One of those... What if movies. Simply brilliant!
This movie is good! Both Jeff Bridges and Kevin Spacey are two of my favorite actors and the chemistry between the two in this movie was great.
Is Prot from another planet or is he just crazy? His story is so believable that even his own psychiatrist begins to doubt in what he thinks at first is just a disturbed and confused man.
As the story goes further we see that the man now known as Prot (Kevin Spacey) had an unimaginable tragedy happening to him. Dr. Mark Powell (Jeff Bridges) thinks that that is the reason he thinks that he is an alien, to cope with his loss. However the end of the story leaves some room open that he might be an alien after all.
I thought this movie was incredible. I was expecting a load of alien on earth cliches but not really. Any cliches are at the beginning and played for humour. I liked how it moved from a funny movie to a more serious movie.
It dealt more with being human than alien. It doesn't used any normal heart warming movie formula. The story is put together really well. The mysteries reveal just enogh. The plot unfolds perfectly. Spacey and Bridges are perfect. It leaves you with so much to think about. Also a good ending.
My interpretation is that Prot was inside Robert's body until he could leave him in a safe place. Prot left and took the one patient with him..... but there are many other theories. Very emotional movie
I like the leads and liked the premise, but I still had low expectations for this one. And then it went and snuck up on me. Very nicely done.
