Below average alien invasion movie. Tried to be Black Hawk Down crossed with District 9 and Independence Day. Only succeeded in having boring characters whose names I couldn't even remember when they... Read more died. Disappointing given how much potential story there could have been.
Decent sci-fi action, typical US Marines thrown in to an invasion of LA, good flow, easy to follow, mindless action, even my wife couldn't stop watching.
Better than Skyline which has a similar... Read more storyline but with civilians instead of marines.
Awesome movie, exactly what you want from an Sci-Fi / Action / War movie. Sure, it lacks realism, especially annoying in the first half an hour when the marines sneak down the alleys and talk with a... Read more normal voice. If you want realism go for Blackhawk down.
Other than that, awesome action, no love story, no distracting background story, plain action.
Full of edge of the seat suspenseful action. For that, I thought this was a great movie. The acting was also of a good standard, which meant that this wasn't one of those "run of the mill" action... Read more adventures. I just have one question..... Why?!?
Alien invasion movies need subtext. This movie had but one subtext; ie. "US Marines rock!" A poorly veiled propaganda piece for American military 'superiority'. In other words, 'Independence Day' without... Read more the laughs. Pure drivel. A shame, because the effects were superb.
no story line, just 2 hrs of blowing up stuff.
No reason for the invasion, where who what they were.
decent acting but no story to tell!
No originality but plenty of noise and "dramatic" acting.
Quite good from a "wife who can't be bothered with army movies type" point of view. Action based alien invasion without all the technical rubbish and overcomplicated plots many hard core watchers would have preferred. Watched it twice.
Another flag waving big budget recruiting film from the States,oh-no it's Alien invasion time again & the US Marines answer the call,forgettable characters mouthing the usual gung-ho crap.Boring.........
Why does the American armed forces always save the universe? Seems arrogant.
Nice aliens, love the heavy weapon constructs.
