Storyline

When the Viking space capsule suddenly returns to Earth from its long ago trip to Mars, it brings with it an intelligent visitor that is part "Alien" and part "ET". Encased in armor, it extends a humanlike form from its shell to examine its surroundings and shows an interest in humans including a soft caress of a female scientist prior to the Army killing it. This only enrages its sibling. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

well made b-movie
22 July 2000 | by lenoSee all my reviews

Although it was a 'direct-to-video movie', it was nice. Convincing characters and a well thought out plot, for a B-movie. Pretty good special effects and a very nice (and unexpected) climax. If you like s-f movies you should see this movie. 7/10
