When Zane attempts to transmit the video from the control room, the power in the room fails due to a large cable being cut outside. However, the steel window curtain still rolls up when Zane presses a button, which would be impossible if there was no power in the room whatsoever. See more »

Intriguing as well as intelligent Sci-fi movie about a dark extraterrestrial invasion
Thrilling film about mysterious events spread across the planet , being compellingly directed by nice filmmaker David Twohy . This is a mix of thrills , action , adventure , intrigue and extraterrestrial invasion of world doom and gloom ; add to that a really magnificent cast . The greatest danger facing our world has been the planet's best kept secret...until now . Zane (Charlie Sheen), an astronomer discovers intelligent alien life , as he picks up strange signals from outer space . Eerily soon after his discovery , Zane is fired by his boss (Ron Silver) .

But the aliens are keeping a deadly secret , and will do anything to stop Zane and his fiancée (Teri Polo) from learning it .

This is a science fiction thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat . Exciting film packs intrigue , intense scenes , noisy action and astonishing suspense . The picture follows the wake of the 8os and 90s in ¨X file¨ style and invasion mania . Passable acting by Charlie Sheen as a radio astronomer who receives signal from a far planet , and gorgeous Teri Polo as his girlfriend . Enjoyable support cast , such as Richard Schiff as his best friend and assistant , Ron Silver as a nasty chief , Lindsay Crouse as a curious scientific , Leon Rippy as a hoodlum , among others . Appropriate and suspenseful musical score by Arthur Kempel . Atmospheric and colorful cinematography by Hiro Narita .
The motion picture was well written and directed by David Twohy . David is an expert writer and director of splendid Sci-Fi movies . As his first picture was the acceptable ¨Timescape¨ . He also wrote ¨Warlock¨, ¨Waterworld ¨, a script for ¨Alien 3¨ in 1988, but it was rejected . Back in May of 2000, Fox Studios once inquired for his availability to write and direct "AVP: Alien vs. Predator" , but turned down the offer due to scheduling conflicts . David subsequently directed ¨Below¨, the successful ¨Pich Black¨ and its sequel ¨ The chronicles of Riddick¨ .
