DVD Review: The Fourth Kind, starring Milla Jovovich, Will Patton and Elias Koteas

The Fourth Kind, the title a reference to the ranking of alien encounters, is a movie unlike any other. The DVD of this “documentary” hits stores today, and I took a look back to see if I truly do believe — or at least if the movie is worth $15 worth.

The film begins with Milla Jovovich coming right out and saying she is portraying a real-life character, named Dr. Abigail Tyler, and that what you are about to see is real and backed up by the actual footage. We soon learn that Dr. Tyler’s husband was murdered, and as she picked up his patients she started to notice an alarming pattern. It seems that the people of Nome, Alaska are all experiencing bizarre events, suffering from memory loss and are providing evidence of what may be alien abductions. Despite cautions from her friends, Dr. Tyler gets closer and closer to these events until "the phenomenon" effects her too. Is it little green men? Evidence of inbreeding in Sarah Palin country? Just a bunch of crazy mumbo-jumbo? We don’t know.
