Storyline

In 1962 a top secret government agency designed a spaceship to explore the deepest reaches of outer space. On its voyage back to Earth it disappeared without a trace. 44 years later Jack Alder, a rouge CIA agent, has uncovered the government's dark secret. Today Alder is set to unleash an evil on this planet like nothing man has ever seen. Fueled by his own ambition and greed, he has devised a plan that threatens the fate of all humanity as he opens the door to something not of this Earth. Caught in the chaos is Slade Hunter, a down and out ex-special forces soldier. He searches to put the pieces of his brother's brutal murder together. Soon, he finds himself battling for his own life against a band of mercenaries, government agents and Earth's deadliest visitor. Written by Brandon Bethmann & Eric Szmyr

extremely bad
24 March 2012 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

This is one of the worst motion pictures I've ever seen. I said motion picture since you can not call it a movie due to the lack of the story. We see different scenes with different people but nothing sticks them together. Some of the characters appear only to be killed. Though, this should be an alien/monster movie we hardly see the monster. Moreover, in the longest scene we can see a nude woman taking a bath and caressing her boobs. Now, if I want to see boobs I'm going to watch Femalien or Emanuelle or whatever, but not a horror film with aliens. The only good thing in the movie is Megan Bouchard who is pretty nice and acts quite good. But she can not save this crap. Not only the non-existing story and the acting are horrible but so are the effects. When the soldiers fire with their gun you can hear a sound like ... I don't even know what but not that you should. And the visual effects are like flashing cameras or some lightning. According to the storyline written by the director it could be a good movie. Not a Hollywood super production, but a decent flick. But it's not. So I have to suggest you to avoid this even if you have nothing else to do or you are forced with a gun.
