I purposely avoided reading any reviews leading up to this movie as I wanted to go into the theater without any preconceived notions. I'm glad I did, because the overwhelming response to this movie is average at best. I disagree, I found it to be creative and compelling.
The director does a very good job getting the audience to "believe" this story is factual. The archival footage is realistic and chilling and I found the story to be as believable as one can find an alien abduction film.
I think this was an entertaining move and I recommend it to anyone that enjoys SciFi with the occassional spine tingling moments.

Regardless of belief of the existence of any extraterrestrial life, the varied forms of contact, or the varied portrayals of events in films, this movie slams home the emotional repercussions that could potentially stem from abductions by life forms from beyond Earth.
I went to the midnight showing and left absolutely shaken, butterflies in my stomach and thoroughly entertained. Milla Jovovich was outstanding as Dr. Abigail Tyler, as was her supporting cast. As a "documentary", the storyline leaves one questioning their belief in the extraterrestrial and their contact with us. As a thriller, the movie has many points where you want to jump straight out of your seat & head for the doors.
I loved "The Fourth Kind", it scared the pants off of me. I just might go see it again. As long as one goes with either an open mind, or without prejudgmental expectations, prepare yourself to be blown away.

Do you believe video of Alien abductions would remain secret for nine years? Do you believe the Aliens were here on earth 4000 "BC"? Last question - Do you believe one of the executive producers is a Scientologist? - that one's true.
This was an entertaining movie that sprinkled truth into a Hollywood story about Aliens. Virtually none of the facts can be substantiated, and the very town folk don't buy the abduction story either. It's a bit slow at times, except for the totally gullible, but it was an interesting mix of "actual video" and their drama.
Flip a coin on this one!

I saw the screening of this movie last night. I am not a fan of movies about aliens or UFO's, so I was almost sure I wasn't going to like this film. Boy was I wrong! This movie actually startled me off of my seat a few times and made me want to scream in terror! I have seen dozens upon dozens of horror movies always looking for a scare, but walk away from them unphased. I very rarely get scared by a movie, and this is the first time that a movie has made me jump and want to scream. This movie is scarier than any horror movie I have ever seen! This is the best scary movie I have seen since The Texas Chainsaw Massacre with Jessica Biel. This film was brilliantly thought out and is unlike any movie out there. The way the cameras roll quickly over the outdoor terrain and the zoom they get on the actor's faces is awesome! Milla Jovovich is extraordinary in this film!! The archive footage and audio of the actual case studies plays on the unkown. You have to see this movie for yourself!!

After attending over 20 movies this year, this one was by far the best one yet. Based on real events, this movie really delivers. If you are a skeptic to begin with, you will probably walk away from the movie just thinking the lady is crazy. If you believe, this movie will further solidify your beliefs. This movie actually made the audience think and pay attention the whole time. You don't want to go to the bathroom or get a popcorn refill because you might miss something.....and trust me, it's good. The ending was sadr but I'm going to do lots of research now into the numerous disappearances and the Sumerian language. I find it fascinating that the FBI has been to Nome, AK so many times to investigate. What exactly is being investigated and why is it being covered up? I can't wait until this movie comes out on DVD!
