This is far more than just a music video. This is a short science fiction horror movie in the Alien/Aliens vein. The special effects are very well done, and the storyline, while compact, is well written. Yes, there is a scene that is clearly borrowed from Raiders of the Lost Ark, but overall despite the derivative nature of the story the movie/video is very well done, and as a vehicle for the new Iron Maiden song it works extremely well.
Actually, it left me wanting more. A full movie.
As a short movie - 4.5/5 As a music video - 6/5
