Shown on NBC-TV in 1983 (in the wake of the network's highly popular "V" miniseries) as "Invasion Force." This version featured an alternate ending. See more »
In the first car chase, the agents' car sustains side damage from attempting to force the astronauts' pickup truck off the road. However, when the car turns onto the bridge it is seen to have gained severe damage to the front bumper and bonnet/hood. As it crashes through the side of the bridge its front is again undamaged.

Consider some of the flying saucer films we have seen over the years. The occupants speak perfect English, often with American accents to boot.
In this film we never get to see the aliens; they have a kind of Satanic presence. Instead we have a control panel that displays photographs of military and civilian installations, weird hieroglyphics, and a synthesised voice that speaks an unknown language. Now that is much better than a couple of humanoids with detectable Boston accents who carry away chloroformed females to father the next generation when they get them home.
Robert Vaughn sheds his affable Man from UNCLE image and makes a vicious government agent.
This is the only UFO film that I have ever taken seriously.
