THE PLOT:

Tom Hollander's niece has some kind of attack and the truth of her origin comes out when she wipes out the medical team assigned to her case. He takes her to Mexico because she is an alien human hybrid and something has gone wrong and only one man can save her. The man who created her, one of the scientists who worked on the project who knows sells them like sex toys.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

The first three were pretty good, very good in fact. But this one, it's just good. Several questions come to mind for this one. The most obvious, where did this guy get alien DNA? When the Government guarded it more then Fort Knox's gold. Helena Mattsson is gorgeous, the hottest alien babe of all and considering all the alien babes are hot that is saying something. But the creature effects were cheaper in this one which kind of bugged me. So, 6 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree with Zedd on this one, the story works for the most part. But like the last movie there are some character issues that need to be dealt with. The cast does a great job and I agree about Helena Mattsson but let's not forget Cynthia Francesconi as the other alien babe, she is hot and should do more movies if you ask me. 6 STARS as well.

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ STORY (Works for the most part.)
+ ACTING (The cast does a great job.)
+ HOT BABES (Both Helena Mattsson and Cynthia Francesconi are hot. H-O-T, hot!)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- CREATURE EFFECTS (For the first time I was kind of disappointed with the creature effects.)
- BIG QUESTION (HOW?)
- CHARACTER ISSUES (There were some character issues.)

...AND FINALLY...

- FAN BASED (If you aren't big on the first three movies, I somehow doubt you'll like this one either.)
