"Sorry to burst your collective bubbles, but the "real" footage contained herein is in NO WAY real. The ugly truth is simply this: the producers of this program hired a small crew (including one of the assistant editors) who shot all of the Russian footage segements, and the autopsy. It's all fake, shot in The Valley, and I personally know two people who were involved in the charade. Even worse, much of the other footage in this "documentary" was not licensed from its owners, and is thus STOLEN. The worst, absolutely, the worst kind of garbage. Just because this was shown on television doesn't make it real."
Russian Exploitation and Faked UFO Video = Dangerous Conmen
"I watched this and I thought - "Wow, What a great documentary about UFOs". The UFO footage of a crashed saucer did look very real and very convincing. Even if it was all a hoax the documentary interviews with Russian scientists is still very good and is a very valuable lesson for us all. However when I learned the truth this production went from being the real thing, to being a Blair Witch Project with some real elements to being very dangerous filmmaking with some questionable exploitation of real people that is borderline criminal.The filmmakers interviewed REAL Russian scientists but did not tell them that they where making this documentary. Then they re-arranged their interviews and edited them to suite their agenda. The Russian scientists believed that these people where authentic American filmmakers, but these guys where out to cheat, deceive and exploit. They even hired actors to play Russian scientists who did not exist. The books and newspaper clippings in this DVD do not exist either. Then the American filmmakers paid a bunch of local villagers peanuts to dress up as KGB agents for an advertisement they said they where making. That is the KGB UFO footage that headlines this DVD.The Russian scientists in this DVD are all over the web and have condemned this DVD to the last. It was pure exploitation through and through.Keep your bucks in your pockets. Don't support this gutter that is a sham in the fields of science, documentary filmmaking and UFOology."
This alien autopsy is real, and most likely so is the UFO

"The sound is fair, and the DVD transfer is poor, but this shows a film obtained from the Soviets during a short time period when everything in that country was for sale, because of the power vacuum between the CCCP to CIS transition. I wish the four reels of film had been shown in their entirety, however in that film they did show an alien autopsy. What the producers did not mention, nor notice, is the alien hand. It exactly matchs the drawings of an alien hand from the book "The Alagash Abductions", by Bud Hopkins. I almost fudged my shorts when I saw it. That four digit hand was wonderful, and lends credence to the images of a crashed UFO on the other reels. Most UFO literature descriptions of the small craft typically cite a diameter of 18 feet, which looks about right for this craft. You can further see that it is a manufactured object. The Soviets where able to exactly copy our best bomber immediately after WWII, however really advanced technology is another matter. I think we still don't have the tools to build the tools to build the tools to build one of these. In my opinion this is the best pictoral example of a real UFO and real Alien available today. Most of the rest of the program is filler, eye-wash, what the producers had to do to create something to sell. However, the parts which are definitely worth watching can be obtained nowhere else."
Great NATO UFO footage

"This documentary contains some excellent footage of NATO planes tracking unknowns (cigar shaped object/and saucer w/gondola). The sequence showing a crashed saucer in the Russian woods, is quite convincing. Stanton Freidman gives an excellent and impartial, evaluation of the evidence. Well worth your time and money - a good documentary."

"This video is well worth seeing. The Russian Govt. is more open about releasing films of U.F.O's that where taped from their planes now the COLD WAR is long over. The U.S Govt. should follow the example. There is very good film footage of U.F.O's. Simply put:If you do not live in Russia & have not had first hand experience of these events, this video is well worth seeing. Like anything else on this subject , belief or disbelief is up to the individual."
