Alien Species. Generic nae for a generic movie. Also, did these guys like, have any original ideas? I know I just said it's generic, but this is just 500 different shades of copycat bs with basically no originality to it. It's not like I'm trying to find fault, cut on my Strange Tales boxset, these films are below the scope normally considered "bad" even for me.
Alien Species has it all. Terrible, hackneyed cartoonish CGI alien ships that zoom around blowing shit up. Some innocent-or-not criminals that eventually have to get let loose by the cops so they can help out fight the aliens. Horribly acted ditsy blonde airhead women who run around in small outfits. And surprisingly, somewhat decent looking physical embodiments of aliens when they actually appear in the flesh.
That paragraph is basically the plot too. Criminals being transported by Charles Napier in a small sheriff role get let loose eventually to help fight off the alien ships, and then it's like fuckin bullshit crap as the aliens and humans struggle in their intergalactic fight and the movie goes on like you care. 90 minutes, it didn't feel like an eternity, but there were many other things I could've done instead.
Effects, acting, pacing, and dialogue were all in the crapper. Seriously the acting here was goddamn some of the worst I have seen yet. I watched this while texting and petting my cat. I was way more interested in scratching my cats chin then this mess of a flick. I wonder what the best movie is that director Peter Maris as ever made? I don't intend to watch them and find out. I would give this one star, but since it might be fun to rip on with friends, I'll upgrade to 2.
