Many happy childhood memories watching this! Great Sunday movie and though a little violence/ minor gore/ PG+, with a great story line I'd advise you get your "capable" kids to watch it too!

The concept of Asexual reproduction is interesting when Davidge(Dennis Quaid)an Earth star fighter at war with a race of Lizard like people called The Dracs crash lands after shooting down one of their fighters on an arid planet where both learn to live and help each other survive! Primitive special effects and at times High School like acting values detract slightly from what must be kind of good entertainment because I have watched 12 Times. It is like a trike that is fun to ride but you would not want your friends to catch you riding it?

A decent film for the first two-thirds of it. Two space pilots are downed on an almost inhospitable planet after a dog-fight above the planet, the species are engaged in a war with each other at the time. After an initial round of hostility towards each other, post crash-landing, the two survivors start to develop a mutually beneficial co-operation that eventually develops into a close friendship.
Robinson Crusoe has already met his Man Friday in this.
The alien, convienientally for us, learning English quickly enough to make the relationship possible. It is noteable that it was the alien, Draco, who was the more merciful of the two to start with.
From the birth of Junior Drac, which sees senior Drac expire, the story follows the education of junior Drac, a bit mawkish at times and a little lacking in wisdom as well: Why would Davidge have not taught Junior of the dangers of meeting other humans much sooner? Perhaps that would have ruined the story. And from the time the "scavengers" (Slave-drivers:notably humans again) arrive and inflict their brand of superior being brutality on Junior and Davidge, the film soon decends into a classical example of worst of B-movie: "Open the doors or I'm gonna blast my way out!" And he does. What from a military space station on your side!!
The ending fight scenes or more like on old B-movie western. And this is what lets down an otherwise decent film.

Weird piece of sci-fi, that for some reason turn into a family friendly tale as the movie goes go. It really takes it's time to move on too, becoming slightly boring & tedious to watch.

Handsome production and superb make-up effects transform Louis Gossett Jr. into a very convincing alien, but the film struggles to generate a plot, mainly due to a very simple premise. Human and enemy alien become stranded on a deserted planet after a dogfight, then learn to coexist. A little too chummy sometimes, but things finally pick up when slavers appear towards the final act.

SFX from the 60's, make up from the 70's and a story that's timeless.

Rasism i rymden. Och ombytliga könsroller. Det är två av motiven som återfinns i Enemy Mine, som är en modern Robinson Crusoe-tolkning, fast i rymden. Den idén filmatiserades redan på sextiotalet i form av Robinson Crusoe on Mars, men här görs det aningen bättre, åtminstone tekniskt. Filmen lider under långa stunder av att Dennis Quaid beter sig som ett rövhål, men det är förstås en del av poängen: det är inte människorna vi tittare ska sympatisera med. Tyvärr gör det också att man struntar i hur det går för protagonisten. Den första, och framför allt den tredje, akten är avsevärt mycket bättre än den långsamma och monotona andra akten, som går ut på att Quaid och hans ödleliknande kamrat bråkar om ingenting i oändlighet.

A classic waiting to be rediscovered.

Teaches tolerance in the face of prejudice, a good movie with a strong moral message, that does not fail to entertain.

História Emocionante,Que Não Decepciona Até O Final,E A Atuação Espetacular De Dennis Quaid É Uma Das Partes Essenciais Para O Filme
½ September 19, 2013
Slow paced but well acted scifi that has an interesting dynamic between the leads and some interesting religious overtones, although it seem to get very convenient near the end for plots sake, but the final scene is a nice wrap up.

An underrated classic.

Although well-meaning, it's just a little too hard to take serious and very predictable. Also feels like a film that would have done better in the 70s.

Funny and exciting science fiction film.

Some people rate this movie very high, but it's just one of those movies to see because everyone else said to. It's decent. It had a good plot going, but the movie didn't have enough action, special effects, or emotional bonding. It was mostly a bunch of chit-chat in this less dramatic sci-fi Cast Away-esque film.

A likeable film about some sort of crashed pilot becoming friends with this Alien.
