One of the Ten Best “Forgotten” Sci-Fi Classics
A funny thing happened to me on the way to the video store…I ran across a sci-fi film that didn’t rely on space battles, incredible special effects, or magnificent sets and costumes. Instead, it relies on a touching and compelling human story of survival, hate and conflict – and of bitter enemies becoming unlikely allies and, eventually, close friends.
“Enemy Mine” is one of the ten best “forgotten” sci-fi classics – those rare little gems that got overlooked on their initial release, but live on in video release.
Practically abandoned at the box office, “Enemy Mine” found new life on video among fans of the kind of science fiction we only read about as kids – stories that expanded our horizons and made use look at the world in a whole new way, not just wowing us with their dazzling effects.
It is the story of hotshot starfighter pilot Willis Davidge (Dennis Quaid) who, after a dogfight with the reptilian, alien Drac, is stranded on a hostile planet with one of the enemy. At first blinded by their hatred of each other, the pair soon learn that they can only survive by working together. By doing so, they develop a strange friendship that helps break the wall of distrust between enemies.
If you get the chance to check out “Enemy Mine”, give it a chance. It’s not likely to go down in history as the best sci-fi movie ever made, but it does have heart.
Revolutionary and touching
I am ashamed to announce that I had never heard of this movie until last week, and elated to say that I have watched it for the first time tonight. The acting was incredible and the storyline was (for its time) almost completely unheard of, and revolutionary. It is not uncommon, in todays literature and films, to be shown the similarities between enemies; in fact, it is now so common an element that it is sometimes thrown in as an afterthought. But in 1985, the ideas of the day were still largely black and white, good and evil, right and wrong. This movie demonstrated how two enemies, vastly different even down to their very species, could find common ground, and how it is possible for two seemingly opposed views to both be absolutely right. It was a touching exploration, and I strongly urge anyone, whether sci-fi fan or not, to see this movie at least once. The two hours will be better-spent than most, and you may find that you have a new favorite.
