Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A movie that shoehorns a blunt warning into its silly but entertaining story of a young radio astronomer's one-man battle against sinister extraterrestrials.
Rotten: [Sheen] spends most of the movie in a kind of sweaty apoplexy that makes one worry for his health.
Fresh: It's a strong, lean piece of writing that moves quickly. Nothing is wasted, and nothing happens the way you'd expect.
Fresh: The movie is as smart as ``Mission: Impossible'' is dumb.
Great Movie! Worth the purchase
I have scene this movie several times and I found it to be a very entertaining movie with a great plot. It is not an academy award winner, but if you are looking for good entertainment with a little bit of everthing in it, I would highly suggest buying this movie.
Very well done!
This is one of my favorite sci-fi movies. Charlie Sheen gives a fabulous performance as a very cool guy with a little bit of nerd in him. The movie has a believable plot and a lot of suspense. This is the little-known sci-fi movie to watch!
