Along W/ ALIEN CARGO, One Of The Best super lo-budget sci fi flicks
2 November 2008 | by See all my reviews

It's great to see Zack Ward finally pull a "Lee Marvin". Typically cast as a villain or supporting character actor, he is masterful as the hero and even "gets the girl".

Brea Grant, hot off "Heroes", where she really shines and steals all her scenes... is recognizable : = ) as the alien.

Unlike a typical Sci-Fi Channel production, it is surprisingly devoid of eye-rolling dialog and moronic plot. Yes, the bar is set rather low for such a cheapo production but it actually doesn't look cheap. It has everything it needs production-wise to tells this story.

The plot twists are not mind-blowing but still plentiful and the thing really zips along. It was reminding me of "Alien Cargo" simply from the aspect of getting a mountain of character and plot out of a molehill of sets... and then... the ending. Im not giving anything away by saying it is ... uncompromising. KUDOS.

And then the coda. Not a spoiler : = )
