This film is an Alien clone even down to the opening credits. Well actually, it's a clone and combo of several sci-fi classics. Is had the plot of "Alien," the setting of "The Thing," and a creature that's a cross between the Predator and the Queen Alien from "Aliens." However, it does have a pretty interesting premise. Turn out that human were bred billions of years ago at the dawn of evolution as harvest for a race of aliens. But the alien crashed and was frozen in the Arctic, and he was perserved until the humans revived him in present day. No kidding. And now he want to finish the job he started: eat us!
The cast was good, and it completely ignored traits of the genre (i.e. the star-crossed lovers' fate, the African-American character's didn't die first, and the DOCTOR's fate! WOW). However, the ending is similar: the old "let's blow the monster up" idea is used.
It was pretty good, but it was an assault on original plot. Don't watch it unless you're feeling really goofy.
