In 1947, in New Mexico, a radio operator receives a signal following patterns and while investigating the occurrence, he vanishes. In the present days, the same signal is transmitted from a base in the Falkland Islands to United States of America, and a satellite captures images of a unknown object in Antartic. The cryptologist Julien Rome (James Spader) is invited to investigate the mystery in the South Pole, and he flies to a research base. While a team tries to open a weird shell probably from the outer space, Julien solves the message, indeed a distress signal ordering not to open the case. Written by

The black & white footage shown to Julian Rome is footage from The Thing from Another World. This footage was also used in the remake of The Thing from Another World, John Carpenter's The Thing, and it is the film that R.J. MacReady finds in the destroyed Norwegian camp. See more »
Julian has a scarf that is set differently in three scenes in a row. Once over a jacket, a second time not. These kind of mistakes repeat in many more scenes. See more »
James Spader plays a cryptologist who is summoned to the Antarctic where a research station has uncovered something in the ice shelf that is emitting radio signals in a non-random pattern. As the ice melts around it, the scientists discover that it is some sort of alien pod. Too late, Spader decyphers the message which is telling them not to disturb the vessel.
This film takes a little bit from several other science fiction movies and blends the parts into a pretty weak story. There's nothing new here, but at least the filmmakers realize that and set about with providing simple entertainment.
You could do a lot worse at the video store.
