This Filipino Sci-Fi blockbuster uses the template set out by Hollywood. It's great to see so many elements employed in later films such as Avatar/District 9, used here on a small budget, but NOT small scale. The film is entertaining and had me gripped for the most part. It would seem that flawed CGI with a lot of effort is more interesting than flawless CGI. We get giant robot/mech-suit battles, aliens, and even a bicycle chase. That bicycle chase was more exciting that flying alien-raptor- birds. It mixes a bit of comedy/romance/emotion and is pretty successful. Sure, the dialogue and effects are at the same level as Power Ranger episodes, but if you like cheap and campy sci-fi, then Resiklo ain't too shoddy.
