"Independent UK cinema needs to be given a chance!"
INVASION PLANET EARTH director, Simon Cox on BBC Midlands today.

starburst - review - 8/10

Invasion Planet Earth  is an entertaining twist on the invasion theme that injects some thought about our planet and how we've messed it up. A science fiction film for our Extinction Rebellion era.

BRITFLICKS - Review 8/10

INVASION PLANET EARTH has that old fashioned thing that film makers used to have called, ‘vision!'

midlands movies - Review 8/10

The film doesn’t hold back by tackling global issues and inserting well-handled action sequences and a dash of drama into its narrative. Bask in Invasion Planet Earth's  remarkable ambitions which aim for the sky but actually hit the stars.

Vulture hound - review - 4/5

An achievement in itself. This is the sort of low budget science fiction film that deserves to be seen.

blazing minds - review - 4/5

Fan of science fiction will really love this movie!

film stories - review - 3/5

There’s a pretty set path for low budget sci-fi movies that, to its credit, Invasion Planet Earth wilfully ignores.

The guardian - review - 2/5

Ludicrously Ambitious Low Cost Sci-Fi!

film & tv now - review - 3/5

INVASION PLANET EARTH is a mix of influences, from its’ BUCK ROGERS opening coupled with SPACE 1999-style music and the subtext of Tarkovsky’s classic 1972 film SOLARIS. Some decent CGI FX, the spirit of ATTACK THE BLOCK and INDEPENDENCE DAY.
