Don't get duped!!!
on 18 July 2013
This is becoming quite a problem with Amazon just lately, I know it isn't their fault but they should be banning the sale of dvd's like this. This is an old zero budget film that came out in 2003 called "War of the planets" it is NOT a NEW sci-fi movie like the dvd case and release date will have you believe.
I have noticed quite a lot of films that are being re-named and repackaged as NEW movies on here. Hell's mouth is another one (Originally called parasite in 2004) Sharkzilla (which is Megalodon 2002) They all have one thing in common. They are all zero budget flops that have made as much money as they are going to, and someone is simply renaming and reselling them as new films, to trick fans into thinking it's a new movie and to rip them off for a second time.
For anyone interested in this particular film "Exodus, war of the planets and whatever they'll call it next year" It is dreadful, I watched it years ago and I felt ripped off back then. The acting is beyond bad, the sets look like something put together in the directors basement, the dialogue is, well, it almost seems like the actors were just speaking from the hip because most of it made no sense and the effects (what few there are) are atrocious. It's boring, has scenes of dialogue that just seem to go on forever and was a film that made me stick the director (Mike Conway) on my ignore list for any future films.
You'll forgive my anger then, when I saw this advertised on Amazon and thought "Great, this looks and sounds like a cool NEW little sci-fi film" Only to see Mike Conway's name attached to it. Then after a little digging, I realised it was the very same film I watched almost 10 years ago.
For all you horror and sci-fi fans on here looking for anything new to watch, take heed and do a little research first. Here's a hint, if you type in the movies name on IMDB and it doesn't find it, chances are that it has been released before under a different name and has been renamed and repackaged and sold on here as a NEW RELEASE.
