Well i must say, my friends all told me about this movie and i was apprehensive, to say the least. I have never been one for conspiricy theory films, so i thought this would be no exception. I was wrong. ten minutes into it and i was hooked. George Kennedy's narration was superb, and the story really got me thinking about our planet and if others may exist. I reccomend this film to anyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!
