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
'Tommy'
The film though a little slow to get going is worth sticking with, worth a spin.

On the surface, a sci-fi action-adventure movie. But underneath is a compelling message about racism. The evolving relationship between the two main characters is heart-warming.

Moving parable set in the distant future - man versus alien ends up as man cares for alien, even bringing up an alien child. Wonderful, and considering its age, really well made. One to watch.

Good film, interesting story and concept. Acting a bit heavy handed in the beginning but well worth watching.

This is a waste of money. The soundtrack vocals do not play, only the background music. A good film ruined, as it is un-playable! Don't bother to order it.
