Alien Nation

Tonight we watched “Alien Nation”, a 1988 cop/buddy/action film starring James Caan, Mandy Patinkin, and Terence Stamp. Neither Kate nor I had seen it before, although I was mildly aware of a television series in the late 80s, which was apparently a lighter, more comedic, spin-off.

I enjoyed the film; it exhibited the usual clichés of the genre, but the script and performances pulled it beyond its roots. Oh, and there was a bit of a metaphor going on, but it didn’t feel leaden or over played.

And Brian Thompson turned up in a small but memorable part.
