I bought this film 5 years ago and remembered having a reasonably good time watching it back then so decided to rewatch it on a lazy Sunday afternoon. A bit of an odd combination, we have an American old-time wild west setting and futuristic metallic bug creatures pitted against each other. And initially you wouldn't think there would be much chance for the humans as they only sport 19th century guns. For a lot of the time it kind of works, but the lack of technology does mean there are limited ways available to fight the bugs and the film does tend to drag quite a bit of the time.
This is one of the later 'Maneater Series' of films which seem to have a bit more money thrown at them than your average cheapie monster movie and this shows - the digital effects of the bugs are surprisingly good most of the time although the mother ship that arrives is less convincing.
It's great to see James Marsters in the lead role and he does a reasonably good job in the acting department - definitely the best of the bunch.
