Critic Reviews for Occupation

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (5)

  • Occupation gets the job done with a minimum of fuss and an abundance of explosive set pieces that will likely endear it to domestic fans, even if it's mostly forgettable otherwise.

  • There are no characters sufficiently developed to be worth caring about and no suspense in any of the chaotic and badly choreographed battle sequences.

    Jul 22, 2018 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • This is the rare action movie that's almost more exciting when the characters put down their guns and take up an argument.

    Jul 19, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Occupation is an action-movie throwback, a comfortable old combat boot. It's rousing in the old, familiar ways, but shouldn't all that sound and fury signify something?

    Jul 18, 2018 | Full Review…
  • When straining for significance, slow motion is his answer every time and the lameness of his ending is infused with a risible shot of sentimentality.

    Jul 13, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Before a tribe of aliens attack Earth, meanly blasting the bejesus out of everything in their path, night-time footie in a small Aussie town is as home-grown as it gets.

Audience Reviews for Occupation

  • Aug 05, 2018
    Poorly shot invasion film that has its heart in the right place but ultimately fails at being a cult film. You can only reward a film for ambition but when it fails to be the guilty pleasure it aspires to be, it's difficult to watch. The action scenes are a little generic and the scope of the film attempts to be much larger than the budget of the film, not a bad thing but it doesn't really work here. The acting is tough to swallow, they deliver lines that are cringe inducing, my friend was listening in another room and asked if I was watching Sharknado again, not a good thing for someone not watching the movie. I like guilty pleasure films but when I fall asleep twice and struggle to enjoy the film, I can't help but voice my frustrations. There was a concept here that would work and this is what is the most frustrating aspect of the film. I wanted to like this film and sadly it ends up like Battle Los Angeles did all those years ago. A B Movie concept that won't become that cult classic is attempts to be. Harmless movie that others might dig, sadly I could not. 05/08/2018.
