Watch Alien Lockdown (TV Movie 2004) - Alternative Versions.
The film begins with narration telling us about a meteor that crashed
on Earth thousands of years ago. People in the area found a large
emerald-like gem that turned out to have "special powers". Of course it
changed hands over the years and yadda yadda yadda, finally ending up
buried and only rumored to exist in legend. We cut to the present, and
a team of archaeologists unearth a fabled crate/trunk/arc that turns
out to contain the gem. Then, quicker than we can wink, we've changed
plots and we're in a secret government mountain lair where scientists
are working on a "super-soldier" that is a genetic manipulation of 100
different species, incorporating the traits of each that are most
appropriate to killing things and surviving while being attacked. Of
course, this beastie gets loose, and the bulk of Alien Lockdown
concerns a Special Forces military group that infiltrates the secret
government facility and attempts to take care of business. Eventually
the plots are tied together more firmly, but it takes awhile.
Alien Lockdown is wildly uneven. Some aspects are excellent and other
aspects are pretty miserable. At times it becomes unintentionally
funny. But overall, this is an enjoyable little low-budget
sci-fi/horror/action flick, primarily recommended for hardcore fans of
that genre combination who try to see everything made.
For me, the most consistently positive aspect of the film was the
lighting and cinematography. Through a combination of unusual lighting
and film processing schemes, director Tim Cox achieves a very
refreshing and aesthetically pleasing variety of colors and textures.
Cox, by the way, was also responsible for another Sci-Fi Channel film
that I enjoyed even more, Larva (2005), which also had interesting
lighting and cinematography. Some scenes in Alien Lockdown have a
golden yellow/brown/orange glow. Others emphasize different colors.
Many lean towards monochromaticism. By the end of the climax, Cox has
cinematographer John S. Bartley almost shooting in black & white, with
just a slight tint. Colors are very important to the film--there is
some important dialogue at one point about red and green. A more
studied look at the film from a color symbolism perspective might prove
The cinematography is good for other reasons, too. For example, there
is some very interesting hand-held work that is effectively employed to
amp up the tension of a scene where two characters are trapped in a
cage. And there are some unusual subtle touches, such as a pinpoint of
light from a laser scope that stays on a character during a closely
framed talking heads dialogue scene.
At the beginning of the film, I thought I was in for quite a treat. The
film starts with a beautiful orange sky as we pan over dark mountains.
Even though we next hear some slightly convoluted dialogue, which is
usually a bad sign, the visuals remain attractive enough to override
any mounting disappointment. The next scene is a very unique sequence
of "warring Romans" silhouetted against a red background, then we move
to the present (well, or questionably the future, due to later clues)
and an Indiana Jones-ish adventure flavor. I was completely in the palm
of Tim Cox' hand at this point; I was fully geared up for a relatively
obscure 10 out of 10.
Unfortunately, things take a turn south not long afterward as we
encounter what turns out to be the core of the plot--the super-soldier
government stuff I mentioned above. Actually, this section isn't too
bad until the Special Forces "commandos" arrive on the scene. There are
a couple problems with this middle section of the film, the main one
being that Cox and his army of writers do not let us get to know the
characters except for the extremely attractive leader, Talon (Michelle
With such a collection of writers, you'd think there would be more of a
plot to the middle of the film. But instead, we're treated to a series
of random Aliens (1986)/Starship Troopers 2 (2004)-like scenes. There
is a lot of searching through similar-looking corridors and rooms.
There are a lot of weapons and "macho code talk". It had all the
excitement of 30 minutes of padding.
To make this section slightly worse, the dialogue is riddled with
clichés and ridiculous non-sequiturs. Take for example this
"intellectual" exchange between Talon and token "evil genius" Dr.
Woodman (John Savage, looking an awful lot like Brad Dourif to me):
Woodman: "This is a morality tale involving all of humanity. And you
will be living out the first chapter."
Talon: "You better start making sense real fast. Stop with all this
Woodman: "After you've studied your humanities, and history, and
mathematics at he levels I have, there is no other explanation. This is
light against darkness, right against wrong, good against evil, only
now, we are not dictating the rules!"
But things improve quite a bit again by the time we get to the climax,
even though the monster is a not-very-veiled amalgamation of Alien and
Predator--we even get a moment out of Alien 3 (1992) with a "near kiss"
between the beastie and our heroine. There is good gore throughout the
film, if you're into that, and the plot gets better as we learn of a
couple double crosses that make the rest of the film more interesting
