Critic Reviews for Alien Outpost

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (5)

Plagued by a rickety premise, generic sets and invaders who recall Doctor Who's Cybermen, "Alien Outpost" jabs its finger at the Iraq War with repetitive obviousness.

The film looks as though the bulk of the budget was reserved for ammo.

[It] sounds, as so many things do on the level of 25-words-or-less ephemera, incredible. In execution, it's a real slog.

A sci-fi actioner with the production values of your average porno, "Alien Outpost" spews clichés like a machine gun set on maximum triteness.

Viewers are ... stuck for 90 minutes watching actors in camo gear shout "Go! Go! Go!" while dashing around drab scrubland.

Even though the performances are sound and some of the metaphors hold, we're not engrossed enough by them to ignore the tangled story logic all around.

Audience Reviews for Alien Outpost

Basically plays out like Restrepo with aliens. That's the best way I can describe this. It is by no means a good film, but it's not bad either. I can't say I'd recommend it, though it is a fairly entertaining watch.

Standard Army-unit-all-on-its-own, with every damn one of the clichés that that entails unfortunately, up against the seldom seem men-in-rubber-suits aliens, all done with a neighborhood guys in their backyard for the weekend off for a budget. Avoid it.
