This is a quality Science fiction film, starring Dennis Quaid and a virtually unrecognisable Louis Gosset Jr. Set in the middle of a war between earth and a lizard like alien race. Quaid and Gosset Jr crash land on an uninhabited alien world, at first filled with hate for each other, slowley they realise that cooperation equals survival.
This is engrosing stuff with strong racial undertones. Well sripted the chemistry between Quaid and Gosset Jr makes the film work. The special effects are a mixed bag the space shots are very dated now, but the make up on Gosset Jr is outstanding.
Its not all action but its very entertaining and heart felt. The special features are a bit limited, theres a trailer and an extended scene, but the film is good enough to carry it and is well recommended.

I hate being nostalgic about movies, but I do remember a time when imagination was evident in every part of a production, when film posters were dynamic, visceral and iconic, when films looked like they were shot on film and not an HD camera with a sunset tint, when scores were done by orchestras instead of synthesizers and death metal guitars and, most important of all, when the lack of CGI technology forced the filmmakers into achieving visual effects through more practical means. The 1980s were filled with such movies and, looking back, I am glad that I grew up in that decade. Children now are exposed to altogether soulless movies.

Set in the late 21st Century, Enemy Mine has humans reaching out into the depths of space after achieving world peace. But a rival species, the alien race of the Drax, don't take to kindly to humans poking about the galaxy and an interstellar war kicks off. A human pilot (Dennis Quaid) and a lone Drac (Louis Gossett Jnr.) crash land on a remote desert planet and learn, the hard way, to stick together if they want to survive. Despite their ultimate conflict they discover that they are not all that different from each other and neither yet both are to blame for the war.

Enemy Mine suffered from severe problems during production. Apparently the original director, Richard Longcraine (Wimbledon, Richard III), shot the entire film on location in Iceland before being replaced by Wolfgang Petersen who re-shot the whole film all over again but changed the story somewhat in the process. So, in reality, there are two completely different versions of Enemy Mine. One which was released into cinemas that has become a classic in its own right and another that only exists in the vaults of Twentieth Century Fox. I would love to see this alternate cut.

It is always curious that science-fiction, a genre which demands the greatest special effects of any, often manages to be the most tactful and intimate. The visual bombast of future worlds and technology fails to swamp the tender statements about the human condition.
"Enemy Mine" meets both the criteria of superior science fiction: technological and spiritual potency. Yet it has failed to recieve the attention it deserves. Humanity is at war with an alien race and no one hates the reptilian rascals more than Dennis Quaid. That is until he finds himself stranded on a planet with his only company being, yes, you guessed it, a member of said alien species.
The inital fighting subsides as the two have to set aside their differences, survival on the inhospitable planet demanding teamwork. It is the burgeoning relationship between these two different characters that provides the emotional core of the film, both must overcome prejudice and learn to accept the other. They soon discover that their mutual hatred is based on misconceptions, their war, no longer justified.
Superb alien make-up and some nice planetary set-pieces assist in realising the future portrayed. The allegory of racial conflict and the need for tolerance lends the piece contemporary relevance.

Many light years from earth the space station is under threat of attack from the
'Dracon's' a fierce battle between ships from both sides follows, 'Earth' vessels
pilot 'Willis Davidge' (Dennis Quaid) gives chase to a enemy ship, the 'Dracon'
pilot ejects after his ship is damaged as both ships are pulled in by the planet
they approach, 'Willis's' ship collides with the stricken 'Dracon' vessel which
leads to his ship crash landing on the desolate planet.
Only 'Willis' survives the crash, knowing that the 'Dracon' was also on the planet,
he sets out to finish the ''fight''
However the two after fronting each other with hostile intent realize that survival
outweighed the need to kill the other.
Survival and the hope of rescue encourages them despite language difficulties
to work together.
The planet proves to be even more inhospitable than they could ever imagine,
their only unlikely hope is to be rescued......a friendship of sorts emerges between
them, they both try to understand the other.
(be grateful that the 'Drac' 'Jeriba' (jerry) Shigan' (Louis Gossett jnr) decided to
learn English, had he not done so we'd not have understood the banter)
There are many dangers the two have to confront and an unexpected to 'Willis'
that is, event to come, 'Jeriba' will ask his earthly companion to care for the
child he is about to give birth too.
There are moments of both humour and intensity with for a 1985 movie also some
good visual content.
The film in many ways turns into a touching tale as we see 'Willis' desperately
trying to fulfil the vow he made to 'Jeriba' to care for the son 'Willis' has called
The film though a little slow to get going is worth sticking with, worth a spin.
