Storyline

After a mysterious, extraterrestrial object lands in the mining town of Salena, Arizona, the government dispatches a team of Marines to contain the possible threat. Meanwhile, a group of death row inmates ambush their prison bus and take the guards and personnel aboard hostage. Arriving in the seemingly deserted town, they come across the Special Ops captain, the sole survivor of a horrible carnage that's decimated the rest of his unit. Now, with time running out, the group must unite to combat the threat of the savage aliens hunting them in the mine tunnels below, and the peril above from a squad of fighter planes sent to bomb the town to oblivion, in this pulse-pounding, sci-fi thriller.

Weapon of choice is knife, but he prefers to use his hands... uhm, what?
28 November 2010 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

In the first of several explosions in this(except for one that is real, they are all poorly CGI'ed, so don't get your hopes up), an alien craft crashes onto Earth. I think, we barely see it. Anyway, this really worries the senior citizens working at Luke Airforce base, so they send out some bubble-gum-chewing soldiers, only for them to die at the hand of confusing quick cuts, some of which may contain a trace of the creatures. Well, this flick mainly concerns itself with the prisoners escaping their transport bus who bring along the guards as hostages(complete with an attractive female working at the pen, just to complete the rip-off of Con Air... and *yes*, there is even someone who needs medical attention among them) who find themselves in a seemingly abandoned town that is obviously where the extra-terrestrials are hiding. One of the criminals thinks he's Michael Madsen(don't feel bad, at first glance, I kinda thought you were, too, dude), and he's kind of in charge. There's some tension and a few physical fights, and if the characters weren't so boring, stereotypical and clichéd, we'd probably care. We do eventually see the outer space beings for more than a single frame, and the designs are decent(if one is unmistakably a man in a suit), if there's little violence or gore. Even the sex scene is merely hinted at! Come on, this isn't an artistic piece, it's a B movie, don't you know your audience? This nearly always shuns away from what we want to see! There are two hot chicks in this, though. The acting is pretty bad. This is only 83 minutes sans credits, and it simply doesn't deliver what we expect of it. It isn't entertaining(not even in the "so bad it's good" way), and it tries to be smarter than it is, and fails(and if it didn't, it would still be aiming wrong). Also, at times, it's like they just learned how to use the equipment; at one point they clearly move too close to the lighting setup, and with some footage, it's very easy to tell that it was sped-up. I recommend this only to those who won't listen to the warning. Oh, and conspiracy theorists might get a kick out of the very opening and the "bonus scene" at the end. 1/10
