Remember pre-1997 when the Men In Black were dark mysterious shady characters who were better suited for horror movies than anything else? The days before Will Smith quipped his way through a generic sci-fi trilogy?
Well here we have said Men In Black, except these guys are the aliens and aligning with some parts of the government in scheme to bring more of their kind to earth through a portal and stuff.....
So this is the very definition of 1990's b-movie cheese. Car chases, gun fights and all the usual cliches.
Along for the ride we have another alien of a different species who teams with the secret service to take them down. Said alien is played by Dennis Christopher and that's just weird. For those unfamiliar with Christopher he's generally a weedy, sneaky, weak character and has been in movies such as the original It (1990) and Fade To Black (1980). He's a great actor but seeing him in such a role was odd and more than a little questionable.
Not great but not entirely awful The Silencers is an interesting enough take your brain out movie, probably best you take your expectations out as well.
Old school cheese
Dennis Christopher in an action role is a bizzare thing
Not constructed very well
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
Mysterious long blonde haired guys were a big thing in the 90's
Action / Sci-Fi
