Oh dear, this was bad, well no, actually it was beyond bad. I saw the word undead, so I thought this might be fun to watch. Undead in space, sure, why not? But wow, I was blown away, and not in a good way.
The storyline in "Earthkiller", well it wasn't all bad. There were some good enough ideas here and there, but it was weighed down by atrocious CGI effects, bad dialogue and mediocre acting. So sadly, a semi-good storyline couldn't even save this movie.
For the first one-quarter of the movie, approximately, it is all about following a naked skinny woman running around on a space station, which, mind you, doesn't even remotely start to have the feeling of a space station to it at all. It was looking more like a make-believe space station in the backyard of a cheesy fast-food restaurant. It was such an eyesore. Especially the automatic doors. Wow. Just wow! You have to see that to believe it.
But it gets better. The strange robotic reptilians or whatever they were supposed to be, they were definitely amongst the top three of badly animated monsters in movies that I have had the pleasure of watching. It was so bad that it was hard not to laugh and take it all as a joke. I think I would actually laugh myself to death if I was being chased by such a fake monstrosity.
The movie makers tried to implement some blood in the movie, but again, failed at a horrible level. It looked so bad and so unbelievably fake, that you will just sit there and shake your head in disbelief.
If you enjoy a good Sci-Fi movie or a good undead movie, then do yourself a favor and stay well clear of "Earthkiller", because it is not worth the effort regardless of what approach you take to it. The movies that SyFy Channel pump out by the dozens are far better than this one, and that actually says a lot!
