Millions of people have seen UFOs and many even recall personal encounters with strange entities. The popular view is that these are advanced aliens visiting us from far, far away. This compelling new film takes a deeper and honest look at the events, the beliefs, the experts, and the people that have shaped our views in all things otherworldly. The truth is more surprising than most people realize.
Alien Intrusion: Unmasking a Deception is based on the Amazon Top 50 bestselling book, Alien Intrusion: UFOs & the Evolution Connection (2005) by Gary Bates. His book is the only creation book to achieve this feat. See more »
Ok, but not a home run.
* Had a reasonable CGI budget with some good animations and special effects.
* Many hat-tips in the score to familiar sci-fi movies like 2001, Alien: Covenant and a very Star Trek-esque credits scene (cheesy, but still clever).
* Gary Bates compassion for people going through difficult, unexplained and I suspect ridiculed experiences really shined.
* Reviewing the chances for alien visitation and some of the science of interstellar travel was well done.
* The review of the Roswell incident was very good.
* I felt the movie was about a half hour longer than it needed to be.
* I felt that although the naturalism/evolution connection is obviously there for the Christian, it felt forced (like "how do we throw this in"), was introduced very early in the movie when you didn't really have a contextual anchor and distracted the viewer from the main theme of the movie (the producers would probably disagree). Sarfatti's initial scene could easily have been dropped and nothing would be lost from the overarching premise of the movie. I think this would have unnecessarily turned off a lot of secular viewers from the outset.
* Some statistics were presented but I would have liked more.
* It's format is not well suit for studying in a home group, and I'm not sure it's the kind of movie I'd ask a skeptic over to watch.
* I left feeling I had some information, but I don't really have much in the way of tools if I came across experiencers. Although Gary's compassion comes through, you are left to pick up how you should act more-or-less by osmosis.
