The red convertible the heroes "borrow" is a 1967 Rambler Rebel SST, a fairly rare vehicle (only 1,686 were made that year). This fact and the film's fairly low budget probably explain why it survived to the end of the film, as this vehicle likely belonged to a private collector. See more »
The explosion of the warhead from the RPG-7 which impacts the junk car is, to be kind, anemic. See more »
I enjoyed it. Don't know why some people are complaining - interesting aliens, a fast-paced story, plot twists. Acting wasn't too bad either. And for once, the hero wasn't like a regular guy who all of a sudden becomes superman squared. One could relate to or at least understand the characters, even the 'dumb' ones!! Aliens had their vulnerabilities too. Adding Area 51 added a neat plot depth. I would like to see sequel. Compared to a whole lot of stuff I have seen on Sci-Fi (including one they send a demolition man to repair the moon-HA!) this was a well-written, well-acted movie that held my attention. Where there weaknesses? Sure, but I wasn't expecting Oscar-quality. Not bad for a Saturday evening.
