Forgettable Garbage

I won't "spoil" the plot of this film because it's one that's both been over-used and done far better in a thousand other movies - the aliens have come to earth and forcibly moved in, mankind is on the run and down to pockets of resistance, including defected alien fighters. Sound familiar?

Yeah, well it is, and everything else about this movie should be too, only it's all too confused, rushed, poorly executed and incoherent for you to care. In fact, when thinking about what to write here, I found I really had to think to be able to remember anything memorable about this film at all. To start with, the dialogue is mumbled through so poorly that I (as a native English speaker) had real difficulty understanding what some of the actors were saying, and there's no subtitle option. Fortunately, not being able to hear what the actors are actually saying makes very little difference to the film, or ones "enjoyment" of it.

Unfortunately, the script (such as it is), and plot (if you can stretch the meaning of the word here) are really just vehicles to hang on the films action sequences, but no amount of CGI can cover up how cheap this all feels, with hover-vehicles obviously being cars with a lot of bits stuck to them, and acting so dry and wooden it feels like it might self-combust at any moment - which ironically would then provide a better visual than most of what's offered here.

The film tries its hand at comic relief - which it really shouldn't - and "deep and meaningful" morality questions, but both are so ham-fisted they're tragic. The morality piece was especially baffling when, after developing a bio-weapon that could tip the war back in humanities favour, the people I presume you're supposed to be vying for actually stage a coup to prevent its use, because "there are innocent aliens here too". I just looked on in disbelief - how did they find enough resistance fighters who cared so little about humanities survival? I mean, it was about half of them!

When you eventually come to the end of what feels like a 3 hour movie, you're then "treated" to the news that this is merely "Part 1"...at which point I said something profane and switched the TV off in anger. Do yourself a favour and remove any thought of watching Occupation Rainfall from your mind - you'll have a couple of hours to do something better, and your memories of the film will be exactly the same - non-existent.

I'm not sure where to start except that as the end arrived and finally the pain stops, you discover this is chapter 1 and there may be further amounts of pain to follow. So, the film starts with an explosion of CGI which clearly the technician loves doing, so much so that where it should have stopped, it carries on a further, what seems 30 minutes or so. As you watch the film it becomes apparent that the script is being written as it is being filmed with no one really knowing the story line. Some of the acting leaves you wanting to visit the toilet as it may be more entertaining! My wife and I both fell asleep or became distracted by other things at various stages of the film, I think this helped in turning it into a bit of a comedy because we certainly laughed at some of the scenes. Was it worth 99p rental, had I paid a pound and got the 99p back in change then yes!

A truly awful movie cheap special effects, terrible acting and no context to the story line or setting up of the characters. Disjointed and dull. Trying to be a mix of an alien invasion and star wars film but failed on every level - random action sequences with no context, random dialogue and random aliens everywhere - confused and terrible - do not waste your money - please can I have a refund and its 45 mins of my life wasted.
Loved the jet car hover things which were clearly a car with some fibreglass detailing and some big red lights for engines - truly terrible do not waste your time. films like this should never make it to Prime or be made in the first place.

Avoid at all costs.

I liked the wide range of Aliens, and Alien animals, unfortunately the Humans were all dreadful, and I didn't care at all when their city was destroyed.

I am not sure if this was episode seven of a series or something, if not they must be aiming to make a half dozen prequels to explain what on earth is going on in this one.

It is also a bit Mad Max.

I hope one day to see a good Australian film, this was not it.

Disappointing.

I am a huge Sci Fi fan but although the cgi and other visual effects were excellent, the script, and story arc were somewhat lacking. The actors were all very professional but - owing to the script and direction - failed to engage the viewer (me). The first film was lower budget (I assume) but far more engaging with regard identifying with the characters: and it was suspenseful. Not so this film; BUT, for those fans who love big explosions, relentless battles against the odds, and a foe with superior technology and weaponry, will most likely enjoy this sci fi offering.

The CGI is the only thing professional

Ultimately, this is a kinda boring, very predictable movie. The CGI is amazing and probably the best part of the movie. The aliens are lame, the typical poorly masked humans type. The movie completely lacks logic, common sense and the understanding of basic physics. (Big spaceship is sucking basically a huge underground military base up into the sky, but an alien with its weight of about 100 Kg is not being sucked up but about to fall down....) Unfortunately, it seems to me that professional CGI by now is much cheaper than pure common sense.
If you get as irritated by nonsense as I am, this movie is not for you.

I gave it 3 starts because the CGI and the big spaceships look awesome. Rest is total garbage.

The movie has no ending (it doesn't even have a storyline or decent script!) Just before the end credits scroll up, the words: Operation Rainfall... Chapter 1 pop up. Trust me after watching this huge stinking piece of cheese I'd be gobsmacked if there was a chapter 2 LOL! It's a shame because this film seemed to have a halfway decent budget I just wish they'd made something worthwhile watching with it.

Took a chance in watching this film as it had some good actors taking part. I would class this a B movie. Then to find when getting to the end of the film that it was only Chapter 1. I don't think I'm going to watch further chapters, one was enough.
Supposed to be a sifi movie but the props were second grade and so was the cgi.
If you like Sharknado then this film might be up your ally.
