Critic Reviews for Alien Planet

All Critics (1)

A "What If?" peek at the beasts that might live on a planet six light-years away, Alien Planet is more than cool enough to keep the sci-fi geeks (like me) entertained.

Audience Reviews for Alien Planet

I was hoping for more interaction between humans and the planet, even if there was little, or even least directly, interaction between humans and the forms of life that inhabit the planet. Still, a pretty good film.

Wayne Douglas Barlowe is a freaking genius. Avatar fans (and James Cameron), you should humbly tip your hats to this man, because your precious Banshees and Leonopteryxes and Thanators wouldn't exist without his art direction. Nobody makes better aliens. Nobody. (But Nemo Ramjet comes pretty close.) Anyway, this is a sublime imagining of his surreal alien world. It's strange and beautiful.

Hopefully this will be a vanguard for similiar movies. I was entertained throughout and applauded the various life forms and their niches on the Alien Planet.
