Extraterrestrial Reviews

We Got This Covered

Extraterrestrial comes out of left field with characteristic charm and unexpected plotlines, but it delights nonetheless.

"Extraterrestrial" becomes a comedy of one-lie-after-another. And, a great deal of it is funny/interesting enough to keep you locked into the story, even as you wait and wait and wait for the aliens TO DO SOMETHING.

Vigalondo makes the most of a handful of locations while bouncing romantic farce off a (largely unseen) world-changing event.

Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema

If Extraterrestrial is to explore what might be called Third Wheel Syndrome, Vigalondo needed to bring greater tension to the romantic triangle than what exists.

Never quite the feature most will expect it to be, Extraterrestrial is a charming submission of low-fi scripting, using a colossal development in universal happenings to reinforce the quirks and hazards of love.

On the whole, Extraterrestrial is slight, filled with lots of bark but little bite.

If you only see one film this month about characters seeking a friend for the end of the world, this is the more charming of the two.

It's easy to settle in for the oddball charms of this tale of love among the ruins.

Even though it's not entirely successful, there is an undeniably oddball charm on display.

Film School Rejects

Vigalondo's interest in the invasion extends only so far as it works to isolate his characters and force them into interaction.

A bone-dry and nearly pitch-perfect combo of romantic comedy, absurdist farce and alien-invasion drama...

A tiresome roundelay of lies, lust and leaping paranoia.

As comedies go, it's as dry as bleached bones in the desert, but you can't blame Vigalondo for taking another shot at cleverness.

There is originality, certainly. But Vigalondo teased us with the moon and the stars, and delivered only the terrestrial.

Diverting trifle of romantic misunderstandings in Madrid, under the shadow of an apparently benign spaceship occupation, never gathers steam nor finds a consistent tone.

Quirky, but infinitely more interesting than big-budget Hollywood cousins.

A lightly comic genre piece where not much happens and no one has much amusing to say.

Extraterrestrial is a comedy dropped agreeably into an alien invasion-well, maybe not invasion. The spaceship just sits there.

Guided by director Nacho Vigalondo's understated wit, the story never adheres to expectations.

In almost every respect, Extraterrestrial is an exceptional and traditional romantic comedy. It just happens to be set during an alien invasion.
