Not great, but an entertaining B movie sci-fi thriller with Bruce Campbell.

Filme divertido de baixo orçamento. O carisma de Campbell faz esse filme ser gostoso de assistir

Perfect for the SciFi Channel.

I found this to be a brilliant send-up of everything wrong with low budget horror flicks from the 70's and 80's. They hit so many cliches perfectly. The absurd plot holes seem deliberate. The TITLE is a BAD PUN. This movie satisfies a very specific, acquired taste in movies, and needs Campbell to complete the ensemble, but I think it is a fully self-aware comedy.

Campbell is the sole reason this movie even gets 2 stars

Aliens among us story that largely takes place in a charter flight terminal (terminal invasion get it??). Lightweight film that is really a vehicle for Bruce Campbell to do what he does so very well - glower and throw one-liners. Campbell fans (or Saturday afternoon SyFy fans) will enjoy it.

Not bad, but there's nothing really great either. Bruce Campbell plays his part well, the story is interesting, and the film plays out fine. Some of the characters are dull though, and there's a lot of slow moving scenes. The effects aren't great, but typical for a Sci-fi channel movie. Even as one of those films however, it's still a decent watch.

See it for Bruce Campbell.

It may not be the "Nail-biting thriller" it says it is, but Terminal Invasion is good old Bruce Campbell ass-kicking fun, and overall just low-budget fun.

Only a few directorial errors (that result in a few clunky lines) mar this excellent flick. I enjoyed it immensely. Campbell should do more serious roles like this.

This was clearly a direct to DVD release. It shows.

Its the Poor mans version of John Carpenter's The Thing. Which being said is decently delivered by the likes of See feee. Bruce Campbell is there to deliver some stunning dialogue but the aliens are rather drole with their words and no character other then bruce of noteworth.

Made for Sci-Fi channel, this stars Bruce Campbell, and comes from Sean S. Cummingham, the man behind the original Friday The 13th. With what amounts to little more than a remake of The Thing, in an airport terminal, it's surprisingly effective.

As convicted murderer, Jack, being transferred, Campbell gives a spirited performance, one devoid of lots of his usual schtick, which makes it even more impressive. With some good lines such as "You don't have to worry about who I killed before, just whom I'll kill next," he really owns it, and brings the movie some much needed, and surprising, gravitas. He doesn't do any slapstick, or make the tone any different than what it should be- dire, paranoid, and suspicious.

A few other stand outs include Chase Masterson, as the charter pilot, and female lead. She holds up well against the murderer, and proves to be quite tough. C. David Johnson as a businessman who spirals out of control is very well too. Rest of the cast is decent, with no one sticking out as particularly bad.

Cummingham navigates efficiently, and makes the most of a small budget. While he isn't the most impressive, he does hold the tension together nicely, and uses the small set in a few creative ways, like when they decide to go through the luggage scanner to prove they are human. The way he shoots it, just with a hard angle dividing those who have gone, and those you haven't, with the biggest objectors scattered across the upper half of the divide. It works well, and when the big reveal happens, he handles it well.

You don't have to worry about who I've killed before. Just worry about who I'm going to kill next.

Sub-par "Aliens disguised as humans" shlock that has been a thousand times before. Campbell snoozes his way through this, clearly not his usual wisecracking self. Luckily he's supported by one of the cute ones from Deep Space 9. Monster effects sufficiently slimy.

Bad scripting, bad acting, terrible directing.
