-Syfy channel's Invasion Roswell starts out quick... the aliens are attacking on all fronts and our stellar military heroes are trying to get an angle to defeating the mother ship.
But they can't pull it off. The greys come waddling up, surrounding our heroes, then... in a flash of blue light, the simulation is over.
The team was part of a response team training for the possible return of the aliens who came to Roswell back in the day.
But the feds no longer think they're needed, and the program is disbanded.
The next day, aliens show up.
Picture, if you will, how the movie Independence Day started out. AT this point, this is exactly how they played out the aliens showing up here on Earth.
Well, except in this case, the acting is severely flat. I'd think it almost takes talent to act this bad, doesn't it?
Imagine, if you will, civilians walking along, looking up, seeing giant alien ships in the sky, and continuing to walk along, as if nothing else is going on.
Yep... even the government folk characters are about as bland, I mean, calm as ever as they report multiple alien ships over all the major countries.
Hell, even in the midst of the global invasion, the aliens make a point to go to one person's house and blow it up. (And now we take a break from this planet invasion to blow up a single house!)
The cast of characters even has a guy who was previously abducted by aliens, is a little crazy and knows how to fly.
Yep, this movie seems to have borrowed directly from the Independence Day movie script to fill out the meat of the story and has become your standard Syfy style TV popcorn movie, with the standard schlock effects, sketchy writing, and thin characterizations.
That takes talent to take a good movie story and flatten it this way!
Invasion Roswell stars Greg Evigan and Denise Crosby, the only validity of acting in the movie, though to be honest, even Crosby seemed to be mailing in her performance.
This isn't an Asylum production, because it's not on their website.
But this movie is so bad that Syfy hasn't even put it on IMDb. Neither have Evigan or Crosby. They probably didn't want to see the horribly low user ratings the movie would get.
But hey, with enough beer and friends, Invasion Roswell could be another fun movie night.
