By Mr. Stephen Kennedy TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
James Spader brings an element of class to an otherwise derivative sci-fi.
It's not quite as B-movie as the title suggests, however, with a reasonably interesting story which rises above the expected B-movie excuses for bared flesh and gore..
Basically, as the plot progresses you realise are watching a remake of The Thing, as a bunch of ill equipped scientists discover a mysterious craft which unleashes something unexpected.. only then you realise it is in fact morphing into a remake of Predator, as you get the first person perspective of the alien stalking the scientists, only to discover you are watching a weird version of Outbreak, as a strange virus... oh, why bother, you get the idea.. At least it nicks ideas from the best.
Suffice to say, it does hang together plot wise, although action movie buffs will likely be disappointed - the ending is more Abyss than Alien...
Barely passable effects and decent acting hold things together enough for a watch, but its not particularly a credit to anyone involved.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good 7 Nov 2006
By Andrew W. M. Perry VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Despite a title that suggests a dreadfully cheesy B-movie, this is actually surprisingly good. The sci-fi elements act as a catalyst for a distinctly human plot, rather than the focus, and the plausibly written characters work very well to further that.

The production design is also particularly nice, and the spaceship... well, just watch the thing.

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting alien film 27 Nov 2003
Format:DVD
There are limitations on just how good a stuck-in-the-lab film can be. This film is definitely above average.
Spader plays Julian Rome, a linguist and mathematician who once worked on the SETI project. A solid object has been found in the ice (emitting a powerful radio signal). Rome is called in to help decipher the signal.
Is the object signs of intelligence outside this world or something more prosiac? Is the object, and any occupants, benign or hostile?
The is also a subplot: Rome has a habit of dallying with his students. One of his ex-students, whom he had a relationship with, is one of the researchers at the station. Will he get back with her or go for Nyla?
This film is a lot better than "Deceived". What I liked about the film were characters are well drawn and things are not as black and white as they first seem. At the end of the day, however, the genre limits the possibilities.
In short, this film is a good film for those who like the genre (and those who have yet to be converted may want to give this film a try).

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice B movie 15 Jan 2011
By Strv 74
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This one is a nice surprise. I expected a B movie with everything in that category but in fact it was not at all bad. The Story was not original but it was well played out. Actors behaved rather good and the alien was interesting. I usually see all Sf movies and this one is worth seeing without any bad conscience of how you spend your free time. Only, why do an alien race that are able to build biological spaceships stay unable to cure a decease they have had for zillions of years? And was Mars populated once?

3.0 out of 5 stars On A budget 20 May 2010
Format:DVD
OK, so this film was done on a tight Budget, if your expecting a forgotten James Cameron type film, then you will be sadly disappointed. However, if you like something a bit quirky then this may be your cup of tea. The story (Such as it is) is a cross between "The Thing" and "ET", maybe a bit of "Hanger 17". Essentially it has all been done before, but this is not necessarily a bad film, just lacks originality. What I did like was the fact that the Russians actually speak russian (Subtitles at the bottom of the screen.) Non of this speak english with a Russian accent. This was kind of refreshing. A pleasant way to spend a wet afternoon. Just don't expect anything cerebal, or to be blown away by the special effects.

3.0 out of 5 stars Replica of "The Thing"! 17 May 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie starts off well but after a while it feels like a copy of "The Thing" by John Carpenter from 1982. I think I prefer the original!
