Wakusei daisenso: Best of the trilogy, but that's not saying much
In 1957 we got The Mysterians, Tohos attempt at cashing in on the sci-fi movie popularity that was overwhelming the west. Two years later they made a sequel by the name of Battle in Outer Space and I was still left unimpressed.
I found myself wishing Toho had stuck with their dark broody movies and never dipped their feet into sci-fi. However if they hadn't we'd not have Godzilla, say I suppose something came out of it.
Almost 20yrs later Toho made the third and final part of the trilogy and it's the best of the bunch. But that's not saying much, it's still pretty damn bad.
It tells the story of a goverment with one single hope against the alien menace, an experimental ship! But the aliens are doing everything in their power to make sure it's never completed. Will our heroes overcome or will mankind fall?
Well, The War in Space is one of the cheesiest movies I've ever seen. From the script to the overwhelmingly cheddar score, it makes the original Star Trek look positively serious and Oscar worthy.
Best of the bunch, but still cringe inducing stuff.
Music badly doesn't fit in places
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
Straws make great cannons
Space minotaurs are a thing
