Storyline

Major Albert Skynner is brought out of retirement when an alien creature arrives on Earth. The creature communicates through humans who appear to be in a hypnotic spell. The messages it gives is one of peace, using quotes from all of the major religions of the world. When these creatures start appearing by the dozens, all of the major powers in the world are told to disarm, but the US President is reluctant to do so. Is this a genuine message of peace or is it just trickery and a prelude to invasion? Written by garykmcd

Amateur Attempt at Science Fiction
25 November 2007 | by (Mississauga, Canada) – See all my reviews

This was terrible.

With the amount of talent and experience the team has, I am amazed that they produced such a poor example of "Science Fiction". Besides lacking any true originality or mystery, the characters and events utterly failed to be believable. The plot is furthered by leaps and bounds of crooked logic and the musical score tries too hard to compensate for it. I felt that I was watching a cheap ripoff of an episode of Outer Limits (which itself is not a fantastic example of the genre). When I started watching, I hoped to be intrigued and forced to think. Unfortunately, the message was insultingly obvious.
