While inspecting the burning car, Vic Holden claims that he can smell methane. This cannot happen - methane is odorless. When it is supplied as natural gas into buildings for gas appliances, another chemical, usually ethyl mercaptan, is added to the gas to give it a distinctive odor that lets people know when a leak occurs.

Rubber sock-puppet aliens aren't the worst part!
15 August 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Alien Express is one of the worst movies I've bothered to experience.

The plot is predictable. The aliens look like rubber sock puppets. The effects would have been mediocre in the 70's, but are just atrocious by today's standards. Couldn't they take a shot of a real train instead of using an obvious model?

The acting isn't great but, really, the dialogue is the worst part. It gouges its way into your mind. "Don't you die on me. Not now." If you ever manage to suspend disbelief long enough to be absorbed into the movie, you'll rapidly be jolted painfully back to reality by the aliens, the model train, or the clichéd dialogue.

The only reason I didn't give this movie a "1" is that it doesn't deserve to be rated so badly that some poor suckers might watch it for the pleasure inherent in a truly bad film.
