Product Description

Sci-fi horror in which a group of journalists touring the top secret Area 51 facility stumble upon one of its most mysterious inhabitants. When pressure from the American population forces the Air Force to provide journalists with access to Area 51 Colonel John Martin (Bruce Boxleitner) is assigned the duty of escorting members of the press around the facility. However the tour of journalists Sam (John Shea) Claire (Vanessa Branch) Mindy (Lena Clark) and Kevin (Damon Lipari) goes disastrously wrong when one of the facility's alien inmates takes advantage of their visit to escape from his cell. How much do the journalists really want to see what goes on at Area 51?

1.0 out of 5 stars Pretty crap... 16 July 2012
By A Man
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Some people say they were pleasantly surprised.
I trusted these people and bought it. It was pretty crap.
Acting wasn't really that great. Really the only thing the movie had going for it was the dude from Tron was in it.
I thought it would be dark, scary, full of jumps, brutal but nope. Fair enough it's got violence but it's just as cheesey as the damn film. Dude gets stabbed in the face, looked like he enjoyed it.
Please for love of Gandhi, don't buy it. Trust me, you would rather watch something else.

2.0 out of 5 stars No go area 19 Feb 2012
I first found out about Area 51 in the mid nineties as the height of the X-Files' fame. Area 51 is the codename given to a section of land in the Nevada desert in America. Allegedly, it contains the remains of crashed UFOs etc. I always thought it would make a good movie. I still think it would - the emphasis being that it would make a GOOD movie. Sadly, this is no good.

Er, where do I begin? The cheap special effects? The shoddy acting? The wafer-thin characters? The ludicrous plot holes? It's all there - unfortunately.

Basically, what you have here, is a made-for-TV movie, i.e. wobbly sets, unknown actors and not much more.

Bottom line - it's just short of okay. Some people may like it, but not many. There are so many better alien films out there - like `Alien' for example.

Plus side - the leading lady is cute (that's probably more a plus point for the guys - I can see too many women swooning over sci-fi stalwart Bruce Boxleighter).

Oh, well, never mind. I may have wasted an hour and a half of my life, but it was still more entertaining than a Transformers movie.

(and, who gave this film 5/5 on Amazon? they serious must be taking the pi...)

1.0 out of 5 stars Sooooooo lame! 13 Nov 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
very crap indeed. There are many fine alien films out there, this is a very, very long way from being one of them.

I agree with you, the cover does offer promise, but it fails to deliver. Some of the cast you will recognise from good work elsewhere, but here they combine their efforts to fail dismally and miserably at the same time. They fail 'dismerably'. There, its so poor i felt the need to invent a word just to express it.

This is an all time low.

Move on, please...there's nothing to see here...

1.0 out of 5 stars Naff 51 10 Oct 2011
Please save you money and buy something worth watching. This is worse than B movie quality. In a nutshell: Naff!

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible film. 10 Aug 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Unbelivably terrible film, don't waste your time. Terrible plot, terrible acting, terrible aliens. It's not scary, it's not thrilling, it's not action-packed or suspenseful. It's terrible. But not even terrible enough to be funny. Just terrible.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dear, oh Dear! 6 Aug 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This is one of the worst films I can remember watching for a long, long time. The acting is just......HAM. As each entirely unconvincing alien makes an appearance, every battle-hardened soldier with gun in hand just stands gawping at it in mock terror until he is either killed or the alien makes a getaway. It continues throughout this truly awful film. I laughed loudest at the end during an aerial shot of a hangar exploding as some 'dead' bodies on the ground move away from the blast!

Don’t be deceived by the recent release date. This must have been made on a budget in the 1980s. It shows.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother... 7 July 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Very disappointing special effects for the aliens - in fact I wouldn't call them special! Could have been so much better.

2.0 out of 5 stars No.... No.... 10 Jun 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm sorry. We quit this one after the blood splatter began to cover the screen and body parts started to fly. It just didn't do anything particularly interesting or new. Aliens set to take over the world. Again. And again.
