This production was recently shown on Dutch TV, the TV-guide announced it as a very poor Predator ripp-off. Since the original Predator is one of my favourites, I taped Xtro for later reference. One day waiting on a cable guy I decided to view it. It was a long wait, I can tell you that. The urge of pressing the FF button every second scene was so enormous that I had to give in. This piece of junk does not even qualify as a Cult-thing by any standard. There is nothing to laugh about and script/acting/screenplay/continuity are so poor that you wonder why in the hell garbage like this makes it on video and National TV!. Don`t waste your time on this one. Go rent the original Predator, find a big screen TV, some Dolby stuff and let that cable guy stand in the rain for an hour or two....

This movie was not bad, it was horrible! The acting was at best equivalent to that of a high school production. The special effects were by far the worst I had ever seen. If you could not tell that the alien is a puppet, then I am sorry for you. The movie was bad even by the Scifi Channel standards. The "Bad Guy" character is pretty much your standard villain who has a shallow disposition and crummy dialog, the same goes for the rest of the "marines". If our troop really were to act as they did in this film; then we would all be doomed. One of the only redeeming scenes was the "Alein Autopsy" scenes, the black and white with grain texture was by far the biggest expense to the budget; however, this scene is also has some of the worst alien acting in the movie.
YES I THINK THIS IS THE BEST XTRO FILM.
Xtro, was basically just a splatter film with huge imagination going wild and disgusting visual effects. Take the imagination away and you'll possibly have me hating it.
Xtro 2 - oh god where do I start. With acting so wooden you'd think they'd cast an entire Canadian forest for the roles and writing of the cheapest kind by 4 people.
Then we come to this. To be honest this is not a bad little monster movie, yes the visuals are bad. but if you take into account that it's independent then it's probably the best visuals I have seen for an indie film.
The acting was good aside from the actor that plays the old man. The writing is actually the best I have seen in these little films (better see more of Daryl Haney and Harrry Bromley Davenport working together).
So basically I prefer it to the other Xtro films. I hope this Xro 4 coming out is a step above this one and not a step down like Xtro 2.
