Horrible, then good
This movie, an obvious indie film, had great potential. The premise is actually good. Being stuck out in the middle of the desert some miles out from Las Vegas, with possible aliens stalking you, is an interesting starting point. The problem is that it wasn't used as a starting point.
For whatever reason, the writer of this movie filled the first three-forths of the script with some of the most boring and irritating dialog I've ever witnessed. The actors did their best, the direction didn't stray towards horrible. It's just the writing was notorious. After about 50 or so minutes, the movie actually gets fairly good. It's never great, although the final scene (flying through the air) was actually very well done. It almost seems as if this was meant to be a short film, and someone got a greenlight to make it feature length, but they had no idea how to do that, so they just told the actors to ad-lib and do their best. My suggestion, literally, is to fast- forward to about the 45 minute mark and go from there.
