Originally a 30 minute portion for an anthology film, Impostor was retooled into a full length feature film. Based on the Philip K. Dick short story of the same name, it follows the lead character Spencer Olham's quest to regain his identity after being suspected as an alien android, in an future Earth at war with aliens that use the androids as bombs to destroy their enemies homeworlds. Written by
Spencer Olham is said to be "very good at integral and differential calculus." This is a tongue-in-cheek reference to Gilbert and Sullivan's musical "Pirates of Penzance" from the famously silly patter-song "Modern Major General." (The line from the song is, "I am very good at integral and differential calculus, I know the scientific names of being animalculus...") See more »

There wasn't always a war with the Centauri, but in my lifetime it's all I've ever known. By the year 2050, six years after the first attack, we'd lost so many things.

This movie surprised me, it was far better than what I was expecting, seeing as I believed the critics and chose not to see it at the theatres based on that. I won't be listening to critics anymore! I wish I had seen it at the theatres now, and supported it. More science fiction as well done as this film should be made, considering far worse movies, make far more money.
The special effects were 1st rate, locations, cinematography, acting, all very, very good. The story was compelling, lots of action and kept you guessing the entire movie, right up until the very end!
Very well done, I recommend this flick to ALL sci-fi fans, don't miss it!
