Alien Nation

Alien Nation Brief Information

Alien Nation is a 1988 American science fiction film directed by Graham Baker, produced by Gale Anne Hurd and Richard Kobritz, and written by Rockne S. O'Bannon. It stars James Caan, Mandy Patinkin and Terence Stamp.

Alien Nation depicts the integration of Newcomers, an alien race settling in Los Angeles, much to the dismay of the local population. The film's plot is a science fiction variation on the buddy cop genre; it centers on the partnership between veteran L.A. police detective Matthew Sykes (Caan) and George Francisco (Patinkin), the first Newcomer detective. Sykes and Francisco explore the criminal underworld of the Newcomers as they attempt to solve the murder of Sykes' previous partner. Alien Nation introduces sociological ideas, such as the effects of illegal immigration, discrimination and racism as the Newcomers try to interact and fit in with human society. The Newcomers have enlarged spotty craniums, two hearts, can consume only raw food and are sensitive to seawater which acts like an acid on their skin. Over the course of the film, their slavery past is alluded to as they are genetically modified for slave labor.
