Alien Outpost (2014) (NR)- Official Trailer
Then, six months later, in wee hours of the morning, Alien Outpost (2014) graces my Netflix browser. It was kismet.
Easy. Starship Troopers (1997) with a dab of District 9 (2009), right? Kinda. Minus a steady barrage of special effects, which some might see as boring, but don’t forget, it worked in Jaws (1975). Now, to compare this film to so many others may be excessive, but the reason is not without point. In feel, it has the earmarks of other alien/action flicks. Though the message may have been missed by the spectacle.
I enjoyed Alien Outpost for what it was. The acting can be spotty at times and the effects sparse, but they were trying something on a budget. Would I give it a second viewing? Not right away, but maybe. Rainy Sunday, take a break from your binge re-watch of X-Files and pop this on. The truth will still be out there when you go back.
