The Hidden Hand is a controversial Award-winning documentary that explores the possibility of an extraterrestrial presence here on Earth. The film takes a keen look at a spectrum of topics like alien abduction, human/alien hybridization, the military's reverse-engineering of alien technology and the government cover-up of anything related to extraterrestrials. Is preoccupation with E.T.'s a form of cultural madness, or is something really going on? How would E.T. contact change the religious and political institutions of our society? The Hidden Hand is full of riveting interviews with experts and experiencers alike: Whitley Strieber, Dr. Edgar Mitchell, the 6th astronaut on the moon, Paul Hellyer, a former Canadian Defence Minister, Richard Dolan, Jim Marrs, Linda Moulton Howe, Col. John Alexander, Lyn Buchanan, Clifford Stone, Nassim Haramein, David Icke, Dr. Roger Leir, Graham Hancock and Paola Harris, among others. The shadowy world of UFOs is suddenly brought to light. Written by James Carman

If extraterrestrial beings ever saw this film, they'd walk out of the theater
28 May 2014 | by jcsolorzanoSee all my reviews

I'm not trying to be rude neither to undermine the work and time spent on developing this "documentary", but everything showed here is nothing short than collective delusion.

A single individual believing something that may sound far fetched as it is not based on any evidence whatsoever is simply wrong, but if you pool together 5, then 10, then 20, then 100 people believing the same far fetched ideas, the delusion feeds itself. After one person says something and the next one believes it and then says something equally crazy and the next person does the same, and so does the next one, so it goes, it is an endless loop of insanity feeding itself.

I'm not saying there's no life somewhere else, it's bound to be, the universe is just too big for us to be alone. But if you're looking for evidence or for structurally sound ideas or theories regarding extraterrestrial life, this equivocally called "documentary" is not for you, Keanu Reeve's The Day the Earth Stood Still or Ben10 make much much much more scientific sense than this.
