Storyline

Former government physicist Bob Lazar made headlines world-wide in 1989 when he came forward with his account of reverse-engineering an alien spacecraft for the US military. The reason the public even knows the name Area 51 is because Lazar came forward about the work he did at the formerly secret military base. His testimony remains the most controversial and important UFO story of all time. This film intimately chronicles the challenges and travails of a cosmic whistleblower. Burdened with a revolutionary secret, he had to choose between his oath to his country or his conscience. Corbell's film explores Lazar's groundbreaking claims and the devastating impact it has had on his life over the course of the last 30 years, including rare and never before revealed footage guaranteed to alter the landscape of the debate. He blew the whistle, shocked the world, then went silent - until now. Written by Jeremy Kenyon Lockyer Corbell

A must watch - but a poor one.
24 December 2018 | by akworley-684-675592See all my reviews

First, this is a must watch for anyone who isn't aware of Bob Lazar or the story of Area 51. There's important information exposed that will leave you with questions, and maybe some answers.

However, the style of the documentary is a big letdown and distracts from the content and overall quality. Too many poorly done effects and phone calls that appear (although probably are not) staged. The documentary has a cheap, cheesy and almost sales-pitch like feel to it at times, which makes the story seem less genuine.

I'd still suggest watching this, but overall it suffers from trying too hard in the wrong areas.
