Set in the future, the story puts Earth defending itself from hostile aliens. Dr. Spenser Olham (Gary Sinise), a prominent scientist and weapons developer and his wife Maya (Madeline Stowe) return from a weekend camping. But Spenser is arrested by Major Hathaway (Vincent D’Onifrio) and told that he is a humanoid robot designed by the alien enemy. Spenser escapes, but can he prove the Major wrong before recapture and death? Although filled with talented actors, the film lacks the necessary involvement with characters.
Similar to THE FUGITIVE, the story takes a few semi-surprising twists. Although graphic injuries are downplayed, one scene shows the gruesome removal of a humanoid heart. Despite the relative lack of objectionable material, the dialogue includes several strong profanities and a few obscenities which make it unacceptable.
