Storyline

51 chronicles what happens after political pressure from the American public forces the Air Force to provide a few well-known reporters with limited access to the most secretive base on the planet: Area 51. When one of the base's hidden 'long term visitors' exploits this unprecedented visit as a chance to liberate himself and his fellow alien captives, Area 51 turns from a secure government base to a horrifying destination of terror.

Worst...movie... ever
6 September 2011 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Aliens are pretty awesome and gives directors a chance to be creative.

No such things here. A mix of wannabe dry humor in dialogues combined with extremely mellow action and a poor poor scenario.

The aliens are less scary than a bowl of soup and the acting is well... not even worthy being described. The credibility is nowhere and even The Killer Tomatoes have more depth than this movie. I can not help but wonder how these actors can look at themselves in the mirror after seeing this ordeal...

I've seen bizarre movies, annoying movies, fascinating movies... and this. Not horror but horrible.

I want my time back
