The worst film I have seen in recent times.

This was utterly dreadful. First, the script. To say the storyline was childish and predictable was an understatement. This was apparently written by a fourteen year old desperately pasting a bad old Vietnam movie script into his school essay and then it being misdirected to Hollywood.There was no character development, but as they were all whiny stereotypes maybe that was not a bad thing, for what speech there was made Stallone in First Blood look like Shakespeare. The good thing was that the 'movie' was extremely short, the less in this case the better. Secondly, the special effects were minimal and poor, apparently the film budget not running to the hire of an old Huey helicopter and a tin of green paint. The 'aliens' were extras running around in Mad Max suits with rubber snakes hanging over their faces. 1960's Dr. Who did better. The camera work was 'shaky' to presumably inject tension. it did not; it injected a sense of unoriginality and irritation. In short, it was an unentertaining, boring, whine-fest with an inexplicable ending, with characters so excruciating that I was cheering for the aliens. At least 'Pearl Harbour' looked like it had been made by professionals.
