Works as a crazy curiosity for sci-fi freaks, but not much more.
Audience Reviews for Invasion!
A.K.A.-Top Of The Food Chain.
Deliriously odbball film benefits from witty dialogue, bizzare characters, a solid cast to play them (the standout being Campbell Scott) and it's tongue-in-cheek winks to sci-fi films of yesteryear.
All in all it's a refreshingly funny and strange scifi/horror/comedy that had me laughing all the way through. Thanks to the good Dr. for recommending this to me.
Oh and there's also this easy on the eyes piece of fine feminine form:
This movie is funny, it's original, it's engaging, it has gore, it has romance, clever dialogue, and most importantly and unlike those films that it's satirizing, it actually has some great actors impersonating bad ones. One actor who truly made this film stand out was Campbell Scott, playing an admirable scientist who is always spouting such great lines. Campbell plays his role perfectly, delivering every cheezy line with overconfidence.
If you are a fan of 1950s science fiction like I am, you will find this a very pleasant spoof with lots of hilarious quotes, odd characters, slimy aliens and Fiona Leowi in all of her breathless, eye-batting glory.
