(mx) wrote: Great Movie. Donnie Wahlberg's character is the polar exteme of Robert Forster's character but they are both likable and I enjoyed the movie alot.
(us) wrote: Boring film that tries to be heartwarming, but just ends up being cheesy
(it) wrote: I want to give a ton of love to this film but I can'tThat being said you can tell how the film has became a cult favorite. It's just a fun film and throwback to old cheap Sci fi. One cannot ignore the politics behind the movie as the govt controls us in real life.Roddy Piper is cheesy but fantastic as a drifter who discovers all is not as it seems in a sort of dystopian society.The plot is revealed pretty sudden and when the realization comes about that the world is inhabited with aliens the shock isn't there like you would think All that being said the movie is fun, the imagery is silly but still effective in a weird way. John Carpenter blends music and atmosphere beautifully and creates and eerie setting. I love how he does that.It's all 100 percent cult popcorn fun about a dystopian society, government control, and a pair of sunglasses that enable you to see aliens.How couldn't that be fun? I sure was intrigued without the eye rolling I thought I would have.
