Enemy Mine

Critics Consensus

Enemy Mine extracts thrilling sci-fi pulp from Dennis Quaid and Louis Gossett Jr.'s chemistry and inventive production design, but an overextended story diminishes the power of its central duo's relationship.

    It's either one of the worst movies ever made or a B-Movie classic, that's really the only way I can see it. The dialogue and forced racism element is utterly hilarious. Then there's just this really bizarre alien birthing/aging process that I will never truly understand. While it's extremely enjoyable and fun, I don't think any of it was intentional.

    "Enemy Mine" was one of the good movies of the 80's. It's about an alien called a Drac (Louis Gossett, Jr.) and a human (Robert Quaid), who's species are brutal enemies. But they must learn to cooperate with each other to survive on the barren planet that they both crashed on. "Enemy Mine" is a good movie in just about every way. The special effects, landscapes, and aliens are great. Quaid and Gossett Jr. also do a good job of acting. The movie drastically changes when one of them has a baby. If you like sci-fi movies, "Enemy Mine" would be a good movie to get. My only complaint is that it didn't have much action in it like many other classic sci-fi movies, but it's still a good movie. NOTE: That was my Amazon review from the year 2000. Not sure I liked this movie as much as most people did at the time, but it's certainly not bad either.
