Cheesy But Fun

“"They Live" is cheddar cheese, Swiss cheese, Brie Cheese, topped by a great terrible performance by pro wrestler "Rowdy" Roddy Piper as the unnamed shotgun-toting protagonist. "I'm here to chew bubblegum and kick ass. And I'm all out of bubblegum." Yes you are, Rowdy, and never has such a line, so daringly uttered, struck such fear into the hearts into cadaver-faced extra-terrestrials as this.

Rowdy plays a wandering laborer, who finds himself living in a little shanty-town in LA. When police storm the place, Roddy finds a box of sunglasses. One look through a pair of these sunglasses, and Roddy can see that everything's a lie... aliens have taken over the world right under our noses and are systematically brainwashing us with subliminal messages such as 'Obey,' Watch TV,' and ” read more

“They Live is another cult favourite from sci-fi supremo John Carpenter. Based on the short story Eight O’Clock in the Morning by Ray Nelson, They Li”

"22.5. Ihan marginaalinen pettymys, koska yritystä tasapainoilla överitoiminnan ja kulutusyhteiskuntasatiirin välillä on sikäli liikaa, että jompaakumpaa kaipaisi lisää. Samoin aurinkolaseja. Silti oikein hupaisa toimintaparodia, jossa Roddy Piper ampuu avaruuden soluttautujia keskellä katua ja lausuu hyperkorneja onelinereita. Piperin ja Keith Davidin välinen tappelu on aivan mahtava ja kestää ikuisuuden. Katsojan ennakko-odotusten kustannuksella pilaillaan myös kiitettävästi."

"The plot for They Live is full of black holes, the acting is wretched, the effects are second-rate. - Richard Harrington, Washington Post Credibility isn't the problem with John Carpenter's They Live... but execution is. - Janet Maslin, New York Times The black-and-white visuals disturb for only so long, and while themes of indoctrination and conspiracy prove initially intriguing, the film quickly descends into fistfights and gunfire. - Geoff Andrew, Time Out "

"Kasarikulttiklassikko joka iskee ja toimii simppelillä juonellaan sekä upealla tunnelmallaan. Niinkuin tuossa Ircissä sen joku sanoi niin Carpenter on kasaripimputtelumusan kuningas. Yhden tuohon lauseeseen. Katso tämä helmi ihmeessä. "
