Not bad for a TV-type movie of the week
22 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Classic TV-style movie about a crashed flying saucer and a government cover-up. Gary Collins and James Hampton (how's that for two names from the illustrious past?) are two astronauts who witness the saucer from their space shuttle. On their return to Earth, they find all evidence of the saucer's existence are gone. So they go on a trek to find out what happened. Darren McGavin (yes, the Night Stalker himself!) is a government man in charge of studying the saucer, which crash landed on Earth after being struck by a satellite. It now sits in good old Hangar 18. Joe Campanella and Rober Vaughn (this just keeps getting better) are the government bad guys, intent on eliminating anyone who might know something or discover the saucer's existence. It's an election year, after all. Hokey plot, hammy acting and a great-looking saucer add up to an enjoyable hour an a half of thrills and unintentional laughs. The hairdos alone will keep you in stitches, especially Collins' Beatle bangs. No special effects to speak of, but entertaining nonetheless. And this is light years away from flying saucer films from the 1950s and early 60s.
