Kate is dying. She wants reassurance that there is life elsewhere in the Universe. She and Andy go to the one place that may hold the answers to her questions. Alien lights have been seen. Alien ships have been sighted. If she could only come into contact with these foreign forces! The bizarre people who inhabit the area also play a role in Kate and Andy's quest. The one place that may hold the answer is...GROOM LAKE! Written by
Bill Shatner rode horseback on the U.S./Mexico border with a Border Patrol Agent (who appears in the movie in two different roles) during the filming of the movie in Bisbee, Arizona. Shatner talked about that experience in an interview on both the Conan O'Brien Show in 2001 and later in his autobiography "Up Till Now" (published by Thomas Dunne Books) in 2008. See more »
William Shatner has been around the movie and tv business long enough that he ought to be able to do simple things like choose film stock, know when something looks cheesy, and know when acting is bad.
In Groom Lake, Shatner simply did not consider quality. One scene looks like a movie set and another looks like someone's bedroom, shot with a home 16mm film camera. Maybe he did put some love into the film, but that is not what moviegoers come to watch.
This is a horrible movie. Don't rent it unless you absolutely have to see how low Shatner can go. If you do rent it, be prepared to scratch your head in confusion, and groan with pain over the this turkey.
