IMDB, in the quotes section: "'Maybe I can help. I'm a vetinarian.' [She mispronounces veterinarian]." I spotted this on Netflix, remembered it existed, and became quickly incensed. Ridiculously jingoistic, incomprehensibly shot, masturbatory and somehow even stupider than its stupid, stupid title. Between this and that other silly goatfuck "Olympus Has Fallen," I'm pretty over Aaron Eckhart's overacting, dopey mug.
It's essentially Independence Day filmed in the handheld camera style of Black Hawk Down; which is awesome. Featuring a strong cast of cliched but likeable characters and fantastic action sequences that move along at a breakneck pace as the mystery of the aliens is unraveled and the protagonist's tale of redemption unfolds. It combines everything fans of sci-fi/action & war movies love and is simply a blast to watch.
I like this kind of movie but this one doesn't have anything special. But I really enjoyed that line in the end: "We already had breakfast, sir" and what it represented. And really, every movie about war and that kind of stuff, I must say; congrats to all makeup artists on this one. It seems real!
Good: Stuff blows up, you watch stuff blow up. Bad: No memorable characters, the aliens are neither noteworthy nor frightening. Just about every moment in the movie could be predicted with ease. Cookie cutter alien action movie plot with little reason to ever watch it again.
A hot garbage juice piece of shit mess of a movie,its like a rip off of modern warfare with some robot ET type things(matter of fact I rather be playing that then watching this bs).there's so many things in this film that executed so fuckin poorly,how u gonna make a generic sci fi epic on a budget?....what a waste of "talent" and time...
