Alien Code is a sci-fi thriller film released in 2018, directed by Michael G. Cooney. The film stars Kyle Gallner, Azura Skye, and Mary McCormack. The movie was filmed in the United States. The movie revolves around Alex, played by Kyle Gallner, who is a journalist interested in conspiracy theories related to extraterrestrial life. He is working on a video that claims that extraterrestrial beings are influencing the world's major governments. After receiving a tip, Alex travels to a small town in New Mexico, where he learned that an alien signal has been intercepted.

Throughout the film, Alex is trying to uncover the truth behind the alien signal and its potential links to the mysterious deaths of several locals in the town. He allies with his ex-girlfriend, Juno (Azura Skye), and her father, a retired military intelligence officer (Mary McCormack), to decrypt the extraterrestrial communication allegedly hidden in the signal.

As the story progresses, a shadowy organization with ties to the government becomes involved, leading to an escalating conflict over the discovery of the signal. Meanwhile, Juno has a profound link to the signal, which makes their search more urgent as she experiences flashes that suggest her connection to this extraterrestrial communication.

The interplay between Alex and Juno provides an interesting dynamic, as their previous romantic relationship and the nature of the events they are experiencing challenges their understanding of one another. Furthermore, Alex's dogged pursuit eventually pushes his reluctant allies to confront a web of extremism and secrecy, emphasising the lengths to which those in power will go to maintain dominance over the truth.

The film Alien Code is heavily influenced by conspiracy theories related to the U.S. Air Force's study of UFOs, commonly known as Project Blue Book. The film blurs the lines between reality and fiction in a way that exposes the power of secrecy and disinformation.

The cinematography and sound design both work together to create a moody atmosphere that fits the narrative perfectly. Throughout the film, there is a sense of impending doom that is delivered via the visuals and the soundtrack. The town at the center of the story is shown to be bleak and almost desolate, which ties in well with the theme of isolation that runs throughout the tale.

In conclusion, Alien Code is a film that stands out in the sci-fi and thriller genres. Although the film's pacing is slow, the movie's concept is intriguing enough for the viewer to stick around to the end. The movie tackles exciting conspiracy theories and presents the potential implications of such discoveries, making it a great watch for sci-fi lovers.
