Shoot this movie to the stars

"Absolutely the worst sci-fi movie ever made. The filming is much to close up and more suited to x-rated movies. Script, acting and directing aren't much better and the special effects (or the lack of it) are very low-budget. Don't buy or even rent this. See "Communion", "Roswell", "Fire in the Sky" or "Intruders" for some serious UFO stuff."
Go rent it!

"I found this "gem" to be highly entertaining. Sure, it is not the best movie, but if you are a Shatner fan you've got to see it. The gospel singer is especially good, though it was a shame that most of her scenes were cut."
Far better than to be expected

"Mr. Shatner produces, directs and stars in this b-grade sci fi story that frankly is better than one might expect. Yes, b-grade, but Shatner brings his sense of fun and adventure to this 'area 51' alien story. Is he a good guy or a bad guy or simply a guy with his own agenda? You have to watch it, but here's my opinion....
I was told by some that this film was not very good. I beg to differ. If judged as a b-grade sci fi it was more than good. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Not since Trek has Shatner done sci fi in such a gut-level fun way. And yes, I saw the pretrek Incubus when it was released, and Groom Lake is far better a watch in my opinion, not to mention it's in English.
Groom Lake is a Saturday afternoon in an archair with popcorn and soda."
