Storyline :In Las Vegas, regenerated ex-con Jack Bruno works as a taxi driver. During a UFO Convention at Planet Hollywood, the skeptical Jack picks up Dr. Alex Friedman, who will present a scientific lecture at the event. Then he is pressed by two henchmen of his former boss, the criminal Wolff, who wants to talk to him, but Jack does not want to return to the crime life. Jack fights and gets rid of them; out of the blue, he finds two teenagers on the backseat of his cab. They say they are siblings, Sara and Seth, and they need to travel to a location outside Las Vegas in the middle of nowhere. Meanwhile, the government finds a spacecraft that crashed near Las Vegas and chases the two aliens; after the investigation of the men of Major Henry Burke, they discover that the two siblings are the aliens. Jack Bruno, Sara and Seth are chased by Henry Burke's team and by "Syphon", a killer from outer space sent to kill them by their planet's military that wants to invade Earth.

It's a Race to Find the Best Fun Facts
The number of Jack's taxi is 1975, shown at the rear right bumper. This is the year Escape to Witch Mountain (1975) was released.
Seth's abilities are similar to those of Marvel Comics' character The Vision. Both characters can manipulate their own molecular density. Seth cannot project any energy beams.
According to several Disney fans theory pages, Anthony and Tina are Tony and Tia who returned to earth, sometime after the events of Return from Witch Mountain (1978), to assist wayward space travelers who inadvertently ended up on Earth. And as for why they didn't use their powers, is because they didn't want to risk blowing their cover with so many feds running around.
At the beginning of the movie, a newspaper cutting is shown with names of Nick Pope and the Rendelsham Forest incident on it.
The taxi used in many of the scenes is a ford crown victoria 2006, you see that specially in close ups because the grill is black and there is no chrome in the car.the black grill was used between 2006-2008, the last years of the car in the market.
