Storyline

To save Earth from invasion, scientists alter a human into a replica of one of the aliens. The human subject Mace is a remorseless killer, who easily adapts to any personality required. Giving up his body and life means little to him, he relishes this ultimate test of his chameleon powers. But how much loyalty will the vicious Mace have for his fellow humans?

Trivia

The title refers to a type of horned lizard who has parrot-like feet and stereoscopic eyes. The species is originally found in Africa and on the Iberian peninsula, but has been transplanted to Hawaii, Florida and the southern United States. Not all varieties have the ability to adapt their coloring to that of the surrounding environment. See more »

Quotes

Control Voice: The race of man is known for its mutability, we can change our moods, our faces, our lives, to suit what ever situation confronts us. Adapt and survive. Even among the most changeable of living things, man is quick silver, more chameleon like than the chameleon, no matter what the cost to others, or himself.

Alien Identity
14 March 2016 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Robert Duvall stars as Louis Mace, a world-weary government agent/assassin stranded in Mexico who is approached by a government official if he would be interested in a special, top secret mission. Mace readily complies, even when he is told that it involves him going undercover in a crashed alien ship by undergoing a radical new surgery using the alien DNA to literally turn himself into an exact replica of them! A cover story is contrived, but the other aliens don't buy it, though Mace is surprised to find them non-hostile, and that he prefers his new identity to the old one... Duvall is excellent as always, giving the unlikely premise a much needed boost of credibility.
