We dig our Alien abduction/invasion movies around here, so it’s nice when the SyFy Network takes a break from films like Sharknado (which I refuse to see) and Sharktopus and actually focusses on “Sci-Fi” a little. While the CGI budget reminds you that Invasion Roswell is every inch a SyFy production, it’s got a refreshing lack of marine life on display.
“After the American Army shot down a UFO in 1947, generations of elite commandos were secretly trained to deal with the aliens’ feared return. However, the extra-terrestrials never came back and the elite force was disbanded. Sixty-six years after the Roswell crash, the aliens are invading Earth and only the over-the-hill retired commandos can stop them.”
The film stars Greg Evigan (“Melrose Place”) and Denise Crosby (Pet Sematary, “Star Trek: The Next Generation”) and was written by Jackson Stewart (“Supernatural”) and Berkeley Anderson (“Grendel”). It was directed by David Flores (Lake Placid 2).
