I Thought It Was Good
1 April 2005 | by higeswhiskersSee all my reviews

Let's get this straight: The Sci-Fi Channel makes B-movies (as if Puppet Master vs Demonic Toys and Mansquito didn't make that apparent enough), but for people like me, I actually enjoy b-movies. So, when I heard that the Sci-Fi Channel was going to release a movie starring Bruce Campbell (my favorite actor), I was thrilled. Also, when I heard that Josh Becker Rob Tapert (two of the makers of the original Evil Dead) had written it, I was equally excited. So, the night came around, and I watched it. It opened promising enough, except for the whining girl. Thank God she was the first to go. It was slightly disappointing, yes, I'll give it that, but overall, I enjoyed Alien Apocalypse. The acting was cheesy, the special effects lacked heavily, and Bruce Campbell's occasional one-liners were placed here-and-there, and those aspects, to me, made the movie. Give me a Bruce Campbell movie any day, and I'll happily watch it. Give me a Bruce Campbell movie made by the Sci-Fi Channel and I'll watch it immediately. I can't understand why people are dissing this movie so much because, face it folks, Sci-Fi Channel isn't here to make high-quality movies. It delivers what the title promises: Science fiction movies, and bad ones, at that. I mean, come on, folks, these are the same guys that made Species 3 for crying out loud.
