What is Proximity about?

In 1979, lumberjack Carl was abducted by aliens in Alaska. Present day, Isaac’s alien encounter goes viral after capturing it on video.

He meets Sara who had a similar experience. Arrested by a shady government agency, they escape with help from hacker Zed. They locate Carl who reveals the aliens will arrive in British Columbia soon.

At the alien rendezvous, Carl and Sara are shot but the aliens save them, unlocking Isaac’s powers. They flee in a UFO. Months later, Isaac and Sara live normally, while Zed and Carl run a science program, and the government agent is fired.


Proximity starts out really cool and exciting, but then gets super confusing. That’s why, the film has received poor reviews from critics as 4.8 rating on IMDb, 38% score on Rotten Tomatoes, and 38% on Metacritic.

In the beginning, it grabs your attention when a lumberjack gets taken by aliens way back in 1979.

Then in present day, an ordinary guy named Isaac has a crazy encounter with a UFO that he catches on video.

At first, the mystery of what happened to Isaac and the shady government agents trying to cover it up is really interesting.

But then the movie throws in way too many new characters and story lines that don’t make any sense. There’s this totally random part about the aliens studying Jesus Christ that comes out of nowhere.

Even though the plot gets messy, the movie has some cool-looking alien designs. And for a low budget film, the visual effects aren’t too bad.

So if you like cheesy B-movies about aliens, Proximity is still kind of fun in a silly way. Just don’t expect it to be the next big, mindblowing sci-fi hit movie. It has too many dumb parts that will make you shake your head.
