I love disaster films, even old ones, even bad ones, even bad old ones. This one though wasn't bad enough or cheesy enough to enjoy. It was just pathetic. It wasn't the WORST piece of garbage I've ever seen, those I won't even finish! I thought the special effects were OK - if it'd been say, 1990. For 2010 I expect more pizzazz and a lot more originality (and that was the GOOD part of the film).

The script was numbingly unoriginal, even predictable. Occasionally the dialog was too low to hear, and sometimes it was just read off woodenly, not always, but way too little feeling overall. Hello, Scriptwriter! Why'd you have those women stumble endlessly around in the desert? When they abandoned yet one more vehicle it was yawn-time.

I'm afraid I have never really thought about the criteria that makes a good actor, but I have the sense that it wasn't here. I think part of the fault lies with the director who should help bring out the very best performance of each actor.

Editing sucked. At points the scene switches to another place for no reason, with no explanation (but, to be fair, this happens often in films).

The Stepmother/stepdaughter relationship was so artificial, eww[...]

The set used for the 'Military Base' was one of the few laughs in the film, walls looked like cardboard.

I can't think of a single moment that saves this movie that I'd want you to see. No Godzilla razing the city, no cow flying through the air, no cool costumes. Nothing.

Plan 9 From Outer Space now has a rival for the worst movie ever made. This movie is so bad that it actually may be worth watching for a laugh. There are so many glaring inconsistencies in plot, location, setting, time-line, and background that it is hard to believe it was not done on purpose. One example (and this should not be classified as a spoiler - nothing could spoil this movie any worse): the main character is shown on a space station one second before he blows it up with 8 nuclear bombs on board, and the inexplicably shows up alive after the event??? How many telephone poles can crash down on a car to necessitate searches for new vehicles? Roads are totally empty until the plot needs more vehicles, and then suddenly there are a lot of cars. The area has been devastated, but in a scene from high on a launchpad, the area and traffic in the background shows normal everyday life. Pathetic special effects are laughable. It appears the director had taken the script into the bathroom with him and mistakenly exchanged it with the toilet paper he had used.

This Movie was so bad that it doesn't deserve the 1 star I had to give it. If this movie had been made in the early 50s, there could maybe be some excuse for it. But it wasn't, and there is no excuse for making such a bad movie. I have seen science fiction made in the 50s that was much better than this. The other reviewers have already said everything that needs to be said. Don't waste your time or money.

Format: DVD
The box claims this event is caused by a star in a "nearby galaxy" going supernova when the movie claims it was from the constellation Lyra. Stars go supernova all the time. All they do is light up the sky for a while due to light passing through gasses near said star. However in this scenario of really bad science, the radiation comes to us in waves, ignoring dissipation through the inverse square law. Even if it did get here, it would could not cause earthquakes, or lightning, or tornadoes, at least without being powerful enough to destroy all life first. I am also confused by the idea that exploding atomic weapons by the magnetosphere would somehow enhance it. Perhaps this is some left over bad science from the movie "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea." Curse you Michael Ansara! While driving his family to the base in a black GMC SUV, the Bruce Krause is encountered by an identical SUV which pulls up along side of him and shoots at his head point blank with an automatic weapon. Bruce verves off the road into the desert. The vehicle is unmarked by the gunshot. After driving through bad desert, he comes back on the highway in front of the other SUV! They give chase shooting all the way. The family runs away on foot, only to get met by guys with bad Iranian accents. They get killed in a nick of time.

Bruce gets separated from his family. At the base he meets a Chinese scientist who develops an accent as the story moves along and a man with a bozo hair-do with a bad Russian accent. While they are attempting to save the planet, there is someone in his group that is trying to stop the doctor from doing so. Meanwhile the wife and daughter are back at home searching for a necklace in the kitchen of all places.

Every once in awhile a movie comes along that's `so bad it's good'. We all know the types of movies I'm talking about. `Plan 9 From Outer Space' was so terrible on every level, and was cheesier than all the cheese in Wisconsin combined, that it was hard *not* to be entertained by it. Same with movies like `Evil Dead', starring Bruce Campbell, a movie that certainly had a low budget, cheesy special effects, but the movie (unlike the sequel, which was more along the lines of a comedy, and a good one at that) had some genuinely creepy moments, such as when the first character (can't remember her name) was possessed. The acting was at least half way believable, and the setting was indeed foreboding and ominous. You walked away from the movie with the feeling that they were at least trying.

Then there are the movies like this one, ones that are so bad that they`re...well, bad. As in, terrible acting. As in, deep, yawning chasms in the plot, plot holes big enough for the Milky Way Galaxy to fit through.

Before I go any further, I'd like to pontificate for a moment about what makes a good movie a good movie, at least in my opinion. If there are any aspiring movie-makers out there who might be reading this, pull up a chair, get comfortable, and start taking notes. Here are some very basic rules for making an entertaining movie:

#1: Big budget films are often overrated, that's a fact. Case-in-point, the movie 2012 starring John Cusack. It had billion-dollar special effects, with a $0.15 script. (I covered that movie in another review) The special effects were awesome, really, but the over-the-top, bullcrap heroics, and the plausibility of a person pulling off such a stunt in real life just killed the movie. KILLED it.
