THE PLOT:

A meteor crashes to Earth in a remote area of Arizona. Two Scientists Dr. Ira Kane and Prof. Harry Phineas Block go to check it out and unleashes a strange ooze while taking a sample of the rock from space.

Now the ooze starts to evolve into it's own eccho system, creating alien forms of life within the deep cavern the meteor landed in. But the life is evolving quickly and there may not be enough room on this planet for all of us.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

Dan Aykroyd does a great job as the Creator of this new universe. The evolution fighters or Alienators as they soon will be known as is a great flickin' flick. The human cast does a great job, the aliens are cool. David Duchovny is great as Ira Crane. As good as the first Ghostbusters, now I do have one complaint, the ****less General. He could have been better. But just like Ghostbuster I guess they're had to be one butthead to deal with. The whole premise works and I think they did their homework and created a real life possibility when it comes to aliens. It was funny, exciting, scary at points. Everything you expect in a sci-fi comedy in equal amounts. What I would love to see is the GHOSTBUSTERS meet the ALIENATORS. That would be a cool cross-over. Dan Aykroyd, I hope you're reading this. CROSSOVER these two, NOW! 9 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

Evolution is a pretty good movie and I do enjoy the humor and the effects. But I can't stand know it all Politicians and Soldiers that won't listen to someone just because they made one mistake in their past. Just because someone was wrong once doesn't mean that they are always wrong. I mean we are all only human. 7 STARS.

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ CREATURE DESIGNS (Some of the coolest creature designs in recent history.)
+ CGI (The CGI was flawless.)
+ STORY (The story does a great job.)
+ DAVID DUCHOVNY (David Duchovny steals the show as Ira Crane.)
+ CAST (The whole cast does a great job.)
+ HUMOR (Incredible humor.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- GENRAL BUTTHEAD (I really didn't like the general who think he knows everything.)
- MISTAKES (Just because Ira made a mistake once doesn't make him always wrong.)

...AND FINALLY...

- FAN BASED (If you aren't into alien movies, then this isn't the movie for you.)
