When two aliens fighting against each other in their spacecrafts crash on Earth at Area 51, a military group goes to the location but they are killed. The former military Jake Townsend seeks news from his brother in the base where his brother serves, and stumbles with the alien Jude. He is wounded and explains that he needs to find a weapon before the other alien, Kronnan, activates it to destroy Earth. They team-up with Jake's former girlfriend Monica Gray to search the weapon while they are hunted down by Kronnan and a paramilitary team. But when Jake meets Kronnan, he tells that Jude is the one who intends to activate the destructive weapon. Who is telling the truth? Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Did You Know?


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 »


At one point Jake Townsend states that they are in Missouri. The setting is consistent with this statement; however, the title of the movie claims a connection with Area 51 (in Nevada). See more »

Jason, what befell thee?
21 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

The movie is not even worth reviewing, except for the fact that it stars a one-time legitimate actor named Jason London. I know he is pretty much just a pretty boy, but there was a time when he appeared in legit movies. I wonder what happened to him? I can guess, but I dare not say for fear of being sued. Anyhow, the movie is a very bad -- and I mean very bad --- copy of I COME IN PEACE, which was about two enemy aliens duking it out on Earth. In that incredibly silly but fun movie, which starred another has-been, Dolph Lundgren, the aliens at least looked like something from another planet. In this movie, the aliens are an ordinary-looking black guy and someone dressed in what appears to be an ancient aviator outfit. I have seen worse, but not by much. I only watched it for London, who fails to deliver the goods. He reminds me a little of Kyle McLaughlin, another pretty boy who seems unable to act -- at least ever since SHOWGIRLS. Please avoid this one.
