Suspense; with a twist!!!
20 February 2004 | by sp27343See all my reviews

I REALLY liked this movie. It's a shame more people didn't see it. I didn't think much about seeing it until I saw a TODAY Show interview with Michael Nouri and his discussion about how he was reluctant to do it at first. He had said he didn't what to do a sci-fi movie, but after reading the script, and talking with the production team he was sold. This movie played out as a straight police-caper type movie for the first half, and then it moves into the sci-fi stuff later. The movie is kind of funny in that Mike N. plays it completely straight as a homicide detective, and can't believe his ears, or know what to make of Kyle's spacey FBI Agent character for the first 45 minutes or so. They soon grow into a team, once it is realized what their up against. I have rented it from time to time over the years, and it holds up well. In all; a great movie!!
