Reviews
Mine: Fun because it keeps moving and does not really let you think about how many holes there are in the story.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Spectacular--and spectacularly stupid--sci-fi saga of alien ships hovering over the earth and apparently planning to attack. U. S. President Pullman tries to determine how best to fight, as the stakes keep changing on an hour-to-hour basis. Big, Oscar-winning special effects are impressive, but the human stories are so dumb, the writing so lame, and some of the performances so broad they make some silly 50s sci-fi movies look brilliant by comparison. 15m. added for special edition. Super 35.
