My first clue should have been that it's a Dennis Quaid film. Thrown by the inclusion of Louis Gosset Jr., a film that should be avoided by everybody. There are no redeeming qualities to this film whatsoever.

A good movie

Honestly, beforehand, I had actually never heard of this movie before but since I have weak spot for Wolfgang Petersen, I thought I should give it a try. It has been a while since Petersen had released anything and he might be retired (he is more than 70 years old after all) and even though his two last movies ('Poseidon' and 'Troy') were both rather disappointing, he did make some pretty cool fli... read more

25 From 85: My Favorite Films Of 1985 (25 movies items)

" Enemy Mine is a film that starts out as a "bad alien" movie & then evolves into a "good alien" movie by intergalactically pondering the question of "Why can't we all just get along?" The truth is, no matter what planet one is from, when it comes to reaching racial harmony, even on an interplanetary scale, we all need to follow Jerry Seinfeld's advice & try to take a bite out of both sides of the black & white cookie. Look to the cookie. We must all look to the cookie. Oh, and to all you sci-fi"

A good movie

“Honestly, beforehand, I had actually never heard of this movie before but since I have weak spot for Wolfgang Petersen, I thought I should give it a try. It has been a while since Petersen had released anything and he might be retired (he is more than 70 years old after all) and even though his two last movies ('Poseidon' and 'Troy') were both rather disappointing, he did make some pretty cool flicks earlier in his career. This movie was actually his first American production and it was actually pretty good. I mean, the plot was nothing really amazing but it was entertaining enough and I really liked the mood. It was also pretty neat to have only two characters so there were no sub-plots or other minor characters to draw the attention. As a result, even though the whole thing is rather pre” read more

Interesting film facts (389 movies items)

"Author Barry Longyear reported at a convention that the studio insisted on adding a subplot involving a mine, thinking the audience would not realize that the "Mine" in the title was a possessive (as in "My Enemy") rather than an object. Terry Gilliam was offered the chance to direct, but turned it down, preferring instead to develop his own project, which would eventually become Brazil. According to Louis Gossett Jr., the Drac language was created from scratch; much of it is actually Russian"

"This movie stands out from many other 80's sci-fi movies, because of the time taken with character development. A story of two enemies forced to work together, this is definitely a recommended watch. "
