Alien Nation Reviews

Steve Newton
Georgia Straight

With the sci-fi and horror aspects toned down, Alien Nation becomes little more than a cop show with a twist-and one that will satisfy only the most gullible of action fans.

Cinema em Cena

Uma idéia potencialmente instigante que acaba sendo desperdiçada por um roteiro tomado pelos clichês.

| Original Score: 2/5

Dispatch-Tribune Newspapers

Fascinating and somewhat timely themed sci-fi flick, a minor classic.

| Original Score: 5/5

Film Journal International

Smart sci-fi premise should have made a better movie

| Original Score: 3/5

Fantastica Daily

Caan is good, but this is just a very standard buddy cop movie disguised as a sci-fi thriller. Plays better on TV, though.

| Original Score: 2/5

Patinkin in one of his best, most memorable performances

Fun gimmick cop movie with aliens

| Original Score: 3/5

It begins focusing on the cross-cultural and human dimensions of the tale but it turns into just another police flick replete with crashing cars and endless shootouts.

A shallow dissertation on race relations made watchable by the sci-fi/Police thriller theme. Caan and Patankin have good chemistry, and there are some amusing culture clashes.

| Original Score: 3/5

Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

OK s-f that failed to capitalize on an interesting premise.

| Original Score: 2/5

It's 70% cop schpiel and 30% science-fiction fun. Switch those percentages and we'd be calling it a classic.

| Original Score: 3/5

Movie Metropolis

...the premise goes nowhere. Instead, it begins and ends as an ordinary police mystery, complete with gun fights, chase scenes, and things blowing up in the night.

| Original Score: 5/10

James Kendrick
Q Network Film Desk

takes a fascinating sci-fi idea and squanders it on a routine police procedural that is less complex and engaging than a typical one-hour TV show

| Original Score: 2/4
