John McNaughton made the following remarks during an interview for In The Flesh fanzine (UK), issue #6 on page 10: "As soon as Vestron backed out Atlantic picked it up, but it was submitted to the MPAA and given an 'X' certificate so they just walked out on the deal.We got an R rating and had to cut it 5 times, but I don't feel the picture was damaged to the point where destroyed by any means."

If you enjoy bad movies, especially late 1980s/early 1990s science fiction/horror, I recommend this movie. The premise and story are interesting, there are both intentionally funny parts and unintentionally funny parts, and the music is good (especially the theme). Probably the weakest aspect is the acting. Between the title character--an alien who is played by five different actors as he changes identities--and the two heroes, a pair of cops boringly played by Rae Dawn Chong and Dan Gordon, we never really have anyone to care about. One aspect of the movie that I found especially pleasantly surprising is its urban setting. Most low-budget SF or horror b-movies are set in the wilderness or a post-apocalypse to cut down on costs, while this was set in the big city, full of people and streets and buildings and modern technology. That--and the unexpected cross-dressing by Brad-Pitt-manqué Neil Giuntoli--are what make this movie a keeper!
