnoxious kind, but rather underdeveloped and devoid of personality. Overall, a very poor movie but the acting from most is quite good. 2/10 Bethany Cox
