Joey Callaghan: So, you know I'm thinking you're from another country, you know I'm hearing an accent. Am I right maybe? How would Sherlock Holmes do this? Alright, number one, I figure you're on the run. Number two, like Ralph said, those two guys that were following you, they're like foreigners. Number three, you don't talk alot, right, which means maybe, ah, you're trying not to give yourself away, right? Which means four, you got something to hide.

Spader in early leading role is only reason to watch
27 December 2017 | by a_chinnSee all my reviews

Weird and poorly made sci-fi romance TV movie about an alien (Belinda Bauer) with an 1980s Human League short haircut who is on the run from alien hitmen and is rescued and romanced by a young James Spader. The romance isn't all the compelling and the action elements are not all that exciting either. The only real point of interest is seeing Spader in an early leading role, getting to play the hero instead of his usual 80s smarmy jerk supporting parts (i.e. "Pretty in Pink," "Mannequin," "Less Than Zero," etc.), although I suppose he did get to play the hero of "Tuff Turf." For an actress I hadn't really heard of before, Bauer is quite good as the alien. After looking at her filmography, I saw that she played a memorable villain in "Robocop 2" and was in "Winter Kills" and "Flashdance," but I don't remember her in those two films. There's also a good score by the underrated composer Gil Melle. Overall, this is a pretty bad movie that's made watchable by two good leads.
