Aliens and Heroes
13 November 2003 | by (Phoenix, Arizona) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie and I actually liked it. I've always been a Boyd Kestner fan and must say that while he may prefer to play a cowboy, he did a very good job with his character. Alien tales have been told and retold but I found this one enjoyable.
