      Joe W I don't get why people hate this movie It's an underrated sci fi classic It's like if the x files , twilight zone and outer limits had a baby It's a slow start at first but once it gets going it's an excellent movie Truly underrated sci fi Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/23/24 Full Review A B A cast a B list actors join forces with a truly abysmal screenwriter to waste two hours of your life that you'll never get back. Avoid. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 11/19/23 Full Review T The movie is well acted with a great cast , but the plot leaves you stumped. Aliens kidnapped their kids and can make people vanished in the blink of an eye . Yet they let two people run around causing trouble for their plan. Makes absolutely no sense 😕 Rated 1 out of 5 stars 10/30/23 Full Review R L nonsensical plot. Julianne Moore somehow made the character believable! Rated 2 out of 5 stars 05/26/23 Full Review Michael L Not a bad movie but not great. Part psychological thriller that morphs into sci fi. Grab a bag of popcorn and enjoy. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/23/23 Full Review Green C An absurd plot but it held me to the end. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      David Ansen Newsweek The real suspense is in seeing just how far out Gerald Di Pego's script is going to go, as this paranoid thriller leaps to the supernatural. It's poppycock, but well directed: Ruben delivers two or three guaranteed jolts. Mar 13, 2018 Full Review Nell Minow Common Sense Media Creepy thriller not for faint of heart. Rated: 2/5 Dec 28, 2010 Full Review Empire Magazine Rated: 2/5 Apr 1, 2006 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews An undemanding but somewhat entertaining mumbo-jumbo thriller, but not one to be remembered as good. Rated: C+ May 7, 2019 Full Review Mark Halverson Sacramento News & Review Rated: 2/5 Aug 7, 2008 Full Review Rob Gonsalves Rob's Movie Vault Who wants to see -- or remember -- a wildly implausible thriller that's also grim and humorless?
