I am a big fan of sci-fi and space movies, and I have always been fascinated by them. When I first saw the previews for this movie I thought it was going to be a lot of fun, but I was wrong. It is not a "great" movie, but it is entertaining and I really enjoyed it. The movie has a strong story, and the acting was very good. I think this movie is a bit dated, but it is a really good sci-fi movie. I can't wait to see it again.

This film is about a space-shark hunting the earth's population to extinction. It's all about the predations of man and the loss of life of the earth. This is a fantastic film. I can't say it's a great film because it is overlong. There are some slow parts. But the story and the ideas are so great. The ending is so sad. I will admit I was a little confused. But it's worth it. This is a must-see film for anyone who enjoys science fiction.

This is a good movie to watch if you're looking for a quick-watching, not too deep and not too slow movie. It's not so much the story as it is the production quality. There is an incredible production quality to it, which is also one of the reasons it is so good. The colors and lighting in this movie are also great, which I think is also a good point. The soundtrack is also great, although I'm not a big fan of it. It's a great movie to watch if you're bored. I'm looking forward to seeing it again!

A great science fiction film with a solid story line, decent effects and acting, but the technical aspects are not at all on par with the greatest of the space epics. The main issue for me was that the film didn't have that right blend of action and a great story line. The story line was good, but the action seemed a bit lacking. It was a good film, but it could have been so much more.

I remember watching this when it first came out and thought it was interesting, but a little silly. But it was so popular that I bought a copy of the movie when it came out. I have watched it several times, and enjoy it every time. It is a good, solid movie. Not to be taken too seriously, but entertaining. The special effects are awesome. I haven't seen a movie that has ever given me chills and has made me laugh. The cast was great. The movie was very well directed, and the acting was great. The cast was great, and they did a very good job. The story was good, but I have not seen it done like that in a movie. It was a great movie. I will recommend this to anyone who likes good sci-fi, and doesn't take itself too seriously. You won't be disappointed. A 9 out of 10.

This film starts in a dystopian future in which no one is aware of the existence of humans, so instead they have a "soil" that is patrolled by robots. The characters all have the same names and same personalities. A strange thing happens when a man named Kane tries to go to Earth and ends up in a world where he's the only human. The humans are happy with him and the robots are his opposite, he's like a real man, he has a family and he has the same desires that all humans do, which are survival. When he goes to the planet, he meets a woman named Helen and she helps him to reach Earth, where the humans are all, there are also robots, but these are the only ones that work. In the end Kane goes to Earth to find his family, but he comes to the planet with a new idea. He wants to save humanity, but the only way to do that is by going to the moon. What will happen when he comes back? The movie is really a story of love, hope and faith. Kane is a man that can be considered a man of peace and he believes in God, he just doesn't know what that means. The world he's going to is a world that doesn't know how to get along with other species, it's like a prison. In the end he goes to the moon, with the belief that it's his home. But in the end he is still a man of peace. He also tries to make peace with the robot that is hunting him, but it doesn't work out. The ending is sad, but he doesn't know why it's sad. It's because in the end he's trying to save his family and his friends. It's like he thinks that he should do something to save humanity. It's not easy to say what's the meaning of it all. The film is about love, hope and faith.

Although it's set in the 1980's, there's enough stuff in this movie that's still relevant today. The very strong acting is very enjoyable and the ideas presented are still relevant. For instance, NASA has been using a 50'ish woman to help the space program. And they want to create a "man from space" so they can do some experiments. They hire the woman to do that. It's a good idea, but what happens if she doesn't know how to do the experiments? That's when they need her to do the experiments. As they found out, she is not at all the "man from space" that she is supposed to be. She's the girl from the neighborhood, so she has no clue how to do the experiments. So the experiments go awry and the astronauts have to figure out how to get her back on track. There are many interesting things in this movie, such as the NASA scientist going through a speech in a science lab, the few NASA astronauts who have to work in a small house, and the idea that people from outer space would probably not know what Earth is like. I still enjoy this movie, but it doesn't really hit the same level that it did in the 1980's. I still find it enjoyable, but it's not as strong as it was back in the 1980's.

I watched this film on DVD in late 2015, I had never heard of this film before, and I'm glad I did, it's definitely not a "cheap" film, it has a real story to it, the story is really cool, and the film really does do well with the special effects, and the special effects are really awesome, the music is great, and the film is definitely one of the best horror films I've ever seen, definitely worth seeing.

I loved the book, so I was pretty excited about this film. I'm glad I didn't read the book first because it would have made me like the film less. I loved this film, I'm a huge fan of the books and I'll be watching this movie again. I love the new cast, especially Zoe Saldana who is amazing and this is a great change from her typical role as a strong female lead. I can't wait to see what comes next from the other actors. The movie was excellent, I give it a 9 out of 10 and will be buying the DVD. It has some great moments, and this film does not contain the same kind of sci-fi as the first one. I was surprised with how good this film was because the first one was so good but this one is good but not the same, it's much more grounded in reality and a lot more serious. So if you want to see a good sci-fi film, you can't go wrong with this one. I hope to see more of these great actors in future films. I know they will be great. I have not read the books so I can't compare the film to the book, but this film is not bad, it's just different.

After reading some of the other comments on this film I was a little disappointed to see the kind of reviews on here. This film was great, not great but great. It was original and very well made. I just found it to be a very good film. Some of the comments seemed a little out of context. I didn't read any of the comments on here but I just think it would be good if people would stop judging things by the extreme. They need to understand that this film is for the audience to decide. It is not meant to be an exact representation of what happened in the real world. I don't know how accurate the movie is but I think it is very good. And it will go over very well with the audience.

I had been searching for the 'Moon' type of movie for a while, and found this movie on the internet. Although it's only been out for a year, it is one of the best movies I have seen in a long time. I know that a lot of people find it boring, but I found it to be a very interesting movie, which i think anyone would like. If you like science fiction and you can get the space stuff to take it seriously, then you will love it. I also think the acting was very good, although it was not Oscar winning material, but it did a good job. I really like the atmosphere, the plot was very good and it is definitely a movie you should see, but if you're looking for a great movie you will not like, then this is not the one to watch.

I liked the movie, and it was great. The story was interesting, and the acting was good. I loved the relationship between the two leads, as well as the scenery, and the setting. It had a very interesting and unique style. There were some parts that were a little bit silly, but I was able to overlook that, and the movie itself was very entertaining. The movie is unique, and for that reason, it is worth watching. I can't wait to see the sequel.

There are two ways to describe this film: a monster movie (like, say, The Grudge) or a dark, sombre, psychological drama (like, say, The Ring). The first description, which was fairly accurate, was fairly well thought-out and well-paced. However, the second description, which I could actually understand and even sympathize with, was a little slow. This is a film about aliens. One of them is manmade, and the other is a monster. The film is shot in a surrealistic style, with the interior of the ship being rendered in a vibrant, full-color colour, similar to the colours of the alien ships. The editing is crisp and well-shot. It is also reminiscent of a dream-like quality. The acting is good, with the lead, Harry Dean Stanton, being the most interesting and effective actor in the film. The alien characters are the most interesting. Each of them is cast with a mixture of perfect charisma, and unsettling depths. They are a range of horror, from the terrifyingly sweet, to the unsettlingly ominous. The scene with the alien species, and its leader, are the most disturbing, and the best moments of the film. The plot is strong, but the film is very slow. The story is written and directed so that it doesn't feel like it is too long. The end is rather disappointing. The acting is good, but the story is weaker. The film is unique, and the ending is powerful. There are good things about the film, but the story is weak, and the film is better than it could have been. Grade: B

This is an underrated classic. If you haven't seen this movie yet, do so. It's got an incredibly interesting story and has a lot of action. I think this movie is going to be a classic. It's the kind of movie you can watch over and over again. I recommend this movie to everyone.

This is a really good film. It is well acted and makes you think a lot about what we're doing to our planet. It is one of the few films I have seen that will actually get you to think about what you are doing. In this film the characters are very well developed, as you are able to see where they are coming from and where they are going. The end of the film is very well done and really leaves you with a sense of accomplishment. It also makes you think about how we are damaging our planet in the name of "progress". This film has very good special effects. The script is very good and is able to build tension in the first few scenes and still manage to make you think in the end. The acting is very good, especially by the two leads. I will give this a 9 out of 10 because there is not much more I can say about it. I recommend this film to anyone who enjoys science fiction or who is interested in the future of our planet.

I think I've got it on pretty good with the likes of Alien 3, I Robot, Starship Troopers and others. But I have to say, I enjoyed this film the most. The set designs and CGI work on the spaceship were superb. I thought the acting was pretty good too. I really enjoyed the fact that the main character was able to adapt to the environment, the entire crew of the spaceship were in similar circumstances. It is a movie you can watch multiple times and still be engaged. My favourite part of the film was the confrontation between the main character and the main bad guy. I was very satisfied with the ending.

It's a pity that the latest movie with special effects was so bad. It was so good. And the effects were simply amazing. The whole concept of it was fantastic. It had something new. It was very enjoyable. The concept was really interesting. The characters were very interesting. The whole idea of the movie was just a lot of fun. And it was very enjoyable. I can't wait for the next one. And I hope that it is very good.

I'm writing this to let you know that I have seen this movie and liked it. It is a pretty good movie, not great, but it's a good movie. I found myself laughing out loud at some parts. The cast is good, though it is a bit over-the-top. If you like science fiction, then this is the movie for you. It has a couple of interesting ideas that are not done often in science fiction movies. For example, the little kid doesn't know why he's in space. This isn't really a bad thing, but I found it kind of odd. I would have liked to have seen more of the little kid's development and more of the spaceship itself. Overall, I thought the acting was good, and the special effects were excellent. Overall, I would recommend this movie. It is a good movie, but it is not as good as I had hoped.

I like this movie, very much. It's a good example of how to combine science fiction, horror, and comedy. The movie is about a man who goes back in time to his childhood. He needs to get to the planet Jupiter, because the time is in short supply. I won't tell you about the movie. The movie is great, and it is recommended for all ages. It's worth to see it. I can't wait for it's sequel. This is a movie worth to see. It's a good movie. See it!

The Man From Outer Space is a fictional movie about a mysterious man named Peter, who travels through time to a distant planet. The other people on the planet he is on are all strange and have no memories of their lives. As he gets closer to the planet, he starts to feel strange things happening. He begins to question his existence, and to try to remember who he is and what he was. But, this strange energy never leaves him, and he soon realizes that he must protect his identity. The acting is great by Michael Chiklis, Jennifer Connelly and Dennis Quaid. The special effects are good, and the story is interesting. This movie was great for the 80's, and for sci-fi fans, it is one of the best. There is a lot of science in this movie, and I found the movie to be interesting and exciting. This movie is worth watching, and you should see it.
