    …he’s intentionally bland. In the original short story (and in every adaptation of it), the character is intentionally named Nada, i.e. “no one”, as in no one in particular.

    It’s to say that anyone could take down the ‘alien conspiracy’ if only that person was motivated to do so. Science fiction can be funny that way.

    Now that I’m hearing this movie described in the abstract, it sounds a bit like a precursor to Total Recall.

    If you don’t get it, watch “The Perverts Guide To Ideology” many of the problems in the movie (the blantness of Nada, The way to long fight scene,… ) will make more sense.

    I’m with Lupa. Only I want to add that this movie is too schlocky to work as serious commentary on the real world. Almost all the great works of satire function on 2 levels. This works on 1 and 1 only: dopey sci-fi action flick. Though, I’ll admit that I have a lot of problems with Carpenter’s work after Starman– which is criminally underrated.
