Alien Uprising Reviews
A restaurant is filled with people with different agendas. There is a couple that just got engaged and another group of friends in the bar getting together for the first time in a long time. The planet is invaded by aliens and the friends will band together to try and survive. They will find humanity as dangerous as the aliens.
"Beware of the color purple."
Dominic Burns, director of How to Stop Being a Loser, Cut Allies, and Airborne, delivers Alien Uprising in his third major motion picture. The storyline for this picture has zombie apocalypse written all over it with a different twist. The acting is awful with a few good one-liners sprinkled here and there that keep the movie light.
"I've never seen fear in a man's eyes like that."
I saw this movie on Netflix and decided to give it a shot...I shouldn't have. I had no idea this was a Jean-Claude Van Damme movie...and it felt like it. This has a made for television science fiction feel that makes this a mess not worth your time.
"Shoot the bitch!"
(2013) Alien Uprising
A poor combination from many superior alien invasion flicks, including "Attack At The Block", "Invasion Of The Body Snatchers", "District 9" and an idea taken from "28 Days Later". This entire movie makes zero sense, as it centers on a group of friends after leaving at a nightclub, and upon waking up the following day, electricity seem to be completely out throughout the entire region. Confusing is the fact that not one single person had ever thought about finding out the reason. And once learning that an UFO ship has settled over the area, the entire city then go to panic mode with no police or army in sight- there isn't even those wind-up radios, solar powered anything. Viewers later find out that the aliens that are invading looked like people. We're neither explained about what form nor how. It's like the makers assumed that actual people are just blatantly uncurious and are narrow minded. And as the movie is progressing, it is then revealed that people in general are able to tell who are the ones who aren't human by spotting a small triangle mark on them, but it's like where do you have to go to look and why. It's so poorly made, that it almost seemed that the budget finally ran out, and that the story had to be compromised.
