Empire - Dan Jolin
Mostly harmless. A very British, very funny sci-fi misadventure that's guaranteed to win converts.

The Hollywood Reporter - Michael Rechtshaffen
Hits the screen with its disarmingly droll spirit quite intact.

L.A. Weekly - Chuck Wilson
This very funny, very British movie -- directed by newcomer Garth Jennings -- has sci-fi effects that are impressive yet appropriately cheesy.
70
Variety - Unnamed
More smile-inducing than laugh-aloud funny.
63
ReelViews - James Berardinelli
Boasts a strong ensemble of performances. Martin Freeman is the perfect choice for an ordinary, unheroic Earth guy.

A truly mad concoction, blending 1950s juvenile delinquents, sci-fi melodrama, song-and-dance, and a touch of horror, everything in just the right combination to create an engaging big screen spectacle! This curious and curiously entertaining story involves one Jonathan Xavier and his devoted misfit gang who, incidentally, have been exiled to Earth from the far reaches of outer space. Johnny's former girlfriend Bliss has left him and stolen his Resurrection Suit, a cosmic, mind-bending uniform that gives the owner power over others. Along the way, there will be several highly stylized musical numbers, lots of genuinely humorous dialogue, and a wacky plot-twist or two, all beautifully captured on the very last of Kodak's black-and-white Plus-X film stock.
