Sci-Fi With A Difference, Outstanding!
on 24 March 2015
This will not be everyone's cup of tea but for me this is one of the best sci-fi movies. Just a great storyline located in Africa where an alien mothership has remained over Johannesberg since it arrived and a colony of aliens has settled. Humanity treated them well at first but current times show they are now living in slums, and dealt with total hostility. The story centers around one man who becomes infected and begins to turn into an alien himself, he too becomes rejected from humanity and is in a fight for survival. The film is quite moving as he comes across an alien and his son who have the means to leave the planet and return home. On the surface it is a sci fi movie, with aliens and lots of blood and shooting and everything you would expect, but underneath there is a far more deeper meaning, perhaps more so with being set in Africa, of humans dislike for anything different, be it race, colour or creature. Well worth watching and Team Alien all the way! 5 stars :-)
