A refreshing approach to the subject.
1 October 2018 | by docdetroit99See all my reviews

As a physicist and a SciFi fan, I rather enjoyed the movie. It was very approachable in terms of dialog and the science seemed reasonable and accurate. I would highly recommend this if you like a thoughtful SciFi approach to UFOs.
