Year: 2008


Hundreds of massive intergalactic robots appear in all of the world's major capitals with an ultimatum: Prove the value of human civilization or be destroyed.

I still continue to be amazed at those that say The Asylum rips off Hollywood movies, what do they think the new film, "The Day The Earth Stood Still" is? Anyway I am a bit sick of hearing the whining and wish those that do would just move on and rent or buy something else instead of complaining. I really liked what I saw in the trailer here and with C. Thomas Howell returning it made me a little more eager to see this one. The film itself is closer to the original than the one currently in theaters as far as story goes and for what it is worth I found this one to be much better for that reason alone. C. Thomas Howell not only directs this but also stars in it as Josh Myron, a man that unlike the Government believes what the aliens are telling him and is willing to risk his life to try and save mankind. The story was very interesting, there was a few spots in the film where I felt it could of used a little better editing to keep an even pace but that was a minor flaw. The special effects were fantastic for a low-budget film, I see The Asylum making huge strides in this department which is good to see. The film contains a bit of nudity but let me tell you it also has the sexiest alien I have seen on film since "Species". People need to relax a little and start looking at each movie for what it is instead of being quick to judge, it is like comparing apples to oranges which doesn't make a lot of sense. I enjoy this little Sci-FI film, most everything worked including the acting, settings and effects which were used to enhance the story not be it like some other movie I mentioned above. So if you don't get what The Asylum is doing move on, find a new hobby or something but if you like the genre and Independent film that I recommend picking this up because with an open-mind I am sure you will enjoy this as well. Released by The Asylum Home Entertainment. **** Out Of *****
