Exciting But Thoughtful Science Fiction Film
5 August 2015 | by dianerpessler-46164See all my reviews

Stunning science fiction film that intriguingly proposes a sinister plot may be the cause of global warming. Richard Manning's screenplay is a fresh and unique one, full of thrills as well as deeply intelligent. The direction by the visionary Andrew Prowse is both highly skillful and high-octane. He expertly keeps the thrills coming but still allows time to develop characters and lets the intricate plot unfold. D.B. Sweeney (Fire In the Sky) is superb as a tough military man focused on investigating the conspiracy by alien beings and exposing it to the world before it's too late. His intensity and machismo is perfect and it stands as some of his finest work in years. The special effects are breathtaking and the creatures designed for the film are amazingly original and exquisitely realized. While this is of the science fiction genre, it's also a relevant statement on issues current to our time and vital to our planet.
