Storyline

Set in San Diego, the movie follows the desperate acts of Bill Templer head of a covert defense agency perpetrating a terrifying fraud on the American public - involving the imminent invasion of aliens - by leaking to the press a satellite image of an alien armada poised to strike earth. As terror of an alien attack spreads, the President of the United States orders the launching of Peacemaker, a surveillance satellite retrofitted with a nuclear warhead. Templer's elaborate plot is threatened when police detective Kevin Anjanette discovers that the alien images were faked. To protect his scheme, Templer swiftly unleashes the lethal head of his security, Ava Zurich, onto Anjanette. But it's soon revealed that an alien force actually does exist and is poised to strike if Peacemaker is used. In order to protect mankind from total annihilation, Anjanette must race to abort the nuclear bomb that will trigger the alien attack. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

The disc that is mistakenly erased cannot be a CD-RW because when the label was peeled, it said "CD-R" and the bottom of the disc was blue which is used in Azo and Cyanine CD-R dyes, while CD-RW discs use a crystalline compound that looks silver or metallic gray. See more »

If it's a rainy afternoon, give it a try. If it's sunny, go outside instead.
29 June 2004 | by (Nashua, NH) – See all my reviews

This is just another movie in that well-trodden genre of "Mysterious aliens intend to take over the planet". It adds a unique twist or two to the plot, but nothing you couldn't have predicted in the first reel.

Plot: so-so. Effects: basically non-existent. Characters: With the exception of the detective, nobody you'll really care much about.

If you need some sci-fi background noise, this movie will do just fine. But if you're looking for entertainment, you'd do far better to go outside and watch the birds.

By the way: CD-RW discs are silver, not green/blue. The green/blue ones can't be re-written.
