Sci-Fi Spoof & Devil's Tower
21 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Prototypes is a campy, fun to watch Sci-Fi spoof that needs to be seen to be believed. It revolves around the story of Bob, an alien advertising account executive who is out to make the big ad sale and his spaceship has come to Earth in search of it. At the same time, Vicky Forsyth, a young girl next door type, news field reporter hoping for her big break story, grabs her TV cameraman Bill to help her follow breaking reports of UFO sightings in their rural Wyoming county. Sooner or later, the paths of the TV news team and those of alien account exec Bob are going to cross, while trying to elude U.S. defense forces out to get the spaceship.

An interesting take on the look of aliens visiting Earth can be found in Eliot Case's The Prototypes. Here, Bob and the other aliens are not your traditional little green big eyed Martian men in funny outfits carrying ray-guns, but full human size aliens clad in American bald eagle masks and business suits. Sci-Fi movie viewers will enjoy the tongue-in-cheek background of Wyoming's Devil's Tower from Close Encounters Of The Third Kind as the backdrop for a few scenes from the production.

The lead gal Jordyn Rice who plays news field reporter Vicky Forsyth is great to watch. She has fun with the role and is a likable character and quite real for the viewer to relate to. One time NFL linebacker Paul Tuttle does a nice job as well as account executive Bob with his tall and physical prowess in the role.

Great scene in the very beginning on the spaceship, when account executive Bob domineeringly leans over the desk of his boss to intimidate him by pointing his finger in his face and speaking to him with an annoyed, loud voice to get his point across, ala a worked up Harrison Ford/Han Solo style.

The Prototypes is not without a budding romantic, side love story either. While waiting for the spaceship to arrive, so they can get some great video footage and a reporting package, Vicky and her news cameraman take some time to get to know each other in the news van and the TV news station hot tub.

Whereas many low budget productions today that can't afford or won't pay for film, choose to shoot on film-simulated 24P, it was a nice change of pace to see The Prototypes shot in HD but at traditional video speed. This added to a more live, pleasing and realistic feel to the low budget production and one that helps the audience relate to it.
