If you meet someone who claims to be a film buff and they don't know who Bruce Campbell is, then they are not a film buff! They are a deluded idiot, and you should cease talking to them immediately. Bruce Campbell is a legend. If you don't agree, then please refer to my original statement. Now, admittedly the "Chinster" has made some bad movies, in fact he has made some terrible movies, but one thing you can bet on is that Bruce will always great in them.
In Alien Apocalypse, Bruce and his companions crash land back on Earth after forty years of floating about in space in hypersleep. When they land back on earth they find that the planet has been taken over by aliens and they are immediately captured and forced to work as slaves. Bruce & Co. manages to escape and hitch up with some freedom fighters, before trying to take back the planet.
The first half of the movie was really enjoyable, but falters when Bruce meets up with the freedom fighters. For Bruce fans this is definitely worth a watch, but new comers might be put off. For them I would recommend the brilliant and hilarious `Man With The Screaming Brain'.
