Feel bad for leaving less than 5 stars...I’m a believer and contributed to the making of...

I supported the making of this movie, via a crowdfunding donation, and I’m happy I did. Sadly, I have some concerns about the final product.

I am disappointed Jeremy Piven is narrating, as his voice just isn’t a good match for the ultimately uplifting message at the end of the movie. I really admire Dr. Greer and what he contributes to the UFO community. Unfortunately, I can’t give a 5 star review, as halfway into the movie was a little turned off with the bashing of To The Stars Academy. I’ve seen other interviews where the “fall-out” between the two men was discussed and I don’t think it needed to be rehashed in the movie. We get it, their methods are suspect, but at this point, the UFO community needs to get together and realize the conversation/experience is bigger than any one group. ET’s travel great distances, some are higher Dimensionals with a vibration we can’t even imagine, so I think they can overcome the machinations of man if they want to.

Also, I’m not certain I buy into the idea that the world is fully ready for disclosure in light of recent events and our own responses to the lock downs we are experiencing now. Sadly, the premise of the movie starts with the statement that disclosure has hasn’t. The documents released by the government are censored and as quickly as some tantalizing details are provided, they are “walked back” by the same government. ET existence is still considered fringe news. It would seem with this topic, and in light of our current situation in our country and world, the media is still, as Danny Sheehan comments, under a controlled narrative.

Ultimately, it bums me out to say I’m less than enthused by the movie. I will still support Dr. Greer and will contribute to any future movies as well though. CE-5 is important...I just don’t feel this movie fully captured all of the great aspects to it.

Greer went full... well you know.
Verified purchase
He sounds absolutely insane these days. A few takeaways...

1) He's meditated himself onto ET craft.
2) He's given ET the "protocol" for contact.
3) He's reused so much footage from Sirius, Unacknowledged, that you've likely seen most of it already.
4) Given the impression that meditation is the way we all communicate, space and time and consciousness are all interconnected.
5) He can invite ET craft over for dinner, they talk, laugh, have fun.
6) He again insinuates that the government is after him.
7) To the Stars Academy is pushing the deep state narrative of ET are dangerous and a threat.

An important film, and that's an understatement
Verified purchase
I had the good fortune of attending lectures and workshops given by Dr. Greer and attending one of his CE5 excursions in North Carolina. Because of the stance of what I'll call 'universal truth and reconciliation' outlined in this documentary, he and his colleagues stand apart from other leaders in the field who assume there is some kind of Extraterrestrial threat. For this reason, I salute Dr. Greer and all he does. As the film indicates, Unity consciousness and love will lead us where we need to go.

The Truth
Verified purchase
I've been following Dr Greer's information for a very long time. This movie opens up the realms of what our heart/mind connections have in order to change ourselves and our world. This is an exciting time for our present world and the future for new generations to come. We are blessed to be on the Earth at this time to explore and bring forth change for human kind. Thank you Dr Greer and the so many unsung heroes who helped make the awareness known for those who wish to be part of the wonderful change on our planet. My rich culture of Lakota/Nakota people have long known this wonderful knowledge, we are all truly connected and the answers to what we need is within us all.

Proof that we can communicate with aliens!
Verified purchase
This documentary has been produced by the world's leading authority on UFOs and aliens, Dr. Steven Greer. It contains hundreds of photos and videos of UFOs and a few aliens. The evidence presented here, coupled with the evidence in his previous documentary "Unacknowledged," is more than enough to prove that this subject is real and of paramount importance to us all. The documentary contains a perfect balance of historical information on the subject, the 'science' behind alien communications, and Dr. Greer's present-day project of initiating contact with beings from other locations in the universe. I highly recommend this documentary. You can also install the CE5 contact app to your phone and learn how to contact aliens yourself. Let's establish peaceful relations with these ETs! :)

Refreshingly Empowering
Verified purchase
I'm giving this film 5+ stars for its amazing content, interviews, stories, information, overall message, CE5 footage, and for the refreshingly positive and empowering section at the end. I thought that proved stellar enough to overlook the somewhat distracting style of cinematography, which, although not that bad (I would give that 4 stars), I thought it detracted a bit from the film's essence, mood, and flow. None-the-less, I'm giving it 5 stars overall as a complete package.

Once again, thank you, Dr. Greer, for sharing your continued work on disclosing the truth about a peaceful extraterrestrial presence that has been here for some time, exposing the fear-generating propaganda that is being spun around disclosure, sharing personal stories about your journey as well as experiences others have had, and most importantly sharing and showing people how they can initiate their own peaceful and conscious-based contact for the advancement of our humanity and planet.  

I've read several of Dr. Greer's books and seen his other movies. I've been waiting to see this kind of empowering content in one. During a time of information overload and a fear-saturated culture, it's is refreshing to showcase our personal power that is beneficial not only on an individual level but on a planetary and universal one as well.

To respond to a reviewer who thought this was just a long commercial for an app, I completely disagree.  People who watch this are interested in the subject, and it goes to follow, they'd be interested in trying to make peaceful contact themselves (power to the people). Having just one tiny mention at the end of the movie about an app that is a tool people can use is in no way a movie-long commercial. If you blinked during that part, you'd miss it. I welcomed the brief mention, as any additional tools, mediations, or protocols would be great for a novice person.

Finally, this movie has helped to confirm some of my suspicions as to why there is so much fear-ridden disclosure going on now. I've read and listened to a lot of people over the decades on this subject, and I've found no one with a higher-integrity or consistent message as Dr. Greer. If you are genuinely interested in extraterrestrials, UFOs, personal growth, and human evolution this is a must-see movie.

It's essentially a long-form advertisement for an app.
Verified purchase
I was enjoying the content, although it felt a little over dramatized what with the excessive fake crying and "survivor's guilt". All but the last 5 minutes or so was tolerable and a worthwhile purchase. HOWEVER, the final 5 minutes of the film is essentially just an advertisement for Dr. Greer's guided meditation app which costs $10. Such a blatantly obvious advertisement absolutely steals any semblance of credibility from all the content preceding it. I was honestly mildly confused and surprised that something like that would be shoehorned into what otherwise would have been a solid drama-doc.
