Alien Nation

1988

Graham Baker
Director
20th Century Fox Film Corporation
Production Company

Following the death of his partner at the hands of alien newcomers, Det. Sykes chooses a newcomer cop as a replacement.

Happy genre mix of sci-fi and cop buddy flick provides an entertaining waste of 91 minutes of anyone's time. Well thought out details get lost in a cliched drug plot. The three leads give it their all.

Script was rewritten by an uncredited James Cameron.

Has resonance with District 9.
