Cast / crew
After some history with a Las Vegas crime boss, taxi driver Jack Bruno thinks he’s got a couple of rich kids in big trouble when his cab is attacked by three black SUVs. What he doesn’t realise yet is that the SUV’s contained government agents and his two children are illegal aliens. The from-outer-space kind.
Noisily but only vaguely thrilling sci-fi action movie with a predictable eco-message and a predictable, well, just about everything. Even the orange or orange and blue posters are predictable. The only unusual element is to see a major car crash that has a tangible effect on the occupants (they’re winded and suffering from shock). It’s so unusual that it seems bizarre when the occupants don’t immediately evacuate what’s left of the vehicle all-guns blazing. While it seems highly negative to say that the movie is almost instantly forgettable and features nothing of lasting interest, it is professionally and pacily directed, effectively written and acted and is a reasonably thrilling, tightly-focused production.
This movie contains violence.
