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 »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Jake Townsend: How can I trust you?
Kronnan: I am a centurion. I have pledged my life to protect this planet and the Omega seed. The other, he is a rogue, a terrorist. The rod he carries is the switch that will detonate the seed and destroy us all.
Jake Townsend: What about those men and women you killed?
Kronnan: It was they who attacked me. Do you not have order on this planet? Aren't the rules not the same?

Lame and Dull
22 March 2016 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

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 (Jason London) seeks news from his brother in the base where his brother serves, and stumbles with the alien Jude (Coby Bell). He is wounded and explains that he needs to find a weapon before the other alien, Kronnan (Jahidi White), activates it to destroy Earth. They team-up with Jake's former girlfriend Monica Gray (Gigi Edgley) 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?

"Showdown at Area 51" is a lame and dull film with an awfully written story. There are so many flaws that irritates. For example, Jake is angry with Jude in a moment, when the alien is accused of killing his brother, and teams-up with him on the next moment. Jake impersonates a military, trespasses the base perimeter, kills the leader of the paramilitary and the film has a happy end. My vote is three.

Title (Brazil): Not Available
