Above: Is it just me or does this poster ruin the movie? The best part of the movie was the suspense of what the creatures are (never mind it was a huge disappointment). The point was it was a threat that we didn't know.
You can't see it here but this little guy is in a fishbowl. Yes, the ultimate threat to mankind as we know it and nemesis the the US army... is a mutant goldfish. Ooooooh scary.
Once again, keeping this guy hidden would have added so much to the film. But know for my biggest problem: Repetition
But Know for my biggest problem: Repetition.
I have seen some shows and films that reuse the odd scene but there so slight and disguised you don't recognise. But this film seemed proud of it! There is only so much a person can sit and watch the same soldiers and Pyjama guys running in the SAME hall. I understand budget constraints but others have to deal with that and they succeed.
But on a serious note: this had strong underlining references to 'the commies'. America was creating a super rocket to 'protect' themselves (yeah right). The aliens where here to sabotage it. Like the thought of the Reds sabotaging American weapons. Speaking of red is it a coincidence that Mars is the 'Red Planet'? I think not.
All in all I enjoyed 'Bodysnatcher' a hell of a lot more. This movie seemed silly, illogical and mundane. I won't criticize the 'dream' ending because it was new then but Wikipedia says the dream ending was removed from the British release. However it's wikipedia and they have no sources.
On an ending note:David really hates goldfish. There's no need to attack them.
