Storyline

After a sudden and utterly devastating attack by the Klum, the technologically superior reptilian alien race, the Earth of the not-so-distant 2020 suffers from extensive terraforming, severe atmosphere altering--and above all--an almost complete extinction of humanity. With the last resilient survivors scattered over a nearly dead planet, mankind's last hope rests in a heroic resistance movement and in the hands of its leader, Jasper; however, before the hordes of the brutal and seemingly unstoppable extraterrestrials, the future is bleak. Is there a way to end the genocide? Written by Nick Riganas

Trivia

When Neil Blomkamp's Alien sequel was canceled, Sigourney Weaver asked what he was up to. After reading the script she asked to play Jasper. According to Blomkamp the Jasper part was originally written for a man. Coincidentally, so was Weaver's role of Ripley in the Alien franchise. See more »

Fantastic visuals, potential 10/10
30 June 2017 | by dazjamSee all my reviews

Wow!The fantasy visuals are fantastic in a hideous Blomkamp style. Seeing what has been done here reaffirms he should have been handed the keys to Alien and allowed to bring imagination and creativity back to a franchise that has, seemingly, been sold down the river. Money men and, apparently, Ridley Scott himself are OK with remixing what's gone before with unlovable characters and scripts bordering on laughable. Hopefully the old fart will retire before long. That said, though the eagerly-anticipated Aliens follow-up is currently dead, a massive shame no doubt, this could well be the start of something even better. This new alien/human conflict concept is exciting.... Sure, it's a short with a limited purse so it has minor shortcomings, slightly rough edges but just imagine if it had a full budget and Sigourney in a lead role. Happy times, fingers crossed!
