Storyline

An astronaut comes back to Earth and crashes in a field, incredibly irradiated and wreaking havoc. Just as they have him cornered, he disappears, and the "real" astronaut is found 7,500 miles away in the Pacific Ocean, "alive, well, and of normal size." Written by Jonah Falcon <jonahnynla@mindspring.com>

Goofs

At the beginning, the Captain's lapels have infantry insignia (crossed rifles). Later, they change to Artillery (crossed canons). His left arm patch has the Nike Hercules system (nuclear defense), so his insignia should stay Artillery. See more »

The very definition of BORING
16 May 2003 | by Teach-7See all my reviews

You haven't experienced cinematic boredom until you watch this incoherent mess. You know you're in trouble early on when the voice-over (usually the saving grace of hopeless movie-directors) singularly fail to explain what is going on. You, the viewer, is on your own here, completely deserted by Monster a go go.

The actors sit around a lot, talk a lot, whatever. The monster doesn't really relate to anything else happening here, but he does look frighteningly emaciated and wasted (and very tall). Trouble is, he doesn't get much screen time. When the ending finally arrives a celebration is in order. Admire yourself enormously for sitting through this. It's an achievement, believe me. The second worst movie ever. Manos-hands of fate is even worse, but not by much.
