The Fourth Kind (2009) begins with Milla Jovovich introducing herself as “the actress Milla Jovovich,” and then pursues the wretched conceit of showing supposed “actual” footage of events in split-screen with the the re-enacted events. This conceit is propagated throughout the film, either because the filmmakers were trying to shore up this complete shambles of a movie, or because the director was so incompetent that he thought it would be some sort of avant-garde technique befitting the high drama on display.
In any case, this is a complete waste of time. What gets me, though, is all the hype around it at the time of release, and issues around its streaming availability, as if The Fourth Kind were God’s greatest gift to horror and sci-fi fans everywhere. 2/10
