Alien Opponent is a 2010 sci-fi horror movie that takes place in an isolated small town in Nevada. The film stars Jeremy London as David, a newly elected sheriff of the town who is trying to earn the respect of his fellow officers and the townspeople. However, his ambition is put to the test when a violent alien race from another planet arrives to invade Earth.

The movie begins with an intense scene where a group of scientists, armed with high-tech weapons, is trying to capture a creature from another planet. The creature, which is not fully revealed in this scene, terrifies the scientists, and they eventually manage to trap it in a shipping container. The container is then loaded onto a truck and sent to a secure facility for further investigation.

Once the truck arrives in the small town, the driver and security guards are killed by the alien, which finally emerges from the container. The sheriff and his deputies are called to the scene, and they are quickly overwhelmed by the creature's strength and intelligence. They soon realize that this is not a typical criminal they are dealing with, but rather an intelligent creature that has come to Earth to fight and conquer.

The plot of the movie centers around the battle between the townspeople and the alien invaders, who have the ability to morph into human form. As the townspeople fight to survive, they are joined by a group of hunters who are passing through the town. Among them is a retired wrestler named Roddy Piper, who is known for his exceptional fighting skills.

The movie builds up the tension slowly and effectively, with the aliens appearing only in brief glimpses or as shadowy figures. This contributes to the overall feeling of suspense and the unpredictable nature of the threat. The movie also has several well-executed action scenes that keep the audience engaged and invested in the story.

One of the most interesting aspects of the movie is the way it blurs the lines between good and evil. The aliens are portrayed as ruthless killers, but it is revealed that they are not entirely without reason. The human characters, on the other hand, are flawed and conflicted, with some willing to make drastic sacrifices to stop the invading force and others willing to collaborate with the aliens for personal gain.

The central conflict of the movie is resolved in a climactic battle between the townspeople and the alien invaders. This sequence is well choreographed and intense, with high stakes and emotional resonance. The movie ends on a hopeful note, with the human characters finding a way to work together to defend their planet from further alien attacks.

Overall, Alien Opponent is a solid sci-fi horror movie that will satisfy fans of the genre. While it does not break new ground, it delivers a satisfying story with engaging characters and effective action scenes. The performances of the cast, particularly Jeremy London and Roddy Piper, are strong and grounded, lending credibility to the emotional beats of the story. Anyone looking for an entertaining, fast-paced thriller should give this movie a chance.

Alien Opponent is a 2010 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 31 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.4.
