Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The notion of human-alien miscegenation, and the prospect of what kind of offspring would come from such an unholy union, is nothing new in movieland, but InAlienable gives it a new spin by handling it as a legal drama, pitting government vs. individual in a fight to determine just who said offspring would belong to. Director Robert Dyke's film is loaded with actors who've put in time on sci-fi shows, from Star Trek (several incarnations, including the original), Stargate, Alien Nation, Babylon 5, and Battlestar Galactica. The latter's Richard Hatch stars as Dr. Eric Norris, a scientist who's continuing with his research despite being guilt-ridden over the death of his wife and son in a car crash. When a friend brings him a meteorlike object that he found in the desert and asks Norris to check it out, the doc doesn't give it much thought--until he wakes up pregnant, having been invaded by the alien life form that had been on board the meteor. The humanoid thing that emerges from his abdomen is dismissed as a parasite, but it carries enough of Norris's DNA for him to take a shine to it; indeed, he names it "Benjamin" and insists on referring to it as his son, scary tentacles and all. That's when the sinister guys in dark suits show up, insisting that Benjamin should be handed over to the feds for the good of all, followed by lawyers, courtroom scenes, and so on. Sure, the idea is preposterous, but it could have been a fun ride were it not for the fact that InAlienable is, quite simply, very poorly done, with cheesy special effects and laughable action sequences. As for the cast, Hatch is fine, but much of the rest of the acting is dreadful, especially Courtney Peldon as Norris's love interest and Walter Koenig, Star Trek's Mr. Chekov himself, as his vengeful boss; then again, Brando and Olivier would have had a tough time with this script (also Koenig's work). Cool idea, though. --Sam Graham

Product Description

Still guilt-ridden over the accident that took his family's lives, Eric Norris discovers that his body is host to a parasite from another world. Except, it is more than a parasite: it carries his DNA. Is this his new son or – as the government believes – a threat to mankind?

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT STORY - REMEMBER WHEN MOVIES HAD STORIES? January 31, 2010
Format:DVD
I loved this movie. In today's world, we rate sci-fi movies on how many CGI effects are used, how loud the music is, and fast can we change from scene to scene. Walter Koenig's "InAlienable" is none of the above. It is not fast paced, no loud music booming from 5 speakers, and no spaceship battles. To me, this movie was like reading a good book. It's a great story - in some ways reminded me of "The Outer Limits" tv show. The characters are well developed and believable (Richard Hatch has never been better - an amazing performance, and Mr. Koenig plays "evil" better than anyone else working in movies today - he is chilling in this film). Aside from the sci-fi element, the movie has a message that speaks for today, and even about our Constitutional rights. This is where Mr. Keonig's talents as a writer shines. This is like the movies of Frank Capra - the times and challenges in which Capra lived (the 30's and 40's) disguised in an entertainment - and they have become time machines for us. We can look back at a Capra movie, like Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, and get a real sense of how the country felt and lived at that time. Well, I will say that "InAlienable" does the same thing. It will make you take a second look at our society and our legal system. Don't buy this movie if you want laser guns, aliens attacking the world, people being beamed up, or racing through the galaxy .... but DO buy it if you want a good story that might make you think a little more about our REAL world and the times in which we live.

3.0 out of 5 stars Really not so bad, overall May 10, 2010
By Viva
Format:DVD
This movie is not nearly as bad as some make it out to be. It has a story that is entertaining enough, and some of the actors are pretty decent, especially Marina Sirtis and Erick Avari as competing lawyers, the young blond woman playing the scientist's lover, and Richard Hatch as the man who develops a bond with his alien child. Danielle Koenig and Andrew Koening are also good in brief roles as a comedienne and a crazed research assistant. The production values are not too bad except that the alien creature is rather cheesy. Also, the crowd outside the courtroom is shown too many times, and I think the female lawyer misquotes "Ozymandias" with the wrong context.

the ending is a bit of a mess and rather predictable, but then it's confusing when the blonde woman is pregnant and we can only assume, or hope, that it is a human child in there this time instead of an alien.
Still, it is entertaining and filled with many Sci fi actors that fans will recognize; along with the others mentioned, there is Gary Graham, Patricia Tallman, JG Hertzler, etc.

3.0 out of 5 stars They tried, they really did... April 19, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this movie for one reason. I'm a big Star Trek fan and wanted to see what Walter Koenig had done here. Well, the concept was good. Some of the acting was good. But, it just didn't really work. Its obvious that its a low budget movie and that's fine but sometimes laughable. I was actually into the movie emotionally until they got to the courtroom scenes and then it just lost me. I think they tried to inject some humor into the movie but it just DID NOT work. I love Walter Koenig and Marina Sirtis (Walter did great, Marina not so much) but some of the lines came across pretty lame. Anyway, if you have a couple of hours with nothing else to do then buy and watch this movie. Otherwise, keep on truckin....

5.0 out of 5 stars Not What Everyone Expects September 4, 2014
Format:DVD
It isn't a lot of action or fast-paced thriller that makes you sit on the edge of your seat; it's a realistic view of humanity and the diffferent choices we'd make in certain situations. You can't review this like a typical movie because it's an artistic film, and those are made to make the person watching them take a step back and think. Personally, I liked the movie a lot. So much so that I only watched the first half of the rented DVD before buying it! (I waited until it arrived to finish) Some of the acting is not the best, but the point got across just the same, and I really enjoyed seeing so many people from the Star Trek franchise.

3.0 out of 5 stars low budget film with a good story June 3, 2014
Format:DVD
I actually have a german 3d blu ray of this one. In Germany they take many low budget sci fi films and turn them into 3d films with a computer. So my picture looks better than what you will see on this dvd. But the film has a good story. It doesn't have much money to tell it but the story is fine. Richard Hatch is excellent as the 'farther' of a alien who he gives birth too. The rest of the cast if fine too and the leading lady is very gorgeous. And she can act too. This is not a monster movie though it's like a twilight zone episode , which is a good thing. it's a thoughtful movie and that's a interesting twist for a sci fi film. Of course , you could slag this movie for having a small person with attached tentacles play the 'child' but this isn't a cgi movie. I got past that and enjoyed the film.

3.0 out of 5 stars Inalienable movie March 17, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Good premise for movie but could have used a little more information in the story. It was really thought provoking idea. Would a person that has a lot of tech installed in them so they can fiunction still be human?

4.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent, interesting and fun - Go Checkov! January 21, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I purchased this because I'm a Sci-Fi (Star Trek) fan- in all of it's permutations. (Nice to see "Apollo" from the original Battlestar Gallacta" staring in this movie too).
This was an interesting - and intelligent - variation on human rights. Sort of like the "Alien Nation theme of "Extraterrestrial visitors living on Earth deserving the same rights as we do". The acting is good, budget low....but fun to watch just the same. Better than the typical "Sci Fi Channel" nonsense. Sit back and enjoy the fun.
