It was completely different from the movie yesterday in the obvious way that they are showing you what the aliens look like and there was actualy a space ship in the movie. I dont think this worked as well as the movie yesterday, i think its down the the movie yesterday being more about why the aliens are there and the was more suggestion over action in the movie, which i think works far more in the older movies.
You can surely tell that this is the grandad of all those epic sci-fi movies to come.
The acting was really bad, but i suppose this is expected from a movie of its time. The funny thing is though, the special effects actualy wernt that bad, they definatly make up for the poor acting.
Im not really sure what else i have to say about this film really, its just one of those movies i suppose, its not amazing watching it in a modern time, but when the movie was released im sure it was a hit.
