A Venerable Inception

Perspective is what makes this film worthwhile; by perspective, I mean that, at the time, the Red Scare was receding, but was still very real for many Americans all across the country. This film symbolized that blatant fear in more prospects than the singular, the main idea being that the merits of communism, would convert every free-thinking human being into a mindless automaton. In a contemporary sense, this film still holds emotional weight, as the characters imagined during the plot itself form a bond with you, as well as with one another, forcing you to care about the imminent calamity that would strike their own small town and, eventually, the entire planet.

Sci-fi classic low on gore and heavy on suspense.

This movie is a beloved sci-fi classic. Like most of the other sci-fi movies of the fifties, this movie is low on gore, sex and language and it is harmless. But however this movie was not intended for younger kids. It could make them paranoid and fear that other people are aliens. The plot may also be too complicated for a younger kid to understand. The movie does have some good role models however. A man tries to warn other people of the aliens and he tries to save them.

THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE 1978 REMAKE. Very graphic for a PG rating.

My rating: PG-13 [borderline with R] for some disturbing images, nudity, violence and gore. Positive Messages & Role Models: 0.5/5 - Very few can even remotely be considered positive. Violence: 4/5 - Infrequent (unless you count the pervasive discussion), but when it comes up, it's intense. Most noticeably, disturbing and gross images of bodies wrapped in foam; and a scene in which a man graphically axes through the head of a man who has been abducted, with blood shown. Sex: 3.5/5 - Bodies wrapped in foam show exposed breasts, though not graphically. Also, in the last few scenes, a woman walks around completely nude, and we see her from the waist up. Milder examples, also, such as a few brief kisses. Language: 1.5/5 - Nothing stands out. Consumerism: 0/5 - No problem. Drinking & Drugs: 1/5 - Nothing noticeable.
