Editorial Reviews

A shocking story of government cover-up in space! What would happen is a UFO was to crash-land on Earth? What the government let us know? Or would they fear nationwide panic and keep it under cover? This intense thriller opens as two astronauts (Gary Collins and James Hampton) are deploying a satellite from a space shuttle when it collides with an unidentified object. The object makes a crippled but safe landing in the remote southwestern desert where it is quickly carted off by government agencies to a secret Air Force base. Meanwhile, the two astronauts are back on earth and are anxious to know what happened, but no one is talking. When they begin to investigate they learn that the government will stop at nothing to keep them from discovering the truth! The stellar cast includes Darren McGavin (A Christmas Story), Robert Vaughn (The Man From U.N.C.L.E.) and Pamela Bellwood (Dynasty). Stylishly directed by James L. Conway (The Boogens) who also co-wrote the story.

The Utah-based Schick Sunn Pictures corporation, known for churning out highly speculative documentaries, turns to science fiction for this interesting conspiracy sci-fi drama. The question: What would the U.S. government do if it suddenly had an alien spacecraft in its possession?
Two shuttle astronauts (Gary Collins, James Hampton) are in the process of launching a military satellite from the shuttle, when they encounter a UFO in orbit. When the satellite is launched, it hits the UFO with explosive results, killing a third man who was inside the shuttle's cargo bay watching the satellite's progress. The UFO, however, makes a controlled landing in the Arizona desert.
When they get back on the ground, Collins and Hampton soon find themselves the target of charges that the incident in orbit was their fault, and are forced to clear their names by finding the right evidence, all the while being tracked by government agents. Meanwhile, a team of scientists, led by Darren McGavin, are ensconsed at Hangar 18, located on the grounds of an Air Force base in Texas, trying to learn everything possible about the UFO and its occupants...whose appearances bear an all-too-uncanny resemblance to humans.
Thought I dock this film one star because its special effects aren't exactly up to snuff (a lowered budget is the reason), HANGAR 18 is otherwise a very good film. In basic terms, it combines a Watergate-style political scenario with elements from Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, and Steven Spielberg's CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND. This is not to say that HANGAR 18 is a masterpiece like those two films are. But the combination of such elements manages to work in a fairly narrow framework.

Astronauts, including Gary Collins, sight a UFO from the shuttle. NASA chief Darren McGavin tracks it on radar, but White House officials (Robert Vaughn & Joseph Campanella) want to keep it covered up until the election, because the president had previously ridiculed his opponent for reporting a UFO. McGavin is sent to investigate, but Collins and the other astronaut are kept in the dark - but they investigate unofficially. It turns into an action pic as the government tries to stop them, but meanwhile McGavin and his team have found dead aliens on the ship, and learn of their previous visits to Earth. Considering how old this is it's a pretty good effort and precursor to Roswell, The X-Files, etc.

This poor quality transfer to DVD looks as though it was converted from an old, full-screen VHS of the film. The chapter selection and menu screen have a home-job appearance. Stranger still, the picture on the box (of a green bug-eyed alien emerging from a door, bears no actual connection to the film.) In fact, except for the fact that it was sold on Amazon, you would think that this is a fly-by-night bootleg. Did anyone at Legacy Enterntainment (the DVD producer) actually care about the DVD they were releasing?

I remember when this classic movie came out in 1980. I really enjoyed seeing the previews and what the film was all about. Surprisingly, my parents took me to see the film, and all of us really enjoyed this science fiction/conspiracy thriller classic. All of us even jumped when that alien environment suit popped out of the UFO's closet by accident. Nevertheless, the movie was in a way like an earlier version of The X-Files. Only just as better and more exciting than the series that would come some 13 years later.
Hanger 18 tells the story of how a satellite, launched by a NASA space shuttle/orbiter, collides with an Unidentified Flying Object, causing the death of an American astronaut in the process. When the UFO crashes on Earth, the U.S. Air Force and NASA recover it, and take it to a manned lunar receiving station in Texas. There, they uncover some hidden secrets that soon take the scientists by surprise. And makes the Government nervous. At the same time, two of the shuttle astronauts who witnessed the incident in space, are "blamed" for the other astronaut's death, and try to clear up the situation, by hunting for the UFO. The government tries to prevent the two from locating the UFO, but to little or no avail. That situation leads to something even more drastic made by the CIA and The Department Of Defense.
Like the classic film Capricorn One, Hanger 18 does a remarkable job of playing on the government conspiracy angle, and at the same time, deals with the ancient astronaut theory. The subplot involving the two astronauts trying to clear their names is also good, as is the storyline about the scientists trying to unlock whatever secrets are in the flying saucer.
And it also had a wonderful cats of veterans.

Well after almost 30 years, finally hangar 18 is on bluray and you can watch it on your 16:9 TV without stretching it. Previous VHS,DVD releases and the netflix and amazon prime versions are in 4:3 format.
The bluray release don't have any extras, the main menu has 2 options: play the movie and the chapters. Audio quality is acceptable for a mono. The video quality is far away better than previous releases (of course) but also a little bit of high contrast. Perhaps to enhance the deterioration of the old original film itself.
There are video noise in several scenes, at the beginning with the space shuttle shots where the space sometime turns to dark blue.
Overall the bluray video quality now can reveal the special effects of this 80's film, specially space shuttle scenes, and the end with the plane crashing the hangar.
Other revelations about quality is you can read almost all the space shuttle panel, and inside the UFO too, specially the panel buttons. The images on the big screen inside the UFO are more vivid, the symbols and the graphics, I notice more pink variation colors than instead of the red on previous releases.
The bluray doesn't have subtitles or any other audio format.
