" At 8:44 A.M., a full scale military invasion by foreign troops begins. Total surprise. Almost total success...The next day, a gang of high-school kids become our last line of defense. From out of the sky, Soviet, Nicaraguan, and Cuban troops begin landing on the football field of a Colorado high school. In a few seconds, the paratroopers have attacked the school and sent a group of teenagers fleeing into the mountains. Armed only with hunting rifles, pistols, and bows and arrows, the teens"

Pros and Cons of Films: Vol. 2 (130 movies items)

"Pros: The Wolverines The Cold War atmosphere Small town Colorado as itโ€™s backdrop. The music score Cons: Itโ€™s overwrought, in its depiction of patriotism. Itโ€™s a very violent movie. How is this film, PG-13?"

Invasion films need an immediacy to them, as to place the audience in the film, to work. The first has that. It's hampered by outdated technology (there's a certain amount of static that you have to factor into these films), but it's solid enough and it does it's job; making the audience feel the impact.
