Movie Summary

Robert Lieberman
Released:
1995
Rating:
PG-13
Fire in the Sky is the 1993 cult sci-fi mystery favorite that is based on a true story and has terrified a generation of moviegoers since its release. In 1975, five loggers were driving through the desolate forests of Arizona and one of them is seemingly killed or kidnapped by a giant pulsing orange UFO. The others take off and return in a hurry to town and don't report the incident. When they finally do, everyone else in the little community of Snowflake thinks that they killed Travis Walton (D. B. Sweeney) and left his body up there somewhere. Even the state's criminal investigator (James Garner) is skeptical. One or two thorough police searches of the area turn up nothing -- not the crater that the loggers claim was created by the UFO -- but no body either. Young Travis is missing for five days and nights, dressed only in denims, in the mountains where the temperature drops into the 20s. When he turns up, he's naked, incoherent, bewhiskered, and looks slightly used. He tells his friends who, once again, delay reporting the return of the dead Walton. Later Walton, in a flashback, informs the authorities that he spent the missing time aboard a kind of space ship.moreless

    The scenes with the aliens are a bit psychedelic, but then again, so they perhaps should be. How can you poperly memorize something that human mind should not understand? This is drama, and it shows. I liked the movie more than I perhaps should, for some odd reason. It is inspiring, deep, and definitely well made - which means the acting is good.
