Product description

Product Description

Charlie Sheen stars as radio astronomer Zane Ziminsky, who listens to cosmic noise every night, waiting to hear any kind of emission from space that could signify an alien presence. When he picks up a shockwave from space he thinks he could have found what he has been waiting for, but after taking his tape to his boss he is unexpectedly laid off. Zane decides to investigate further on his own.

From Amazon.co.uk

Calling this 1996 science fiction thriller "a glorified B movie," isn't a criticism. Writer-director David Twohy managed to get interesting material on the screen despite a limited budget, and the film is just believable enough to be satisfying as a tale of paranoid conspiracy. If you can ignore the hokey parts and accept Charlie Sheen as noted radio astronomer Zane Ziminski, you'll get thoroughly involved when the reception of an alien radio signal leads him to Mexico and to a huge underground power plant operated by aliens bent on the eventual takeover of Earth. Ron Silver is suitably chilling as the astronomer's boss, whose real identity is more horrifying than Ziminski ever imagined. The underground alien lair is memorably creepy, and The Arrival is just smart enough to qualify as more than a guilty pleasure. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
