Another OUTSIDER stars and ,maybe is More sincere ?
27 October 2005 | by guestar57See all my reviews

Would have preferred the title, INVASION,You guys could have avoided some headaches. C. Thomas Howell steals the film, As he should being it's star. Jake Busey is awesome as a psycho military type. Rhett Giles gave a performance his fans have wanted since day one of his career. Didn't understand having Peter Greene show up at all,and was feeling very cheated by his whole single scene. Almost seems like a Sci-Fi channel buddy flick,Or a modern Greek tragedy with alien attack gore.All in all,I would say this Outsider kicked Alien Butt.I picked the order of these reviews by box art and the back of box description, Now I'm thrilled it's played out that way.
