A gem that hearkens back to the best classic science fiction
4 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I instantly recognized Zack Ward from quite a few other little sf gems, episodes of such shows as Outer Limits, Sliders, and Sarah Connor Chronicles. I don't know what it is, but this guy has a knack for showing up in some of the best episodes of the best shows - or maybe they're better because he's there. The same quality appears into Battle Planet. This movie completely blew me away, mainly because it was totally original and the goal it had in mind was done perfectly. The low budget only made the movie that much more surprising.

Kevin Thompson was unbelievably hilarious as the Panhandler. I have never laughed at a Scifi Channel movie before this one, but there were scenes that had me laughing uncontrollably.

Last but definitely not least, the female alien main character (I am not sure which actress it is) was done just as perfectly as Zack Ward's character in acting AND in makeup. The makeup was phenomenal. It felt very real, especially in scenes where she was running or moving around completely freely. Normally science fiction movies only show head/face shots and you can tell it's fake.

Great movie.
