a humane look at aliens
not just your typical sci-fi film. It's about race relations and how we view race today. The aliens are treated like Native Americans put into reservations and are about to be moved to another relocation camp. It also has hints of the way we treat Hispanics, just wanting them to "go home." It's a thinking man's science fiction film, not just one for fans, but one the public can enjoy. The special effects are first rate, as you would come to exspect from Peter Jackson. As I've said before, I'm not a big sci-fi fan, but this is definately a must see.
