Fire in the Sky | 1993 | PG-13 | - 2.5.2

D.B. Sweeney and Robert Patrick star in this film about alien abduction based on the account of Travis Walton, a man who claims he was abducted by aliens in 1975.

SEX/NUDITY 2 - No sex scenes; just some kissing between engaged and married couples. The main character is stripped when being examined by aliens, but we only see his clothes being torn off. Later, however, after being dropped off by the aliens, he is found nude (we mostly see him in the fetal position).

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - A couple of fist fights, no blood is drawn. One character threatens another with a buzz saw. Some scenes in which the aliens are examining the lead character are violent and disturbing: he is chased, captured, stripped and then subjected to a variety of experiments with needles and clamps (he actually takes a needle in the eye -- a hard scene to watch).

LANGUAGE 2 - Some mild swearing.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - This realistic portrayal of abduction by aliens may be very disturbing for small children, and it's bound to bring up the question of our existence in the universe. Honesty, trust, hatred, jealousy, and the fear of the unknown and how it effects people.

MESSAGE - Aliens do exist and they're not benevolent E.T.'s. Friendship is very important.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
