Nada, a down-on-his-luck construction worker, discovers a pair of special sunglasses. Wearing them, he is able to see the world as it really is: people being bombarded by media and government with messages like “Stay Asleep”, “No Imagination”, “Submit to Authority”. Even scarier is that he is able to see that some usually normal-looking people are in fact ugly aliens in charge of the massive campaign to keep humans subdued.

Another blast from the past. I enjoyed watching this movie again. Had some great slap-stick lines like "I have come here to chew gum and kick ass and I'm all out of bubble gum." This movie mad a lot more sense now then it did when I was a child. Good stuff.
