The Arrival

This alternately boring and mind-numbing sci-Fi flick was virtually wiped out at the box office by Independence Day. And rightfully so! Charlie Sheen plays a paranoid scientist, who uncovers a plot which seems to reveal that aliens have taken over high positions in the world. He sets out to stop them, by proving that they actually exist. At the same time, he's boring the hell out of most of the audience and putting them to sleep in the bargain.

The main reason I believe this is so unsuccessful, is that so many scenes in here are far too long and far too drawn out for the inevitable conclusion. Of the performers, Ron Silver is the only member of the cast who gives his all as the main villain. I think we should send this home to E.T. Or perhaps to the dead zone!

My Rating = Two Stars
