    i heard part one is very gory but not a great film but the gore and brutal
    violence keeps you entertained also i just read some reviews stating that part 2 and part 3 are horrible pieces of trash that the only connection with the 3 films is the director thats it. Part 2 and 3 should be avoided.

    The first one is classic. The other two just used the name and if memory serves me right had nothing to do with the orginal story. I'm certain part was a total bomb.
     
  10. I never even heard of a third one either

    The first one is really cool. There is some decent effects and the story is kinda crazy. It even has some odd Miike moments only it spares you of the boredom of his films. I own the 2 disc R2 version. Although the picture quality isn't the greatest, it has two different versions which is the reason why I am not holding my breath for the Image version.

    Then there's Lethal Target, a T&A fest of sci-fi horror starring CC Costigan that - I'm not kidding - reuses every single special effects shot from Xtro II.

    There's a very good 2-Disc edition of Xtro from Germany. I got it through xploitedcinema.com

    Xtro II: The Second Encounter - This is one of the rare occasions that I disliked a movie on my second viewing. I mean, Xtro 2 was never a great film to begin with but back then I had more fun with it for some reason. Watching it now was a total bore and one can only wonder why Bromley Davenport decided to make a sequel at all. If it really was just for "the money" then I have to say "money badly spend". Another thing that puzzled me: why rip off Aliens in a sequel that supposed to be about Xtro?
    Ah well, at least Image gave this a damn fine presentation. Considering this was shot for the DTV market the 16:9 widescreen transfer looks very good.

    I always thought the first film was an allegory for divorce and the effect it has on the family.

    The director is an exceptionally affable man and the commentary on the DVD for "XTRO" explains how there can be sequels to the first film despite their plots being wholly different. He's also easy to find online if you want to talk to him.

    I believe it starred Rosie O'Donnell.
