Storyline

Two aliens arrive on Earth trying to kill each other. This is not easy, since they seem to be able to regenerate lost body parts and survive bullet wounds. Both of them happen to meet a young pathologist Dori Caisson, and each alien tells her that he is a peacemaker (an intergalactic cop) and that the other one is a bad guy. Whom can she trust ?

Tenney can make a movie

First of all, let me proclaim my bias: I am the President and CEO of the Kevin Tenney Fan Club, therefore I enjoy his work. Granted, the man has never made a blockbuster, but his work is far more entertaining than anything Woody Allen or Michael Bay could ever dream of making. That being said, I enjoyed this flick but not quite as much as I enjoyed Pinnochio's Revenge or Witchboard.

In this film we have a doctor (Hilary Shepard) torn between two aliens, both claiming to be police officers from another planet. Hilary has a hard time trusting the aliens in human form since they are both tricky and each have the same story - flipping roles to confuse Ms. Shepard. Hilary changes her allegiance to the men on several occasions throughout the film, but you really can't blame her. Although this isn't Tenney's finest film, it is much better than other sci-fi films out there.

VIOLENCE: $$$$ (I swear, this film employed more stunt men than any other film in the history of cinema. There are numerous car chase scenes, which I don't usually enjoy, but Kevin makes them great, as well as several explosions. SInce the aliens can regenerate, Tenney shoots Robert Forster and Lance Edwards about a thousand times each).

NUDITY: $$ (Hilary Shepard removes a robe and steps into the shower with one of the aliens and then makes love to him. Tenney's love scenes are never gratuitous. You hardly see any of the forbidden flesh).

STORY: $$$ (Although the main premise is a recycled one, Tenney is a master story-teller with a superior knack for writing one-liners. Most of the jokes are spoken through Hilary Shepard's character since the aliens don't have jokes and pranks on their planet. Unlike most writers, Tenney doesn't write females as the helpless, screaming, wait-for-the-man-to-save-me characters. He gives his female characters substance).

ACTING: $$$ (The acting is alright. I've always been a fan of the Dos Roberts - Forster and Davi. Robert Davi's role isn't very substantial but he is solid in it. Lance Edwards got on my nerves with his alien accent and his acting is a tad stiff. Hilary Shepard proves to have a knack at delivery one-liners. She could be described as a female Bruce Campbell. She does a wonderful job with Tenney's dialogue).
