Website DVD Talk states "the movie opens with a Space Shuttle mission, Hangar 18 (1980) ginally] premiering nearly a year before the first actual shuttle missions. (The film does include experimental free flight footage of the Enterprise, however; that craft never went into orbit.)". See more »
Camera shadows can be seen on the car hoods during the chase scenes. In one instance, one can clearly see the camera operator's shadow. See more »
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.
