On an asteroid, the Terran Federation's Fort Casey is on top of a bug hive. The Starship Alesia begins to deploy its troops to seize and control the hanger and rescue any survivors. 'Alpha'... See full summary »
We are sent back to the battlefield, as the Federation's best Mobile Infantry unit are slowly being overpowered by the killer bugs. They are light years from the nearest reinforcements and are trapped on a remote outpost. They set up protection around the post, keeping all the bugs waiting for them to leave. But now the enemy is in the outpost, in a way which they would have never thought of. Written by
The storm clouds are actually toilet paper tubes with cotton stuck to them, slowly rolled forward. They were darkened and layered digitally. See more »
When a trooper is dragged away during the attack on the outpost it is obvious she is being pulled by wires, as the bug is simply backing up with her. For much of the shot it is not even touching the trooper. See more »

This movie is unwatchable. I found every single feature of it to be revolting.
For one, we have the effects. Every single bullet shot is a lame CGed blue pulse.
Two, they obviously didn't have anybody research military tactics. When the bugs are about to attack, instead of holding out inside the base and killing the bugs in hemmed-in territory (a la Sun Tsu), they move outside the base and massively expand their front. When the troops send a runner to inform someone that the bugs were coming, they send a heavy weapons operator, complete with his heavy gun.
Moreover, the behavior of the General is completely stupid. He acts like a Corporal at BEST.
The music is VERY poorly chosen, and never fits the scenes. Foreshadowing is very overt. Even the directing is shoddy... when the psychic fellow hallucinates, they use very ambiguous effects to signify it.
Please, avoid this movie at ALL COSTS. I swear, it couldn't have cost more than $50,000 to make...
