3.0 out of 5 stars Fast Paced Revenge Story 30 Jan 2002
This is a fast paced science fiction horror film with a lot of action. It may be a recent edition to the dvd collection, however it is a very old film, and simple budget techniques are used. The storyline itself could be said to be a little confusing. In a faraway space station prison, a commander (Jan Michael Vincent) prepares to execute a galactic villian Kol (Ross Hagen). This is to be the revenge of the commander for all the pain he has suffered at the hands of the evil man who slaughtered thousands in his time. However, luck lies on the side of the villian, and a visiting general finds the capitol punishment cruel and unnecessary, and Kol escapes. The commander must once again hunt down the enemy across the galaxy in the hopes of bringing him to justice and avenging the deaths of his loved ones.
The film stars Jan-Michael Vincent, John Philip Law, P.J. Soles, Dawn Wildsmith who all play reasonabley good roles.
The film is directed by Fred Olden Ray who directed a whole host of entertaining science fiction and horror films, from Deep Space and Armed Response in the 80s, to Inner Sanctum and Caged Fear in the 90s.
The downfall of this film is it has no special features, and only lasts for 90 mins, which might suggest another dvd title would give you better value for money.
Regardless of that fact, I award Alienator a solid * * *

1.0 out of 5 stars aaaaargh!! 11 Feb 2004
Format:VHS Tape
it was billed as the ultimate terminator, but it was the ultimate in mind numbing naffness.
Jan michel Vincent makes a fleeting appearence at the beginning and end and looks uncomfortable or even embarrassed to be there.
its full of very cheap nasty effects and a headache inducing sound track coupled with a lazy plot that makes you wish the so called heroes of the film would hurry up and die so you can watch something more interesting, like the test card.
dont waste your time or your money on this. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

1.0 out of 5 stars Simply Awful! 8 Jan 2007
By Dave
With wooden acting, poor sets, and the most ridiculous "killer android", (a female bodybuilder with a glam rock big hair wig), the best thing about this film is the end credits! The storyline, characters, acting and special effects in any of the "Trumpton" stories will knock spots off this rubbish! Save your money, and buy pretty well any other DVD you want - it is guaranteed to be better than this trash!

1.0 out of 5 stars Another waste of time 25 Jan 2013
By Harvey Wren Jr. - Published on
Vincent should have just stayed in retirement since his acting only got worse over time. The story line was worthless and of course there were no decent effects. Don't waste your time unless you're just a big Vincent fan for some crazy reason.

... and it didn't quite get there. Fortunately, I watched it for free on TV ... but it cost me time in my life that I can never recover ... far too expensive!

5.0 out of 5 stars Alienator is the film equivalent of getting caught with the front by Jan Michael Vincent 7 Sep 2010
By Sid the Elf - Published on
With a nice holiday Monday off there is really no better way then to hit up a little late night Sunday B, especially when you have a 9:30 tee time with Santa the next morning. Perusing through some on demand choices proved to be a great choice yet again when we came across the straight to video release known (or not know) as Alienator. After reading the synopsis we were hooked with no knowledge of Michal Jan Vincent being the main role. After about 10 minutes in when he strolled on the set and gave his first line we were absolutely floored with laughter. Now this was before he had his motorcycle accident so he actually didn't look freakish but still had that drunk sounding delivery where you have to rewind just to understand his dialogue. Throughout the movie he delivers nothing outside of one liners....and very poor ones at that. If you can sit through this movie without stomach pains from laughter then you must lack a soul.

O.k this is where you get rammed with a brief synopsis so we ask that you try and follow despite the abnormally confusing premise. Alienator starts off with a toy space ship flying through space inhabited by commander/warden Jan Michael Vincent while on their way to execute an inmate named Kol. On their journey Kol breaks free and forces a shootout with lazer guns (you will not believe these special effects) leaving a few of the space officers dead. Kol then hi-jacks a different toy spaceship and sets sail for planet earth where he meets some horrible acted teens. Now that Jan Michael Vincent has been pushed to the limit he sends the Alienator to earth the retrieve Kol. Somehow Kol builds a bond with the teens and they attempt to take on the alienator, who is nothing more then a beastly weightlifting chick wearing an 80's rocker blond wig. Did you follow any of that?

With Alienator being as confusing as the way we described it can only go one of two ways: 1) A complete nightmare that get's shut off after 20 minutes or 2) A hilarious entry into out vast B library that will never be forgotten. Thankfully for us and all of mankind it was option numero dos. This is a film that should be revered in a the B community the way the Godfather or Cassablanca is for the normal people. On top of all the awful acting, Jan Michael Vincent drunk sounding one liners, and insane special effects you have the fact that this bad boy started up things right from our favorite decade coming out in 1990. The only thing wrong with the Alienator is the fact that we're the only review here in the movies 20 year history.
