Storyline

Matt and George investigate a series of strange occurrences involving Newcomers, who are found to be programmed to carry out someone's dirty work. The method by which they are brainwashed dates back to the slave ship's resistance movement, the Udara, of which Susan was a part. Susan and George's lives are further disrupted when Buck enrolls in the police academy. Written by Michael Bennett <SpRiTe407@aol.com>

Good for fans, I guess
11 October 2016 | by ericstevensonSee all my reviews

I didn't like the original movie, so I'm only going to be watching the final movie. As someone who is not into this series, I was not that impressed. Still, there's really nothing wrong with this movie. It does have a pretty interesting premise. It shows aliens being members of human society in a realistic way. I remember hearing about this series when Doug Walker compared it to "District 9". Okay, there is no way this is better than "District 9". This movie, for the most part, is fairly boring. I still appreciate how the creators wanted to make something realistic.

I just wish for more action. Well, I wanted to learn more about the alien's home planet. We get to see a little more of it here, but that's about all. It does get pretty silly at times. It is nice to see some decent acting on most of their parts. It just doesn't seem like a grand finale. So yeah, this movie is just okay. I can tell why it doesn't have many reviews. There's nothing too bad in this, which is more than I can say for the upcoming movies I'll review. **1/2
