2.5 stars. Overall, a solid piece from a group of people who are new to film, good performances, and the aliens were cool. But. It's ridiculous to paint the thugs in a sympathetic light by showing one childhood picture and by putting them fight against aliens when the characters are caricatures at best. Decent as a simple action romp, but not much else.
2-3. Funny, lightly humanistic, and political (if you're into that sort of thing). I dug it okay; it knows how to land some scares, and some nice action scenes. I question its pukey yellow/turquoise green color palette, but I don't think it detracts from an otherwise fun action romp that elapses in one night.
Es otra película de "invasiones extraterrestres", pero con todo y su reducido presupuesto, sorprende por su original y audaz premisa, con una trama que pone a una pandilla de asaltantes negros teniendo que combatir un ataque extraterrestre, y unir fuerzas con una enfermera blanca que intentaron asaltar. Divertida, con sus dosis de horror, y diversión.
almost ends on a cadence of social responsibility ("should have just played fifa...") only to show that doctrine's error: no matter how selfless you act as a black boy, the gentle protest of a white woman will always hold more weight in the world. potent shit. i'm still unpacking this one.
