I was just goofing around on the Internet and found THIS review for Contact. It was down right amusing to read, actually. I personally thought Contact was a great movie. Any thoughts people?...

Throughout the film we never actually bear witness to any aliens, well apart from one who takes on human form, and while it may disappoint some sci-fi fans I actually find it quite fitting as this is not so much a film about alien lifeforms as it is about humanity.
The fact of the matter is, Contact is not as much about space exploration and aliens and such, as it is about the search for aliens and the process of exploration itself.
