Synopsis: the Daleks’ invasion of Earth, 2150 A.D.

My reaction
Concept:3/4 (Good)
Story:0/4 (Terrible)
Characters:0/4 (Terrible) Nope, no characters.
Dialog:2/4 (Indifferent) No Dalek monologues! Yay!
Pacing:1/4 (Bad) Not nearly as boring as the first movie, but it still feels very long.
Cinematography:2/4 (Indifferent) The wonderfully colorful look of the first movie is replaced by standard B-movie visuals.
Special effects/design:1/4 (Bad) It’s a nice enough flying saucer, I guess, if you like plastic models hanging from strings. (I admit it, I do.)
Acting:2/4 (Indifferent)
Music:4/4 (Great)
Subjective Rating: 3/10 (Bad, 1/4 (Bad)). It’s a significant improvement on the first movie. You might describe it as zany or, perhaps, madcap. But that’s mostly thanks to the shamelessly silly score; otherwise, it’s a crappy, crappy movie.
Objective Rating (Average):1.6/4 (Eh)
