Trivia

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 »

Low Budget- really really stupid alien designs of the 2 species (or should I say 3?)
12 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

No matter what mood you are in and how bored you are- do not watch this piece of trash. It's not justifiable to watch yet another such US movie? If you bored, join the US army but don't watch this. How much did it take to make this? I'm a Sci Fi Fan, Independence Day was awesome and so old. What profit is bought to the World creating stupid ass low budget movies like Showdown at Area 51??? How did they get it out onto the screens or straight to video - (wotever u call it). OMG the world will be such a better place if only there was a minimum standard to pass movies as watchable but noooooo, some US people actually like this stuff??? I reckon this should be removed from records because it's not doing anyone any favours to get a chance to watch this.
