The Fourth Kind is a pretty odd bird. My opinion has been battling with itself over the film, and it’s pretty uncomfortable. On one hand, this “is it real?” (umm, ‘No’ is my guess) alien abduction flick comes with a few undeniably disturbing moments, scenes that would leave me loving the film as a whole in most, if not all, other cases. But The Fourth Kind just has so much that’s frustrating and off-putting in its presentation that I can’t give it the Yay.
