First saw 20 years ago and its fascination to me then has not dimmed.
Skillfully told tale of alien contact - "we come in peace" but this soon changed as a deep and premeditated plot by the aliens to enslave/rape the Earth emerged. Obvious overtones common to any invader/oppressive regime in particular The Holocaust.
Strong storyline and characters that one really felt involved with/cared for.
Special effects (especially the at-times wobbly V shuttle craft) not state-of-the-art by today's standards but competently done and more than compensated for by the strength of the storyline.
Would recommend to people who don't particularly like sci-fi, because of the personal side of the story.
