Storyline

In Norway a military plane crashes under mysterious circumstances: in his last message the pilot reported many lights falling from the sky. The NATO wants to play down the incident, but the famous TV moderator George Abbot and the no less persistent journalist Milker sense a sensational story about UFOs and start snooping around in the area with help of pilot "Bird" McNamara. Inspired by the suspiciously rigorous isolation of the whole area around the crash point and cases of an unknown desease they have a closer look at the military's activities...

This is a very dull film.
29 December 1998 | by (Valley Forge, PA) – See all my reviews

Unfortunately, this film is not worth wasting time on. Despite a good cast and the occasional humorous moment, the film is almost unwatchable due to its slow pace and familiar plot. Watch an X-Files episode instead.
