I like this stuff, I really do. This is the ultimate 1990s movie: paranoid as
hell. Of course, here in South Africa there is no such thing as "paranoia."
It is more a case of "heightened awareness." If you believe that somebody
is out to kill you, then you are probably right. Don't believe me? Then you're
probably not living here...
This film, a Generation X version of The X-Files, features the mother of all
conspiracy theories: that... But that would be spoiling it, wouldn't it? Better
go see for yourself...
Some nice pure sci-fi touches such as the weird machinery the aliens use.
And, of course, the aliens themselves which are well-done. Charlie Sheen
is also okay as the geek hero who was pretty paranoid to begin with...
