Audience Reviews for Alien Hunter
Alien Hunter obviously had a low budget. This is more than made up for by the relatively intelligent introduction and first half of the film. The characters, situation and science all seem legitimate (for a sci-fi film) and the acting and script are both pretty good. The idea is solid all the way through to be honest, with little bits of horror, sci-fi and thriller all mixed together to build genuine intrigue and suspense. Then everything goes to pot. Okay, so it is all very familiar to other sci-fi/Alien films but the structure is sound, it's just when the film descends into people running around for no good reason territory does it all get tiresome. I quite liked the conclusion too but it looked horrible, lack of budget is no excuse. A shame, it's was all going quite well...
