Storyline

On March 13th, 1997 one of the largest UFO sightings ever recorded took place across the southwestern United States. The event became known as the 'Phoenix Lights' and was witnessed by community leaders, members of law enforcement, as well as thousands of everyday citizens. This true story, based on transcripts from actual hypnosis-therapy sessions, finally reveals what happened after the infamous incident ended and how six people, stranded by chance on a forgotten road, encountered more than just lights in the sky.

Journalist: Senator, ah an attorney named Peter Gerston has filed suit in Arizona, uh, alleging that there's a cover-up regarding UFOs, and there has been for dozens of years, and millions of people have seen these objects in the sky, and the military continues to deny that anything's going on. Is that an area that's of interest to you at all?

Making something saleable out of thin air
24 October 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie for two reasons: Jason Connery (son of Sean) and the story of alien abduction it purported to tell.

If you watched a movie for these reasons, what would you expect to see? Well, I saw the actor in what appeared to be a very low-budget movie. No semblance to Sean, sadly (the actor playing Joe did). Though, I would say that he did a very good job playing an American army hick. I was impressed with that.

Much of the story was shot in the dark, among the trees, or in a very small area where the actors behaved claustrophobic. There was little significant dialogue, nothing really worth remembering, no one waxing philosophic at a critical juncture.. and no answers. It reminded me very much of The Blair Witch Project without the very helpful DVD extras. Minus the shaky camera business which, let's face it, didn't improve the viewing experience.

The movie did not do a satisfactory job convincing me that the event happened and beyond seeing the son of Sean why would you want to see that? Perhaps a caveat here is: if you're going to do a story about a strange event, broaden the perspective.
