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

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

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

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.

Uma idéia potencialmente instigante que acaba sendo desperdiçada por um roteiro tomado pelos clichês.
| Original Score: 2/5

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

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.
