I came across this new 2011 film called Area 51. The movie is apparently about a "found footage" that was taken at Area 51, that supposedly houses a
UFO. Then 3 students break in or something anyway. So I was just wondering if anyone had seen or heard about it? I haven't watched it yet, but plan
on doing so tonight.
Here's a link to its imdb page:
I was going to post the link to the site where you can watch the film, but decided not to incase it violates the forums rules.
Your description and the description at IMDB are two different things.
Terror strikes when reporters visit a secret base that houses extraterrestrials.
I've seen this movie. It's not that good, in fact it's pretty crappy.
SPOILER DO NOT READ FURTHER IF YOU INTEND TO WATCH THIS MOVIE..
What happens is the US government decides to let two reporters have a guided tour of Area 51.
They are taken on a tour of the first two or three levels only, by the bases commander and a soldier carrying an assault rifle.
One reporter gets in the commanders face to reveal secrets about aliens, the other thinks he can lull him into a false sense of security and get him
to talk on his own about what's really going at the base.
It's not long into the tour that an incident occurs. An alien has broken out, and released some other dangerous aliens.
The alien that breaks out literally has no face and reminds you of one of the Fantastic 4 characters(The guy that looks like a human rock or
This particular alien, if he touches you, can morph into you and imitate you, but he can only say what he has heard you say.
The other aliens that get out, are the typical ugly looking monsters with tails that they use to penetrate your abdomen type stuff.
The commander radios his second in charge top side, and he gets together some soldiers to go down below.
He orders another soldier to stay top side with some others, who is left in charge, and is ordered to kill anything that comes up the elevator that
None of these soldiers, except the 2nd in charge who goes down, has any idea of what's really been going on at the base, or that there are more then
3 levels. So they are shocked to hear of anything that isn't human.
Soon enough the soldiers who went down start getting picked off by the aliens.
At some point the soldier with the gun on the guided tour is killed and the imitating alien takes his form. You don't see it happen though but later
you realise when it does happen. It also helps that this soldier doesn't speak much.
Later on he attacks the commander, and a friendly alien that has been living at the base and been helping the USAF, known as J Rod, uses some
"powers" to subdue this alien.
Later on J Rod discovers that we have been experimenting on aliens and he is pissed and nearly kills the commander.
The soldiers left top side end up killing two of the tailed aliens, but only after they've suffered a few losses them selves.
J Rod spares the commanders life because a reporter convinces him he is sorry, and that he is going to go public with them about what's really been
going on at Area 51.
At the end there is a live news broadcast that crosses over to Area 51(the same way the movie started btw), and J Rod walks into the picture.
It's a pretty crap movie. If you are bored and have nothing better to do and are really scraping the barrel, then give it a go. It'll help pass the
