Alienoids is an action-packed mystery in several genres packed into just over two hours. What looks like multiple stories intertwined over various historical periods turns out to be, well, we can’t say without giving away the story.
Instantly, we get hooked by the introduction that aliens use human bodies as a prison. It’s been this way for centuries. Time-traveling aliens round up criminals in time, who escape their hosts and place them in new hosts in a different era.
These wardens of the prison planet we call Earth find themselves caring for a child they raise as their own, but not before experimenting on her.
There’s magic, time travel, aliens, sword fights, spaceships, escape plans, and a plot to destroy our planet with humans unaware of the danger in our midst.
Alienoids is executed with the grandeur we expect from Asian period pieces and the spectacle we expect from the current superhero blockbusters in theaters. It’s a good time that leaves you wanting more.
Our score is nine out of ten.
Alienoids releases on DVD on December 6th. Reserve, your copy, today.
