Intended as the start of a new franchise, with a second film already in production, Occupation is a slick but generic sci-fi shoot-’em-up. Fresh out of prison, Peter Bartlett (Temuera Morrison) and his family are taking a holiday when aliens land and start blowing things up; the survivors head into the woods and quickly form an immediately competent armed resistance. It’s adequate but utterly disposable action fare, and the baddies are basically hench Greys in Power Ranger suits.
Extras None. Will Salmon
