Alien Uprising Reviews
February 17, 2010
Wow, I didn't think you could just take another movie's total concept and make it into another movie......O wait...never mind....Anywho, this is 'Aliens' but I wouldn't call it a poor man's version. It is far less than that. Not even a B movie, more like a k or so. One plus, the monster doesn't look that bad at times. Too bad the dialogue, story and acting get in the way.

Single worst movie I have ever seen. There is a fight scene about half-way through, which dwarfs even the worst of all bad-horror-flick murder scenes with its absurdity, its lack of creativity, and its profound stupidity. It was so bad, I feel physically bad having watched up to that point. I had to turn it off. Gave it 1 star on Netflix, and would have given it 0.0001 stars if I could have. Absolutely awful. Do not waste your time on this garbage.

One line summary: This was one of the poorest indie films I've seen from the UK.
One star of five. Black holes for acting, screenplay, SFX
The main characters are Carrie and Michael (just met, but getting along well), Robin and Dana, who have just become engaged, and Vincent, who has just broken up with his girlfriend.
After a bender at a local club, the five of them get together the next morning. The electric is out, their telephones are off, both cell and land line, the AM and FM radio stations are down. The military has claimed and drained all local petrol, almost all shops are closed. There are alien somethings all around.
Two military men with a bazooka take down an alien. An old crazy with a gun challenges the same military, who proceed to kill him. He fires as well, as he goes down, and kills Robin. Michael talks the military into giving them a lift (they are corporals, he had been a lieutenant). They contact George, who has some good intel from his old days at area 51. They find that there are alien imposters among them. They identify Carrie as one of them. Things get testy after that. Even worse, the real people turn on each other.
Will anyone from the beginning survive? How about the human race?
Cinematography: 4/10 There was way too much shaky camera work.
Sound: 8/10 OK, though sound levels get out of bounds now and then.
Acting: 1/10 Jeez, terrible. JC van Damme was by far the best, but he did not have all that many lines.
Screenplay: 2/10 Showed early promise, then went down hill. Badly.
SFX: 0/10 Bad, terrible, looks poor as in 1970s poor.

Take the Nostromo from Alien, the marines from Aliens, and the prison planet from Alien 3... And you've got the first seven minutes of the movie. it's too obvious to be considered a rip-off. If you can tolerate low-budget military sci-fi, this may be worth a look into.

If you love Sci-Fi flicks then you must check out Alien Uprising. With intertwining themes similar to Alien and Total Recall, this film is definitely going to keep you wanting more. The film is full of great suspense and action. I must say, the special effects were not too shabby for an independent film. I would recommend checking out this film asap!!!
