Critic Reviews for Daleks - Invasion Earth 2150 A.D.

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2)

Very tame but marginally better than the first, with the Daleks unsurprisingly coming to grief after invading a ruined London of the future and robotising the inhabitants. Very variable special effects and often excruciatingly cheapo sets.

It is all fairly naive stuff...decked out with impressive scientific jargon.

Lots of vim and dramatic music here, but precious little polish or decent scripting.

Simple and largely unsophisticated it may be, but Daleks - Invasion Earth: 21050 AD, like its predecessor, deserves its place in the limelight again.

For its time, this is an impressive piece of work. Though it looks a bit stagey, the sets, like the script, are well designed to let simple special effects have maximum impact.

Through all the mindless mayhem roll the ever-impressive Daleks, truly one of science fiction's greatest alien creations.

Audience Reviews for Daleks - Invasion Earth 2150 A.D.

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.
