The former military Jake Townsend seeks news from his brother in the base where his brother serves, and stumbles with the alien Jude. He is wounded and explains that he needs to find a weapon before the other alien, Kronnan, activates it to destroy Earth. They team-up with Jake's former girlfriend Monica Gray to search the weapon while they are hunted down by Kronnan and a paramilitary team. But when Jake meets Kronnan, he tells that Jude is the one who intends to activate the destructive weapon. Who is telling the truth? Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Did You Know?


The red convertible the heroes "borrow" is a 1967 Rambler Rebel SST, a fairly rare vehicle (only 1,686 were made that year). This fact and the film's fairly low budget probably explain why it survived to the end of the film, as this vehicle likely belonged to a private collector. See more »


Monica Gray is forced into the car because she has the rod. In her attempt to escape she moves the rod outside the car. All that is needed to prevent the abduction and subsequent problems is to throw the rod away. See more »


Jude: To deactivate the Omega Seed, you must slide the Ether Rod into the Terminator Port.

Pretty Good Movie
3 February 2008 | by arcdankuSee all my reviews

I enjoyed it. Don't know why some people are complaining - interesting aliens, a fast-paced story, plot twists. Acting wasn't too bad either. And for once, the hero wasn't like a regular guy who all of a sudden becomes superman squared. One could relate to or at least understand the characters, even the 'dumb' ones!! Aliens had their vulnerabilities too. Adding Area 51 added a neat plot depth. I would like to see sequel. Compared to a whole lot of stuff I have seen on Sci-Fi (including one they send a demolition man to repair the moon-HA!) this was a well-written, well-acted movie that held my attention. Where there weaknesses? Sure, but I wasn't expecting Oscar-quality. Not bad for a Saturday evening.
