Six Aliens from two warring planets arrive on Earth for a duel to the death to decide which of those planets is the victor. Four are eliminated; one survivor (Bridges) opts to try to stop the fight, remain on Earth, merge with the natives, and have a relationship with a woman (Dickinson). He promises that they will marry as soon as he can overcome the other survivor, whom he knows to be closing in for the kill. The surprise revelation of his fiancée's true identity will not surprise B-movie and sf fans. This is an unpretentious and entertaining sf thriller. [JB]
