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

Fascinating and somewhat timely themed sci-fi flick, a minor classic.
| Original Score: 5/5

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.

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

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

...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.

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
