At least that’s what his father told him before he died when Joe was eleven. His father unsuccessfully wrote sci-fi stories, and Joe loves sci-fi. He has been told that he must not deal with humans, unless they are more than 85 percent compatible with himself. When we meet Joe again, he is 26, and the fantasy keeps him going. But is it a fantasy, or is it real? Joe’s life changes radically when he meets a more than 85 percent compatible girl. Can Joe trust himself? Does he know what’s real?
Plot: At eleven years old Joe Norman is told by his dying father that he is an alien hiding on earth. Joe believes him. He grows up to be a die-hard fan-boy working in a comic shop. When he falls for down-to-earth Maria, a fellow sci-fi fan, he is inspired to lead a more normal social existence. Until intergalactic bounty hunters track Joe down at his new office and the couple soon learn the dangerous truth about who Joe really is.

Sci-fi and romance that has some suspense
I doubt anyone expects this to be in a league with Star Wars. Instead it is a nice romantic story that keeps you in suspense. Is Joe going to choose his heroic delusion, or a normal life with his true love? The movie did a good job of taking you back and forth over which it was.
Although the story about a superhero struggling with thinking he was delusional has been done a few times, this is still a cute story. A lot of that is thanks to Jenn Murray who plays the absolutely perfect love interest for a dreamer. She is no Marylin Monroe, but she is as sweet as pure sugar and just as lovable. Whatever Maria did, she was always in love with Joe.
Rafe Spall does a good job in Joe’s totally naive acceptance of his dad’s alien story and still manages to make fun of it just as the movie makes fun of itself and the space hero genre.
Humor is spread throughout the movie. The producers turn their low budget into a strength by using ray guns that look like toys and using other props in the same way. It’s all part of the satire. Not to say there aren’t a couple of decent special effects.
A fantastic story which keeps you in the dark
This little Irish film is a film of which you never really quite are sure what to get out of, and that’s a planned thing from the makers. It uses the ambiguous of using words to such an extent that it makes you think. Because it’s a clever film! Is this film about loss, about dealing with fear of life of is it a story about a guy in denial. I could go on, because there’s a lot more to get out of it.
We meet Joe, and alien on Earth, living and working in Dublin. If he is a real alien, or just feels like it, I won’t reveal, but we start off the story by getting to know why he is an alien, and that his father died when he was 11, presumably trying to make it easier for his son, telling an amazing story. But is the story true, or a life lie? He keeps away from women, because his father told him he needs more than 90 percent compatibility to start having a relationship to a human. Well, thing might be possible, won’t it, even for nerds?
Well, does that sound lame? It is, and starts off a funny ride. The film is charming, and interesting, as it gives a certain perspective on human life. It’s almost like a family film, and it’s a or a romantic comedy. Not a laugh out loud one, but a charmingly funny story which easily will charm you.
The film is well acted, and I like the way it uses conversation and misunderstandings as a driving force. It’s like you’ve heard, that men are from Mars and women are from Venus. It keeps you in the black, and is supposed to. Good film making which gives life to a great idea. The only thing I’m not too fond of is the over use of music. The spacey music is appropriate, but ruins the pleasure a bit for me.
But all in all this is a great watch, and something completely different. Maybe something if a mind bender!? It can be seen as a romantic comedy, it can be seen as a sweet family entertainment, or a smart word bender about communication. It deserves a big audience. Enjoy!
