      cees t Kinda slow, but decent budget. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member The underlying story around a UFO is reasonable but the hokey 80s directing and poor effects limit the script to something pretty basic. Avoid. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Very interesting but the episode about the moon landing is so false. Many know that Apollo 11 never landed on the moon on July 1969. Since 1969 they should be able to travel to the moon every year! One of the biggest lie of the century. We didn't have the technology in 1969. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member The book was better. The movie iwas made iat a time when nielson still controlled television ratings and the 7 forbidden words were a thing. I highly suggest you read the book if you can find a copy on amazon. There was also a tv pilot made which was much more faithful tot he book, but it was deemed unacceptably vulgar due to having a sexually REASSIGNED actress(formerly male). in a role where the aliens use a virus to "change him into a woman". Something which NO ONE would bat an eye at today. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member I was flipping through, looking for something to watch & I came across this movie.I'm not normally into movies about outer space, UFO's & stuff like that but after seeing all the names that were in it, Gary Collins, Robert Vaughn, Joseph Campanella but most of all, Darren McGavin (Sorry if I forgot anybody else) I knew I had to check it out.Hangar 18 turned out to be pretty good (Kinda makes you wonder, what do they know that they don't want us to know? Know what I'm saying?) It was interesting to see the outside & inside of the ship, everybody trying to figure out how & what made it work, the 2 astronauts who were accused of causing the accident trying to clear their names & the officials doing everything they can to keep the UFO under wraps.The best part of the movie had to be the ending, the twist within a twist.I also read on IMDB that in 1983 Hangar 18 was released under the name Invasion Force which had an alternate ending.I wouldn't mind seeing the alternate ending but if I don't, no bother.Hangar 18 isn't a movie I'd buy but it is worth watching, if you're a fan of extraterrestrial movies or not Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member It's a campy X-Files before it was X-Files was relevant.

      Larry Vitacco Philadelphia Gay News The key to enjoying Hangar 18 is not taking it too seriously - just a little bit, around the edges. Rated: 2.5/4 May 27, 2020 Full Review Jesús Fernández Santos El Pais (Spain) The film resembles a television series, even though its special effects are superior.
