GLOBAL INVASION REVIEWED
“Global Invasion” spotlights four films that look like SyFy would pass on them. Basically, it’s four tales of low grade actors fighting aliens invading or aliens that have already infiltrated society. Tom Sizemore is the only major star in these films, but everyone knows why he’s doing these features. Lot Lizards. I’ll hold for the few readers that will get the joke.
But, what else is going on here? Like a ton of the Mill Creek DVD releases, it feels more like creating a compilation out of obligation. I don’t see how these films would get a home video release outside of this. Oh well, it’s a rental to the curious.
