Stitched together from segments of the TV series Tracker, this sci-fi adventure has more life in it that you might expect. One million light years away from Earth, 218 convicts escape the planet Cirron 17 through a worm hole. They flee to Earth, and dogged professional alien tracker Daggon (Adrien Paul) follows, determined to capture homicidal Rhee (Joanie Laurer), whose victims include Daggon's wife and daughter. In order to blend into his new surroundings, Daggon adopts takes on the identity of a male model the first human image he spots and takes the name "Cole" from the underwear the model is advertising. Wandering near Chicago, the skimpily clad Cole gets a lift from Mel Porter (Amy Price-Francis), who offers a sympathetic ear and her apartment. Mel's grandma, it turns out, knew a thing or two about Aliens. Unlike the shape-shifting Daggon, Rhee must kill people and assume their forms in order to survive. Daggon soon discovers that Zin (Geraint Win Davies), a general from the enemy planet of Varda, is in cahoots with the Pentagon's General Young (Richard Blackburn). Daggon uses a tiny prison orb to suck up Rhee's essence, but must still locate the other riff-raff Zin liberated as part of a larger plan Daggon doesn't yet understand. Using Mel's computer, Daggon delves electronically into Zin's conspiracy. Daggon and a sympathetic alien are captured by federal agents at a mini-Roswell facility and Daggon's helpmate subsequently bites the dust and becomes Zin's instrument for resurrecting Rhee's vengeful brother. Can Daggon prevent Zin from locating documents hidden on Earth that could give him the greatest powers in the universe? Though the film is bogged down by repetitive chase sequences, Daggon and Mel's scenes are always entertaining. Paul and Price-Francis establish a calm oasis from all the mayhem surrounding them and their rapport favorably recalls the romantic sci-fi adventure STARMAN (1984).
