"Alien Warrior" is a low-budget movie that manages to combine a messianic "alien warrior" with a lot of fistfights, gunfights, nudity, drug-dealing, and gangs. The movie is a strange mix of an After-School Special and a 70s action movie. In fact, the movie crams more characters and subplots into 100 minutes than half-a-dozen bad movies do. This alone makes the movie interesting.

Some twists:
* The hero relives the violence that he has inflicted upon others.
* The Pachucos that are turned from their evil ways do *not* have happy endings. They still make poor, violent choices and revert to their previous behaviors, albeit for a good cause.
* Corrupt policemen are *not* caught and punished.
* The Space Shuttle program is an inspiration for one of the street kids

Some oddities:
* Not one but two attempted sexual assaults on the lead female
* Lots of martial arts
* Break-dancing
* A driller-killer

This movie has stereotypes: black pimps, black drug dealers, Pachucos with fancy cars, etc. This may be offensive to some.

While "Alien Warrior" can not be taken too seriously, it does mirror life in many ways. Few loose ends are tied up, and life goes on. The ending is not completely satisfying, but it fits the movie perfectly.

Having worked on the movie as a production assistant in 1984, I can safely say this is a film in the spirit of Ed Wood. My chief memory is working late at night on skid row in downtown LA wondering if the security guard would really come to our aid if something happened (and also wondering about what, exactly, the producer of this film was using to keep him so hyped up late into the night).
I saw if recently on television and was amazed that it was worse than I thought it would be. So, break out some popcorn and invite the friends over for this none to subtle reworking of Starman meets Hercules (well, the guy kinda looks like he should be in one of those bad Italian movies from the 50's and early 60's).

no one could have actually made this movie. i refuse to believe it exists. no one on earth would consciously write this script-- not even on accident. i mean i've watched as much of this movie as i can but i refuse to believe its real. i stole my vhs copy from blockbuster's dumpster--i think it was planted by aliens. "i must defeat great evil." "is great evil over there?" I'm serious, this movie goes beyond stupidity, into realms even genius can t touch.

Is it worth watching? well, it is certainly mind boggling; there's tons of gratuitous nudity; plenty of nice 80s style car explosions (did every one in the 80s drive around with napalm and dynamite in the back seat? -- must've been the pinto influence) and violence, yeah how do i even describe the fight sequences? they're definitely very,, sequential. i mean punch, block counter punch, it all seems to be there, even when a direct hit misses by about 40 feet, in slow motion, just so you won't miss how bad it is.

but that doesnt begin to really describe what this movie is all about: its an alien prince (from another planet mind you) who comes to earth a planet so far away that the earth is as small as,, a really huge moon in its sky. the alien (who names himself buddy) comes here to defeat a great evil (any evil, he's not real picky) so he'll feel secure enough in his manhood to rule his father's empire. And he's got psychic powers. and a bum builds him this insanely cool car. and theres lots of naked chicks involved. i mean ALOT of naked chicks. so alien boy starts a gang. and a community library--with the help of his newly reformed latino rapist friends. and starts fight ing great evil, all with the eloquence of rain man.

Neither Lawrence Fishburne, nor any other Fishburne is actually in this film. The lead black actor is named Reggie De Morton. The film was originally released in the late 1980s as "Alien Warrior" with the correct actors listed on the video jacket, but then when it was re-released in the mid 1990s the distributors put a picture of Reggie De Morton on the cover along with catch phrases which hinted that Lawrence Fishburne was a part of the film. It seems they figured that all black people looked alike, and apparently Amazon.Com has fallen for the con so much so that they now spread this false advertisement as well.
