This is 1980's b-movie bad
28 August 2018 | by mastermaker-27886See all my reviews

How this has gotten enough positive reviews to get a 6 rating is beyond me. I don't normally bother to do something like write a review and definitely not a bad one, but this warranted it.

It is like they transplanted a Australian 1980's B-movie director to the present day and he tried to condense the TV-series Falling Skies(which is a half-way decent series) into a movie using every cliche imaginable with a sprinkling of Red Dawn on top.

If I were to sum it up it is like what could have been a good story was re-told by an over 12 year old boy, skipping ahead when there should have been detail and spending a lot of time elaborating poorly on action scenes.

Could have been a good movie and the story is actually not that bad but the way this is made is just.. bad.
