Plot

A group of tenants in an apartment block are being forced to move out so that it can be demolished. The tenants are reluctant to move, so the developers hire a local gang to 'persuade' them to leave. Fortunately, visiting alien mechanical life-forms come to town. When they befriend the tenants, the aliens use their extraterrestrial abilities to defeat the developers.

Movie: C+DVD: B * batteries not included C+/B 2.11.00 1.85:1/5.1 First Viewing Anamorphic Widescreen It's a cross between Cocoon and E.T. but doesn't live up to either.The story is too cute at times, yet no where does a single young child appear in the film.The DVD looks and sounds fine, but the only extras are production notes.
