Critic Reviews of "Alien Nation"Steve Newton Georgia StraightFebruary 18, 2014
With the sci-fi and horror aspects toned down, Alien Nation becomes little more than a cop show with a twist-and one that will satisfy only the most gullible of action fans.Pablo Villaça Cinema em CenaDecember 31, 2008
Uma idéia potencialmente instigante que acaba sendo desperdiçada por um roteiro tomado pelos clichês.Steve Crum Dispatch-Tribune NewspapersAugust 10, 2006
Fascinating and somewhat timely themed sci-fi flick, a minor classic.Daniel Eagan Film Journal InternationalNovember 28, 2005
Smart sci-fi premise should have made a better movieChuck O'Leary Fantastica DailyOctober 10, 2005
Caan is good, but this is just a very standard buddy cop movie disguised as a sci-fi thriller. Plays better on TV, though.Clint Morris MovieholeApril 25, 2005
Patinkin in one of his best, most memorable performancesLuke Y. Thompson New TimesApril 08, 2005
Fun gimmick cop movie with aliensFrederic and Mary Ann Brussat Spirituality and PracticeAugust 27, 2004
It begins focusing on the cross-cultural and human dimensions of the tale but it turns into just another police flick replete with crashing cars and endless shootouts.Brian Mckay eFilmCritic.comMarch 21, 2003
A shallow dissertation on race relations made watchable by the sci-fi/Police thriller theme. Caan and Patankin have good chemistry, and there are some amusing culture clashes.Bob Bloom Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)October 07, 2002
OK s-f that failed to capitalize on an interesting premise.Scott Weinberg eFilmCritic.comJuly 25, 2002
It's 70% cop schpiel and 30% science-fiction fun. Switch those percentages and we'd be calling it a classic.John J. Puccio Movie MetropolisMay 31, 2001
...the premise goes nowhere. Instead, it begins and ends as an ordinary police mystery, complete with gun fights, chase scenes, and things blowing up in the night.
