"... a sometimes-brilliant metaphor for the experience of Asian immigrants in the United States."

'Alien Nation' fails to offer the viewer more than a vague entertainment. [Full Review in Spanish]

Instead of exploring the differences and strangeness of the aliens, and giving them the kind of interesting particularity that "Blade Runner" did, Alien Nation can't domesticate and demystify its aliens quickly enough.

There are the requisite chase seens, the ingenious murder weapons, the evil propogators of greed andhate. And somehow they don't bury you. In the end, it's the wit and heart of Alien Nation that win you over.

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 idia potencialmente instigante que acaba sendo desperdiada por um roteiro tomado pelos clichs.

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

Smart sci-fi premise should have made a better movie

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

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.
