ALIEN SNIPERESS (2022) Sci-Fi Action Horror Reviews

“One shot, one kill for humanity”
Alien sniper is a 2022 American sci-fi horror-action film about an off-duty female soldier who encounters a hostile alien invasion. Also known as Alien sniper.

Written, produced, photographed and directed by Joseph Mbah (Battlefield 2025; Exhibition; Origins of Krampus; Genesis: Fall of the Crime Empire). Executive produced by Tim Warren.

The Paradox Universe-Green Apple Productions film stars Olivia Okoro, Sean Laguna, Doug Savage, Sean Dillingham, Bourke Floyd, Camille Kerber and Alaina Laethem.

Review:
Apparently, Alien sniper has several things against it, not the least of which is the use of a nonexistent word in its title! But at a time when so many filmmakers use overly generic (The Cursed) or bland (Trip) one-word titles that make their movies hard to find online, perhaps it’s a welcome bonus. Other obvious downsides are the film’s low effects budget and limited locations (a press conference in what looks like a school hall being particularly low), the latter being a problem when the plot involves an alien invasion. world.

Nevertheless, Alien sniper manages to talk about its humble origins and introduce a few characters the viewer can really care about, frantically shot action sequences that actually work, and some welcome parasites of the old-school Cronenenbergian variety. A strong black female lead that isn’t entirely cliché is also a bonus. The only minor downsides are the slightly too long running time which results in a few lulls here and there and some dodgy songs that feel shoddy.

Other reviews:

“The Danny Takacs static and gunshot effects are convincing enough and the CGI spaceship and muzzle flashes, while not great, are a cut above an Asylum or Mark Polonia movie […] Quickly paced and well done, Alien sniper was an unexpected treat…” 3.5/5 Voice from the balcony
