Storyline

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 Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Adequate time waster
19 November 2003 | by (Ottawa, Canada) – See all my reviews

Not exactly the most original sci-fi movie ever. Seems to have taken elements from the Thing, and Aliens, among others. Seems like one of James Spader's take this money and run flicks. Some interesting special effects. Good looking women (and of course there must women in bikinis in the Antartic, how could there not be?). Leave your brain behind at home, and watch this movie with some popcorn.
