Audience Reviews for Hangar 18


An early attempt to cash in on the UFO conspiracy genre. By today's standard it's rather horrible but maybe a little decent for it's time.

Views like a TV movie, with similar production values. This movie had the opportunity to vigorously explore some wide ranging topics like alien technology and physiology as well as our cultural readiness to encounter alien beings. Instead we get "we have met the alien, and he is us" and anti-US government propaganda. Not my cup of tea.

If you like older SciFi movies this is a must see! Sometimes hoaky but watchable! Really boggles the mind to realize how quickly tech has advanced in only 30years!
