Trivia

There were two different versions of the film made. Version one: The aliens mostly speak in an alien language, with subtitles. There is one alien that speaks English, but it is a lifeless dialogue, with an equally dull voice. Version two: Same version as above, in terms of video. But the alien subtitles and dialogue have been completely removed, along with their dull voices. It has been re-dubbed with a silly Monty Python styled English dialogue, and just as silly voice actors. Who are extremely funny, the alternate audio transforming the movie completely. See more »

not for american taste
8 November 2001 | by halfpappSee all my reviews

at first i must say that i'm german. considering this film to be made by a german producer/director, my comment is influenced by a different way of life than the american one. this film is made by european and made for europeans. the humor, the jokes appearing in this movie are hard to understand when you're u.s. american.

ok, i don't know the book. but my personal experiences tell me that nearly every movie is disappointing compared to the original book.

this film is simply "cool". a weird story, british black humor mixed with some intelligent jokes. not made for broad masses. "underdog" would be a good word to describe it. it's a pity that it had not a sucess like the blair witch project. a european film has to be extraordinary to be succesful in the u.s. the last try to make a good film was "das boot", directed by wolfgang petersen, now being a great director in hollywood. a great story, great emotions, great actors (juergen prochnow, e.g.),a surprising end and a perfect technique was not enough to prevail in u.s. cinemas. the same happened to "high crusade". not lacking on famous actors, not lacking in good fx, the film was not good enough for the u.s. market.

what more to say. it had no success and it won't have any success. but i will watch it everytime it is shown on tv.
