Movie Review by Derringer
April 15th, 2010


Blast off into orbit with this classic Sci-Fi Invasion Flick, featuring some truly remarkable flying saucer effects courtesy of RAY HARRYHAUSEN.

EARTH VS. THE FLYING SAUCERS pits puny, little earthlings against mighty alien humanoids in a violent battle for Earth's survival.

When the robot-like aliens arrive at a U.S. Army base in search of help for their dying planet, they attempt to make friendly contact with scientist Dr. Russ Marvin. But the military gets into the act and greets their fleet of saucers with non-stop gunfire, and so, the aliens are automatically forced to retaliate.

Can Dr. Marvin invent the ultimate weapon in order to counter their terrible attack of mass destruction and save the human race in this deadly game of beat-the-clock?

Well, buckle up and hold onto your seats, space fans, 'cause you're in for an intergalactic joyride of pure Sci-Fi/Fantasy fun, 1950s-style!

Shot mainly on location in Washington, DC, this picture would be best described as being a cross between INDEPENDENCE DAY and MARS ATTACKS! (on a considerably smaller scale, of course). It's quite easy to imagine both Directors EMMERICH and BURTON being inspired by this film for their respective pictures.
