1966 western or should I say a parody of the formula of a western. Even the actors intro themselves by real name as if they are playing rolls and not trying to get you to believe the story as a real buy-in. Entertaining. If you like b movies. Jack Lord leads. Not quite Hawaii 50. Pretty good for 00 minutes.
How many times did I almost get up and leave? I'd say three. I've seen this show before, time and time again. Throw in a plot that combines Independence Day, District 9, and Black Hawk Down and you got this one. Even the script was rehashed from previous shows. Only the location was new, Santa Monica, which probably saved a lot of money as the city is known for it's movie production companies.
Forget what the critiques say. If you like plot twists, science fiction, and a love story built into an energized film you have to see this one. Special effects build throughout the movie as do the twists. You'll swear you've seen this one before but you haven't. Have fun with this one.
