Cool visuals, but how did the aliens bury skyscrapers in cliffs? And why?
Lord Xenu, the dictator of the Galactic Confederacy, brought billions of his people to Earth in a DC-8-like spacecraft, stacked them around volcanoes and killed them using hydrogen bombs. The skyscrapers were submerged in ash from the exploding volcanoes and nuclear firestorms.
The movie looks like it has potential, with an interesting central mystery and setting, cool visuals and action, and the presence of Cruise and Freeman (who generally pick good projects and give good performances).
'First Contact' is the tale of a man who just wants to cash in on his creation so he can get wasted on an island full of naked women, but his fans keep insisting that he's a saintly visionary who has profoundly altered the world. AKA - 'I Don't Want to be a Statue: The Gene Roddenberry Story.'
