FROM 10 Jul
These films - 'Dr. Who and the Daleks' and 'Daleks: Invasion Earth 2150 A.D'. - are timely reminders that the ever-impressive Daleks are truly one of science fiction’s greatest alien creations.
Dr. Who and the Daleks: Not only does this film have a sound moral, but also a quaint Flash Gordon charm because of its fanciful sets, Cushing, Hammer's reliable Baron Frankenstein, is properly whimsical, and Gordon Flemyng's amiable direction wisely avoids camp.
Daleks: Invasion Earth 2150 A.D: The sequel moves from Skaro, home world of the Daleks, to earth in ‘Daleks: Invasion Earth 2150 A.D.’ It has a semi-sumptuous widescreen look, a nice sense of World War II reconfigured as sci-fi adventure, memorable theme music, a splendid flying saucer in Sloane Square and excellent action scenes.
