Many people have the wrong impression of this movie. Most group it in
within the "cop/buddy" genre and cheesy sci-fi. But "Alien Nation" is
much more than that. In fact, it was way ahead of it's time.
I saw this movie in a dimly-lit, run-down Detroit-area theater at the
age 14, an afternoon in the fall of 1988. I recall how the "atmosphere"
of the movie matched that of the run-down theater I was sitting in. At
14, and with the title of "Alien Nation", a young kid like myself
wanted to see weird alien creatures and lots of action. At the time, I
was disappointed. This movie is about story, not action or weird
aliens. Although I didn't really understand nor enjoy the movie at the
time, it always stuck with me for some reason. So, nearly 18 years
after seeing it on the silver screen, I re-watched it at home and was
amazed by the depth of the story and the grittiness of the background.
It was little wonder why I didn't like it at 14, but loved it at 32.
This story is really about race and immigration, with the hated race
being alien immigrants. It shows how hatred and ignorance over race can
transform one's personality, like the lead character played by James
Alien Nation asks questions about ourselves as humans. How would we
react if aliens landed on Earth and announced they were escaping a
brutal planet full of slavery and have immigrated to Earth? Would we
accept them as our own, or would we force them to become outcasts?
Would we allow an "Affirmative Action" scenario in regards to Aliens
and Alien rights? Would we offer them high-paying jobs and/or top-notch
education, depriving humans of those same jobs and quality education in
exchange? To me, Alien Nation is one of the more possible (and perhaps
likely) scenarios. Aliens delegated to run-down areas of big cities.
Token jobs occasionally handed out because it's forced by the
Government to do so. And a general disgust towards Aliens amongst the
human population. In that regard, this movie was way ahead of the
Great movie. 9 out of 10 stars. Recommended for those over 25, perhaps
those with a higher intellect than most. Not recommended for someone
looking for a "Men In Black" type of Alien movie. Not your typical
Hollywood blockbuster filled with Aliens, that's for sure.
