An excellent treatment of a familiar story
Of course the story told by this film (aliens land in small Mid-West
town and start taking over the humans) is very familiar but it is still
a great story and this film tells it as well as any of the others (and
better than most). There is a lot of humour, many very good action
scenes, and some really nail-biting suspense. But what really makes
this film special are the main characters: a delightful group of funny
and interesting students, who have to cope with the trials of
high-school life as well as the demands of defending the Earth against
an insidious alien invasion.
If you know the other films of Robert Rodriguez (Desperado, From Dusk
Till Dawn) you will find another film which displays the same wit and
assured lightness of touch that makes this director's work such a
