A totally enjoyable but rotten movie
21 October 2018 | by ajochumSee all my reviews

As most have mentioned, it was filled with silly car chases that made little sense - nobody did the obvious of shooting out tires to stop them. The little girl is missing, potentially dying and he's looking at the naked alien with lust in his eyes - well, maybe that's normal nowadays. The space craft crashes because it is damaged and won't run. Yet, they get back in it later on expecting it to take them far away. Amazing. Most importantly, they never run out of bullets! We all know that a pistol holds 6 bullets, unless it contains a magazine. Not for these guys! They must have shot 200 rounds with each one. Oh, perhaps the alien produced magic bullets. :) So, I write all of this and say it was enjoyable. It was! Totally silly, not for the intellectual by any means. If you just want a lively couple of hours and enjoy fun stupidity, this is a good movie for you.
