At the time, the epic scale of this production was unprecedented. Those 50 motherships that hover over Earth's major cities anticipate Independence Day by more than a decade. The special effects and makeup are still awesome. Less so is the often-hackneyed dialogue. But thanks to their signature roles, the mostly no-star cast, most of whom would be reunited for a sequel and subsequent television series, have ensured themselves standing invitations to sci-fi conventions. Marc Singer is cameraman-turned-freedom-fighter Mike Donovan. Julie Parrish is a medical student-turned-rebel. Richard Herd is the aliens' supreme commander. Jane Bradler is Diana, the ravishing but ruthlessly ambitious alien science officer. Leonardo Cimino lends dignity to his heavy-handed allegorical role as a Holocaust survivor. Look for a pre-Freddy Krueger Robert Englund as one of the aliens.
The DVD is presented for the first time in widescreen format. Supplemental features include an amiable and enlightening director's commentary and a brief "making of" segment. --Donald Liebenson
The special effects were very well done and the acting was wonderful.
Like everyone else, I'm begging Warner Brother's to release the sequel as well as the TV series on DVD also... And just one last thing.
It is one of the coolest movies I own and is highly recommended for sci-fi fans and also anyone who likes a good story.
Great TV miniseries, I have yet to find a TV show or miniseries as entertaining as this one.
I remember staying up late on school nights to watch this when it originally aired... Read more
