Thoughts on Occupation: Rainfall
Thoughts – Occupation: Rainfall is the sequel to Occupation which showed us the invasion happening, we pick up in the aftermath as we see how Earth has changed with the resistance looking to fight back with aliens on their side. This will have the big battles with the aliens having the big advantage with their weapons and technology. We see two main stories going on, one a secret mission with, while the other is preparing for the next big attack, even though both sides could see a peace between them. You can see other big brands have been borrowed from other invasion films, but does do enough to make sure it is an original idea. The film does have special effects with will keep everything in the world we know, with the creatures looking great despite having the CGI feel about them.
