A cop discovers that there's something unusual about his new partner in this unusual sci-fi thriller. A seemingly well-mannered stock broker one day snaps, robbing a bank, stealing a Ferrari, and driving straight into a police barricade without any thought for his own safety, and he's mowed down by a hail of bullets. The detective assigned to the case, Tom Beck (Michael Nouri), thinks that he notices a strange look in the eye of the thief, but when FBI agent Lloyd Gallagher (Kyle MacLachlan)

The Hidden is a well-constructed thriller, directed with swift assurance by Jack Sholder, brought down by an utterly conventional sci-fi ending.
Powered by a driving rock score, this is by turns sleek, reckless, and smoothly effective, like a Ferrari with a psycho killer at the wheel.
A jokey sci-fi horror movie about the desperate pursuit of a vile ''thing'' from outer space.
Too predictable, and even though wickedly fun at times, it's only halfway as awesome as it might have been.
Its virtues are ones that you almost never encounter in movies of this sort; it's really a unique little item -- if there's such a thing as punk soulfulness, then this movie has it.
A sleeper that talks like a thriller and walks like a thriller, but has more brains than the average thriller.
A fast and furious blast of sci-fi action that was obviously inspired by The Terminator.
One of those pleasant surprises that turned out far more intelligent and exciting than it looked, and it holds up well nearly 20 years later.
What could have been a great sci-fi horror flick with awesome effects priorities talky buddy-cop thriller and alien comedy clichés
The Hidden is uninspired but still reasonably good fun for action movie and sci-fi fans.
Fun yet predictable spin on the evil-alien-jumping-from-human-body-to-body-and-the-good-alien-out-to-kill-it genre.
It has action, science fiction, horror, splatter, elaborate chase sequences, quirks, and even a spot-on (and to the point) critique of country music.
Full of great car chases . . . gleefully violent antisocial behavior, and enough bullet-fests to qualify for an honorable mention from the John Woo appreciation society
Superior B-movie fare cleverly disguised as a Terminator rip-off.
An interesting s-f, crime thriller. Fast-paced, action-packed and most enjoyable.
Quick-pace, rapid-fire sci-fi action mixture. Fun stuff!
