Comically inept story
4 December 2004 | by (Minnesota, USA) – See all my reviews

As others have mentioned, this is about an astronaut who comes back from space infected with some alien virus, and moths start sprouting out of his body and infecting other people in the city. Too bad Hollywood has never heard of the concept of putting screens on windows, or the whole thing could have been easily avoided.

Our two main characters, Jamie Luner and Nicholas Lea, are called in to figure the whole mess out. The thing I found constantly humorous about the whole thing is that this pair, obviously hired by the government to figure out what went wrong with their space shuttle mission, seem to get the idea that they are running some sort of independent research lab and have no responsibility to share their findings with the people who hired them. They even accuse their employers of using "Homeland Security" to bug their phones to find out what they're up to. Um, no, actually these people are your bosses, and it's your responsibility to keep them updated on your progress, not keep everything secret from them. The other funny thing is that they do such a horrendously awful job of stopping the alien invasion. The head alien as much as tells Luner that they are intent on taking over the earth, yet in conversation after conversation she keeps acting indignant whenever her bosses suggest that the aliens might have evil goals.

To sum up, some movies feature mad scientists trying to take over the world. In this movie, you've got two characters who basically are accomplishing the same thing, except through sheer incompetence. Their bizarre attitude that they are the only two people who should be involved in the project, juxtaposed with scene after scene of them screwing everything up, is a real hoot. But not in the "so bad it's good" way. Just in the "it's really bad" way.
