Overview

Love means never having to say that you're ugly in the extravagant fantasy film Enemy Mine. Earthling Dennis Quaid is Davidge, one of many space warriors engaged in a bloody extraterrestrial battle against the Draconians. Crash-landing on a faraway planet, Davidge is forced into an "up close and personal" with the Drac (Lou Gossett Jr.), a repellant, reptilian creature. Evidently a bivalve, the Drac gives birth to a baby Drac just before expiring. Now a reluctant foster father, Davidge tries to keep himself and the baby alive while the war continues to rage all around them. The special effects (courtesy Industrial Light and Magic) are serviceable if not brilliant, and the acting is okay so far as it goes. What socks over Enemy Mine is Rolf Zehetbauer's awe-inspiring production design and Chris Walas' superb makeup work. Though a favorite on home video, the film deserves to be seen on a wide theatre screen.

While the movie initially grabs you as typical purely sci-fi space movie(space man gets stranded on foreign planet hides from aliens ) it develops into a much deeper story about the nature of prejudices (not in your face heavy). Both actors were believable -- Dennis Quaid just like any young soldier gone to war. Lou Gosset Jr -- touching performance. Nice effects and staging. No gratuitous'action'/dialogue just to stretch the film time.
