Fine special effects, eclectic casting, and the freeze-frame-worthy, clothing-free debut of a blonde bombshell made this cheesy science fiction/horror hybrid a cut above its B-grade roots. At a top-secret Utah facility headed up by Dr. Xavier Fitch (Ben Kingsley), scientists have created "Sil" (Natasha Henstridge), a half-human, half-alien product of experiments with DNA codes obtained from beyond the stars.

Takes a clever premise and turns it in to soft core porn with a clunky ending.
Director Roger Donaldson's cartoonlike, computer-generated shots of the alien in battle are the ultimate cop-out in a film more deserving of the title Feces.
It is no masterpiece, but after some of the schlock seen this year, it is nice to see a science-fiction horror film that delivers.
An enjoyable creature feature where the creature just happens to mask itself as a beautiful, often-naked blonde. Nothing more than a big-budget exploitation flick, but it has some good shock moments.
As slyly smart as it is silly, and the flick delivers a clever idea that's wedged in between some rather slick action scenes.
...she's a beautiful, horny, outer-space babe who just wants to copulate, and when she doesn't get her way, boy, does she get angry!
Violent kill-fest of a sci-fi/horror movie. Sexy monster, though.
Does this film know it's funny? Does it think it's scary? In truth, it's enough of both to enjoy.
A great monster chase movie, some cool gore, and Henstridge had a promising debut. Too bad it never went anywhere.
