As a child, Ali Neuman narrowly escaped being murdered by Inkhata, a militant political party at war with Nelson Mandela';s African National Congress. Only he and his mother survived the carnage of those years. But as with many survivors, the psychological scars remain. Today, Ali is chief of the homicide branch of the South African police in Cape Town. He and his staff Brian Epkeen investigate the brutal murder of a young white woman, apparently provoked by the availability of a new illegal drug and somehow connected to the disappearance of black street children. .

(br) wrote: The studio's payment to Christopher Reeve for agreeing to make SUPERMAN IV for them, and a breakthrough role for Morgan Freeman, this offbeat little drama has aged well, partly because of its prescient theme of media manipulation, and partly because the ending (which I can understand some people hating and writing off as a too-convenient Hollywood ending) is actually incredibly cynical when you stop and think about it. Christopher Reeve plays a young, married, ambitious magazine reporter who, desperate to please his boss, invents an interview with a pimp for a story about life on the street. At the same time, his life intersects with Morgan Freeman's character, a pimp named Fast Black who's under investigation for a murder charge. The D.A suspects that Reeve's fictional pimp, 'tyrone' is the same person as Fast Black, and wants access to his notes and interview tapes as evidence, which of course don't exist, and things grow more complicated from there, as Reeve's character struggles to extricate himself from his lie and protect his career while getting pulled deeper into Fast Black's world. Reeve is effective in a very non-superheroic role, and Kathy Baker is good in a supporting role, but Freeman really does steal the show here, taking what could have been a stock heavy and making him electric-by turns charming and menacing, but always seemingly the smartest man in the room. His situation is just as desperate as Reeve's, and while the third act does seem a bit overly melodramatic at first, there are some interesting reflections on race, class and how much the truth matters that come out of the final scenes.

(it) wrote: Great movie. Alien Nation isn't completely original, as it combines minimal sci-fi with buddy-cop murder mystery, but it does have interesting parallels to the real world with its integration and discrimination with the aliens, sort of like an allegory to the way African-Americans were treated in the 60s and 70s. The film itself is entertaining, funny, some good thrills, and great performances from its cast, especially Caan and Patinkin.
