Quotes

Dr. Henderson: Perhaps nothing more than a curiosity. Or you may find something beyond evaluation; the secret of who we are, how we got here, where we came from. Did we walk out of the Garden of Eden or did we crawl out of some primeval sea? Or have we always been fascinated by the stars, wondering about them, haunted by them because their light's along some half-remembered road we travelled once. Isn't that a search worth making?

One of the first realistic 'aliens-among-us' movies
6 December 2002 | by allondro-2See all my reviews

I was eleven when this movie aired on TV, and it really captured my imagination. I was a sci-fi fan at an early age, and was really annoyed at the very low production values and cheesy special effects of most series of the time. This film was a surprise; a believable story and characters written to a higher grade point average than most TV movies. The premise of ancient alien contact has been used since many times, but it was quite original here. If you are a Kurt Russell fan, then this is an excellent example of his post-Disney acting. It was obviously written as a pilot for a series that didn't sell. Too bad. But historically, intelligent TV never prevails.
