Considering the other-worldly success of Star Wars and Close Encounters, it comes as no surprise that filmmakers are madly trying to clone them. But this piece of trash has neither the naive low-budget charm of the UFO films of the ’50s nor the technical wizardry of 1977’s box office biggies. To top it off, you’ve seen it all before—the Bad Aliens are out to colonize the earth and the Good Aliens want to defend “the progress of civilization.” Pointy-chinned Robert Vaughn just wants to forget the whole thing. Though there’s some intergalactic whooshing about, it’s strictly Dark Ages stuff compared to the Big Two. (PG)
