First part so poorly edited and segued, it could have been done by a not so good amateur. Some pretty dresses though -- and that's it except that the two major players are very good looking.

This one in particular tries to string along a blatant environmentalist message that, I suppose, is typical of the 90's. But here, the characters are so shallow and one-dimensional, it makes the "big oil is bad" message seems all the more obvious. The special effects are lame, the story is borderline stereotypical, and overly paced for what it is, and the action scenes are too far apart. You'd have to be a complete idiot to fall for this movie.

(fr) wrote: What's great about the 50's sci-fi era is that there's an overabundance of movies made of this type and you're likely never to run out of things to watch - if that's your thing. It's not really mine, but I try to be fair and give everything a shot. Basically everything that came out after The Day the Earth Stood Still is either a rip-off or an echo of it, and Devil Girl From Mars is no different. Despite that, it actually manages to be at least a mediocre effort. Things are set up early on and paid off later, the characters all actually have something to do in the story and the effects are decent without really being amazing. The biggest draw to the movie, in my opinion, is Patricia Laffan as Nyah the female alien. Intentionally or not, she comes off as a dominatrix who in the story is looking for men to bring back to her planet for procreation. Now that sounds very juvenile, but the characters don't care for the idea of going back with this lady, even though she is kind of sexy if you ask me. The movie doesn't really go anywhere and they made the alien way too menacing and indestructible for the story, but whatever. It's not a bad movie and it's pretty well-made so check it out.

This didn't seem to connect to the Exorcist story at all, except for maybe the last 20 minutes. Sitting through the last hour of this movie was incredibly painful, and I had to stop numerous times because I just got too bored.

Sure there are some moments, my favourite being the restaurant scene but its predictable as all hell and I dunno but I was starting to feel for the "other guy". I don't think that's supposed to happen.... know what I mean?.... I also enjoyed Dempsey with all of his dates, spouting the "rules"... thought that was funny, but not laugh out loud, just amusing enough to chill out & chuckle to.
(de) wrote: The plot is a little silly - teenagers vs crooks in postwar London, but Alastair Sim is in it and he's always worth watching. And the sets are phenomenal -- the streets of bombed out London immediately after the war (released 1947, probably shot in '46). I had to think of Germany Year Zero, made at the same time in bombed out Berlin and also starring a gang of young boys. But instead of a lighthearted comedy, it's a dire tragedy. There's a kid in the British film that speaks only in sound effects, and the sounds he makes are sirens, bombs falling, doodlebugs, more sirens - chilling.
