Alien Nation Reviews

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

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.

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.

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