Bad attempt to make a movie out of a tv series

"When I ordered this I thought I was getting the pilot plus one or two other episodes from the TV series tracker, what I got was a poorly edited attempt to make a movie from the bare bones of three episodes (the pilot and two episodes from near the end of the series). In order to fit these three episodes into 143 minute running time they cut the episodes to the bare minimum, yet for some reason left in five minutes of flash backs that made perfect sense for tv episodes that are shown weeks apart but much less sense when we had seen scenes less than half an hour before. What really made me mad is the fact that they didn't include the last episode in the mix, so all you have is a poorly edited movie without a true ending. You would be better off recording the episodes off of the Sci-Fi channel while waiting for them to release the full season."
Entertaining but could have been better.

"Over all I liked it. The flashbacks could have been eliminated, we had just seen those scenes. Also, scenes from another episode could have been added if there were no flashbacks. The episode when Zin is entombed under the Watchfire would have been my choice. It flows with the finding of the key. This would have easily raised my rating to 4 stars."

"With such immortal lines as "Take my life force please", this is without question one of the worst "fims" ever made. The acting is so terrible you initially think..."Oh No, this is one of those 1:00 a.m. softcore cable porn filcks." Which is a perfect segway to explain the only legitimate reason to see this film, homo-erotic eye candy. Adrian Paul who for some unknown reason is found wandering the road looking like an underwear designer's wet dream, spends half of the movie half naked. Tied up on an "exam" table bound at the wrists and ankles, and wearing nothing but his skin-tight Calvins, our hero is "ripe for the taking", and wouldn't last a minute in the Castro. Surrounding him are guys in military uniforms, ready to "turn up the heat." At any second you expect that grinding music to start and the evil military men "have their way" with our hapless and helpless alien. If eye candy is the objective, then it's worth the cheap price. If the viewer is looking for thought provoking science fiction, look somewhere else. And in the meantime, who knows there may be a sequel entitled "Alien in the bunkhouse", but until then this will have to do."

"One could have a cheesy sci-fi film fest with this movie,"DNA","The Wraith","Deep Impact"&"Shark Attack." This movie definitely qualifies...
In the beginning,Adrian Paul comes to earth,and being pure energy (like so many Star Trek creatures),sees the picture of an underwear model&takes on his form.He explains to a hapless earthling woman that he's out to get cosmic prison escapees.So,it's "Prison Break",except there are millions of rogue aliens roaming the universe.Great.He demonstrates how he traps their life force&zaps them back to the Galactic Big House.
Okay,it lacks plot,it lacks great special effects---what's wrong with that?"
