Britani Bateman Underwood,
Three young conspiracy theorists attempt to uncover the mysteries of Area 51, the government's secret location rumored to have hosted encounters with alien beings. What they find at this hidden facility exposes unimaginable secrets.
Saw it yesterday at the Fantasy Film Fest here in Hamburg. Technical quality and cinematography were respectable, this seems much easier to get right with today's digital filming technology than a decade ago. There is a bit of a B movie atmosphere later on, but at least it wasn't like I was watching a video game - something that happens all too often with major productions these days. The acting is quite alright, I've seen worse in top productions. It was a bit of a pity that the ETs are shown rather early (although it's fairly clear from the beginning that they will appear), suspense could have been higher without this. Also, the movie tells its story in a very classical way and cites many well-known sources, so if you want innovation or surprises, you'll have to look elsewhere. Nor can you expect another Alien or ID4. Still fun to watch, with a macabre ending.
