I really enjoyed this film. OK the production was a little low budget and the supporting cast could have been a little more polished, however the main stars more than made up for this with solid performances. When I say this is "A Sci-Fi story, not a Sci-Fi epic", I mean that this movie doesn't have or need a million dollar effects budget as this is a simple story about our planet, hope and better tomorrows. The effects were well done, and did not distract me from the main narrative as badly done effects can do. The movie is for those whom don't mind their Sci-Fi with a little subtle "X-Files" orientation for sure. In the beginning our hero is the non believer digging around in search of his missing child. Then as strange things ensue as he reaches what he sees as the unbelievable, undeniable truth (the truth is out there). The mystery unfolds and this happy tale develops into the ending you hoped for.
This is a Saturday afternoon TV Sci-Fi movie for everyone, whether you be hardened, old skool, Sci-Fi lover or you're just the girlfriend/boyfriend, watching along for the ride as there is nothing else on. I enjoyed the 90 mins and so did my girlfriend.
5.6/10 from me
