This film added little to my understanding of UFOs, but it still makes a cool introduction to contemporary UFOlogy - some recent sightings, history, conspiracy theory, abductions, theoretical propulsion, and so on. Not really for the hard-core sceptic, nor the learned Ufologist, this film is great, however, for what it sets out to do - to get more people thinking and talking about UFOs and disclosure.
Dan Aykroyd and ufologist David Sereda chat semi-formally on UFOs while we're shown sightings, related footage, and testimony. It's an interesting mix of hyped production and a frank down-to-earth discussion which seems to work. Some of the info was new to me and worth seeing, such as Hellyer, the Canadian Defense Minister, testifying. Personally I find Aykroyd to be a likable fellow and a great presenter. He is, afterall, a MUFON spokesman, and his beleif is based on his own UFO experiences which he also discusses.
Sereda compares Aykroyd to 'Einstein', 'genius', 'professor' and 'one of the great minds of our time'. I have my doubts, and Aykroyd admits himself that he's not even a scientist, but neverthess he does come across as intelligent, articulate and knowledgeable about Physics and UFO's. Sereda, doing a fair job, throws in some of his own research ideas in too, and why not?
As is typical with this genre, the footage gets a bit repetative, and there could have been more. And I'll never understand the obsession of over-zooming into footage until you see only a useless blured blob.
Mostly a joy to watch, this film also got a few unbelieving friends thinking and talking about UFOs. Aykroyd and Sereda should be proud of this little UFO production. Well done Dan and Dave!
