Earth depends on a handful of retired soldiers...
25 August 2013 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Another SyFy Channel movie to grace the screen, but unfortunately this one doesn't extinguish itself from the rest of the bunch. And it is essentially a very predictable Sci-Fi movie.

The story is about a group of middle aged, retired soldiers saving planet earth from aliens! A unit of extraterrestrial special operatives are sent into retirement, but have to don their uniforms and weapons one last time as aliens return to Earth to invade the planet for some unknown reason.

And as it is with these kind of movies, then you know the ending right from the very beginning. And true enough, the movie does not let down the audience on this account.

"Invasion Roswell" suffered badly from a predictable storyline and bad CGI effects, which essentially was the killer of the enjoyment for the movie, as the acting done by the people on the cast list was actually good enough - but they just had very little to work with.

It should be said that the alien suits were actually looking nice, although it sort of took the entire alien being away from the movie as they wore helmets and we only got to see one alien while it was undergoing an autopsy.

When we are first introduced to the alien weapons, I nearly spilled my drink. The weapons looked so much like those toy guns you can get for the PlayStation 3 Move controllers - into which you put the controller and wield the combined two pieces like an actual "weapon". It was hilarious.

"Invasion Roswell" might actually have something to offer to the audience that enjoy cheesy, campy and generic Sci-Fi movies. This is not a million-dollar Hollywood CGI-fest, so don't get your hopes up. For me, despite its predictability and cheesiness, then "Invasion Roswell" gets a 3 out of 10 rating - there is just something bizarrely entertaining about these campy movies.
