They’re here already!
I wasn’t expecting much from this one, other than an attempt to cash in on The X-Files, but I was pleasantly surprised – this is one summer movie that’s actually better than its trailers.
Charlie Sheen uses both of his expressions as an obsessed scientist who catches a radio message from another star. When he tells his boss (Ron Silver, who’s much better since he started shaving), he finds himself not only fired, but blackballed – and dumped by his girl (gorgeous Teri Polo). His quest for answers lead him to some extremely hazardous Central American hotels, before he discovers a secret base of covertly hostile aliens. Aside from one or two questionable plot points, this is a solid pulp sci-fi thriller with some really cool aliens.
