Not what you'd expect
18 June 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have to admit that the title for this 1990s TV movie is pretty cool and it sets up a situation which never actually arises. Instead, the narrative of this film sees a couple of aliens escape from Roswell. They disguise themselves as humans - one male, one female - and split up, going on different routes. The female is determined to destroy the planet while the male ends up falling in love with an Earthling and becoming a father figure to her child.

It's all very cheesy and low rent, focusing on romantic situations rather than the alien combat stuff you'd hope for. It doesn't help that the cast is universally poor, particularly from the stiff guy playing the male alien, and a lot of it feels twee and rather schmaltzy. The script is very much by the book, and there are few scenes of genuine incident or special effects to make this resemble a science fiction movie in any way, shape, or form. Instead it's a bore of a film, and one to be avoided in all instances.
