Battle in Space: The Armada Attacks (2021)

Battle in Space: The Armada Attacks is the latest offering from Uncork’d Entertainment. It is an anthology film featuring a series of sci-fi shorts directed by Andrew Jaksch, Lukas Kendall, Toby Rawal, Scott Robson, Sanjay F. Sharma. and Luis Tinoco. The film is set in 2420, after aliens and powerful space wizards enslaved human villages. Now a group of rebels organise a counter attack against their alien overlords by piloting fully loaded spaceships.

As the film opens we Doug Jones a s an alien overseeing what is happening in the universe, this leads into the first short where on a dystopian Eath we learn of the plight of street savy ex-cop Jack Dawkins (Andrew Troy)- a man looking for his daughter. He believes she has been taken by the aliens. Other seems to have had their children taken too. Infact we are informed that that the Police no longer take missing child cases. Dawkins agrees to help find a man’s missing son and receives a tip from Bates to vistit Old Man Jane (Cathleen Mason). There we get a clearer picture of this new world and just what is happening to those children.

In the next segment “The Hermes” we meet a Jamie, a man ensnared upside down on a tree refusing to answer questions from a helmeted man in black questionning him. Jamie is saved by a man named Adrain (who seems to have Jedi like powers), they argue about taking a crystal and/or claiming the bounty on it; eitherway the hiest for the crystal begins!

Next up is “The Agamemnon”, where we follow some astronauts who are checking some space relay stations. One has to land and examine a relay station on a desert planet. Whilst examing, his suit experinces a critical failure and he collapses on the planet and removed his helmet. Soon he discovers he can breath and walks across the desert exploring whilst flashbacking to his old life. It would seem the planet begins to impact the astronaut mentally. He then finds the body of another astronaut and sudden;y wakes up in the medical lab back on the ship, but is he ok?

Whilst In “The Perses” all is not what it seems after a pilot may or may not have been bonded with an alien. Are his memories his own? Or have thy beenn absorbed from elsewhere? It is like Memento in space!

“The Caronte” begins with a female lieutenant escaping a larger spaceship in an X-Wing like ship. She is soonbeing shot at by huge cannons. We then cut to a young girl waking up in hospital asking “are they all dead?” We then get flashbacks of the young girl and learn who name is Debbie. We then jump back to the lieutenant who is still trying to escape in her ship. We then jump back-and-forth between Debbie and the lieutenant, learning a little bit more each time.

Verdict: 5/10. There are some great ideas here which should be explored fully. My personal favourites were The Perses and The Caronte but as an anthology piece you do not get the connectivity that all the stories are happening in the same universe. After setting the scene with the child abductions in the first story, it was shame not to witness what was happening to them across different perspective and views across the universe. Instead we got some disjointed (mainly) good ideas that felt a bvit thrown together. I saw little of the promised counterattcks to the aliens the lead promised.
