Well I attended the May The 4th screening expecting to see just another alien encounter film. Don't get me wrong I like alien films. The story started interestingly enough but a third of a way through I realised that I was watching something more than just another alien encounter film. Whoever wrote the story has a very deep story to tell.
Though it takes a while to get into the flow of this film I found myself totally engrossed in a world of the conspiracies, theories and thought provoking questions that most of us are too afraid to ask or would never have even imagined. By the end of the story I was left hanging on the edge of my seat because of the clever and yet frustrating cliff-hanger! But after the end credits roll I saw that Abduct 2 is coming soon so that eased my mind that is now brimming with so many questions and the need to understand more.
There simply isn't any way that all the answers and conclusions can be achieved in just one hour and fifty minutes but I would commend Abduct team and the director for this impressive effort.
though let down at times by some of the lesser cast. William Davis and Mark are wonderful and I got surprise when I saw the cool Resident Evil chick turn up as a villain. The Man in Black was not such a scary man, more of a creepy clown. A cult film in the making? Maybe and this is much more than a film, I feel it was a mind expanding experience just like the line in the film implies "This show is for mind expanders and truth seekers". A great line. The film is full of nice one-liners, and fan boy homages to much loved sci-fi films that all film buffs can appreciate.
I'm telling my friends about it because it's so rare to be affected like this by films these days, just doesn't happen too often anymore. But Abduct is that kind of film that makes you think even if you don't try to.
