The sequel to the painfully heartless Doctor Who and the Daleks is a vast improvement in terms of cinematic excitement. The action sequences are more thrilling and for what it is it is actually quite scary at times. This film adaption of another classic Who serial "The Dalek Invasion of Earth" ultimately has a charm and bright classic feeling to it that the original never possesed.

I've never watched the Dr. Who series, but seeing this movie makes me want to start. It's got a great story, and cool special effects and everything, I really liked it.

Based on a story from the BBC TV serial "Doctor Who". Dr. Who and his companions arrive on Earth in the year 2150 AD, only to discover that the planet has been invaded and its population enslaved by the dreaded Daleks. The time travellers assist human resistance groups to foil the Daleks' plan to mine the Earth's core.

Peter Cushing stars in this big screen adaptation of the long running children's sci-fi TV show, introducing himself as "Doctor Who" much to the chagrin of Who ner...I mean aficionados everywhere I'm sure. The invincible (well, as long as you don't tip them over or put a tarpaulin over their heads) Daleks are an old favourite, but it's effects show the obvious constraints of the budget although Cushing makes a perfectly affable Doctor, portraying him as an eccentric old buffer. Unfortunately, the presence of Bernard Cribbins combines with an absurdly inappropriate soundtrack and juvenile humour to make it seem more like "Carry On Time Travelling". I think kids are far too used to fancy CGI to take to this kind of thing, so the only audience I can see for it are ageing nostalgic Doctor Who aficio...I mean nerds.

They still scared the pants off me up until recently...and with this fantastical array of coloured mobile bins with guns you will love it too.....

It's not good "Doctor Who", but it's better than the first "Dr. Who". The characters aren't handled that well, but at least they're not incredibly cheese. The Daleks get annoying and don't come off threatening. Some plot progresses just pop off at random. Dumb fun, decent characters and cast.

Although this is a vast improvement over the first non-canon Doctor Who film, it doesn't get beyond "meh"

Better than the first film, but mostly because of Bernard Cribbins. Peter Cushing is better as Dr. Who as well, and the fact that this is based on a better TV serial than the first movie was helps as well. This one is based on The Dalek Invasion of Earth...but this movie, while being in color and having way better visuals and effects...lacks the heart of William Hartnell and the cheap old rickety black and white TV Who. In that sense it doesn't differ much from the first film...but the TV story here had a real emotional core...and its lost in the film translation. The Cushing Films are an interesting addition to the Doctor Who world, but they certainly aren't canonical, and they are more about the special effects than character or story...but the visuals are stunning, even for mid sixties. These films still look good even today.

The funny thing is, this sequel to the so-kitsch-it-hurts "Dr. Who and the Daleks" is actually quite good. In fact, it's better than the 6-part serial upon which it's based. Not everything works, but it gels better with a more studied performance from Peter Cushing, good support from Andrew Keir and (oddly) Bernard Cribbins, and solid, uniform Daleks and Robomen. Still a little kitsch, but good stuff, all the same.

Great follow up to Dr. Who and the Daleks. It also shows how the Dalek design for this film carried on to the New Doctor Who (2005) series 40 years later.

Better than the original, Daleks Invasion Earth 2150 A.D retains the fun and exciting nature of the first Daleks film, but fails to fix the faults of the previous film.

This Sequel (That's Also A Remake Of A Doctor Who Serial), Is Better Than It's Predecessor, It Has A More Cinematic Feel & Captures The Adventure A Lot Better. This May Be Because The Plot Is Better. Peter Cushing Replaces Hartnell Once Again To Remake The Story, "Daleks Invasion Of Earth". Here The Doctor And His Crew Must Face The Daleks In The Year 2150 A.D. As They Try To Dominate The Future Earth. Performances Are Better Due To A Better Script & Plot, It Does Has Some Unintentionally Funny Moments. What Is Produced Is An Above Average Film, Which Entertains.
