Earth vs. the Flying Saucers A.K.A. Invasion of the Flying Saucers, Flying Saucers from Outer Space (1956)

An American science fiction directed by Fred F Sears with special effects by Ray Harryhausen.
UFOs appear, but because of miscommunication, they become a threat and the military fights them.
Stupid! The plot was typical of the time and genre: peaceful aliens are greeted by violent humans and turn to violence. The solution to the problem was absolutely brilliant too: Using magnets to crash the saucers right down on your stupid heads. The characters were so shallow they were like cardboard cutouts. There were some visual effects, but Harryhausen is known for doing much better things than this. The audio was horrendous! The flying saucer and death ray sounds got annoying very quickly. Overall, a piece of crap. I rate this bad. DO NOT WATCH!!!
