A Lesson In Friendship.

  • Apr 24, 2002
Dennis Quaid and Louis Gossett, Jr. star in this movie about two fighter pilots from two different races who are at war who crash on the same remote deserted planet and are forced to work together to survive. In the process, they grow from enemies; to co-workers; to friends; and finally to blood brothers. Louis Gossett, Jr. plays the alien and his performance is superb. Not many actors can pull off such a realistic portrayal under so much cosmetics and synthetics. Dennis Quaid is always a delight to watch and this movie is no exception. Some of the effects are rather tame, but this is not an effects driven movie. This is a movie driven by the story and it's a great and moving story to watch unfold. The best thing I can say about the film is that my father hates science fiction movies, but he saw this on cable, loved it, and recommended it to me.
