Following on from the events in V: The Mini Series,
the resistance are still attempting to overthrow the mysterious
visitors. From the birth of the first interspecies child to
a harrowing countdown to alien invaders mankind lives on a
knife's edge. Will the rebellion succeed, or be crushed?...
The Final Battle is
an impressive piece of television history. First broadcast
in 1984 this series has everything. If you are after giant
spaceships, laser gun battles, psychological brainwashing,
inter-species propagation and an eerie soundtrack (composed
by Dennis McCarthy who went on to compose music for Star
Trek: The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine and Voyager)
then you won't be disappointed.
the cast are Marc (Beastmaster) Singer, Robert (A Nightmare
on Elm Street) Englund and Michael (Scanners, Total Recall
& Starship Troopers) Ironside. Also appearing briefly
is regular Trek extra Dick (Gremlins) Miller.
show's themes of fascism, rebellion, the fight for survival
and the concerns for the depletion of the Earth's natural
resources are as fashionable today as when the series was
first broadcast - shame the same can not be said about the
clothes and hairstyles featured.
picture quality for The Final Battle is nice and crisp
and has even been transferred to widescreen with a Dolby Digital
you are after quality storytelling and some impressive (if
a little dated) special effects then you will love this.
