"This is a wonderfully psychedelic b-movie toxic-glow-in-the dark dream of a film. The aliens are exactky what they should be - all bug-eyes and ack-ack - and the buffonery of the human race around them all adds to the cartoonishness. Really great fun - with the best alien landing opener ever in a movie. Yes it gets daft - but at least it know it. Much better than Independence Day - which was just daft in the wrong way."
