Excellent Sci-fi Film with a Good Message
23 April 2001 | by (Subcrust Base 955 - Venus) – See all my reviews

Relatively recent sci-fi blockbusters like The Matrix and Independence Day can't compare to a quality film like Enemy Mine. The movie is an exciting story of two marooned enemy space soldiers. They are indoctrinated with hate for each other's species, yet forced to live together to survive. Sound familiar?

The two soldiers learn to overcome their brainwashing about each other and learn to respect and love each other like brothers. What can be wrong with that? True moral story-telling ala the tv series "Star Trek".

The story keeps your interest with good special effects and space adventure on another world. The acting is very, very good. As many others have already noted, an overlooked and underrated film. Only the most jaded or immature could not find this an enjoyable movie. Highly recommend seeing it!
