Alien Nation (1988) - James Caan DVD
Alien Nation (1988)
Tough guy James Caan (The Godfather) and Emmy winner Mandy Patinkin (TV's Chicago Hope) star in this "wonderfully entertaining (film) that lends itself to repeat viewings that never fail to please. It's a winner!" (Efilmcritic.com)
When humanoid extraterrestrials, seeking refuge on Earth, settle in sprawling L.A. they meet with discrimination at every turn. And when a rogue "Newcomer" murders the partner of Detective Matthew Sykes (Caan), Skyes must come to grips with his own biases and solve the crime with a new partner....another Newcomer (Patinkin). Suspenseful, entertaining and filled with surprises. Alien Nation arrives with "solid performances" (Variety), "superb f/x" (Efilmcritic.com) and "a new twist on a familiar story" (Gene Siskel, Siskel & Ebert At The Movies)!
