Genre: Science Fiction
Rating:  5 (from 3 votes)
Review: Jack Sholder's sci-fi actioner pitts a body-hopping intergalactic killer against two very different officers of the law.

When detective Tom Beck (Nouri) is ordered to assist FBI agent Lloyd Gallagher (MacLachlan) in his pursuit of the shape-shifting maniac, it soon becomes apparent that Gallagher has an awful lot to learn about his new, temporary lifestyle.

Although Gallagher's true identity is hinted at (or rather, bellowed) during the opening half-hour, this doesn't stop The Hidden fair galloping along, shrugging aside several nonsensical moments to emerge as an entertaining, if undemanding thriller.

Action junkies will certainly applaud Sholder's frequent forays into areas usually reserved for more traditional cop-buddy movies, and if you can forgive those rocky shape-shifting scenes that just get sillier, you're guaranteed a good time: right up to a gratifying, if totally unsurprising finale. Agent Cooper would have been proud.
