Do you believe in cause and effect? Because if you do, this movie will shatter your belief in it. I would describe this movie as Philip K. Dick tripping balls on LSD, peyote and ayahuasca pitching a movie idea to 80s Jim Abrahams to direct while today's David Zucker writes and produces it. I know, it sounds absurd and surreal and makes little sense, but that's how little sense this movie makes in and of itself.

There is a semblance of story in that there is a alien life form and a supposedly governmental intel agency trying to make contact with andor eradicate these life forms depending on whether they are hostile or not. What this movie lacks on the other hand is a total disregard towards plot coherence, character development and everything you learn at Script Writing 101 college classes. Plot points are introduced and discarded, characters acting without motivation or common sense. Nothing is ever explained. This movie is an example of ontological mindfuck ruled by chaos. Everything seems to be pure randomness. Oh there is a method to the madness, but the viewer will not likely get it.

So why 6 out of 10? The movie is still fun to watch in all of its batshit insanity. You'll most likely say "if that alien turns out to be Jesus and his second coming I wouldn't be surprised at all" or something of the sort and your guess would probably just as valid as the background story the alien has. The actors try to do their best with the script they got, but it's so bad and the story so chaotic that at least they seemed to have fun shooting the movie.
