First thing I noticed was that the dialogue was pretty good. The cast is pretty solid : Bruce Davison, Eric Stoltz Catherine Bell, Lou Diamond Phillips and Sam Neil.
Did not take long to become uncomfortable in the over all blandness of presentation : little in the way of atmosphere or edginess, also the characters lacked depth.
As time passed the screen play presented several; changes in the realities of the characters and I wondered where this would lead.
Eventually the explanation was quasi - scientic, rather than fantasy or horror which failed to satisfy me or undo the considerable dissatisfaction that had built up in me during the 4 plus hours of screen time. The saved in the nick of time conclusion made matters worse.
Some good things are therebut they are offset by shortcomings in the script. 6/10 half and halfs
