A great movie - blending entertaiment with thoughtful, sometimes humourous, subtle social comment.
Outstanding character development of the main character, who starts off as a complete dork.... Read more..
Excellent effects, awesome weaponry ( when is the game coming? ) - a movie that goes beyond the simple concept of aliens as friends or enemies.
Makes you think about the inherent way that human beings treat something they don't understand. This story could be about apartheid (ironically its set in SA) or the oppression of any race or refugees... Read more. A very unexpected movie and one that keeps you guessing what's coming next. A reflection of the human race's sometime ignorance to the value of understanding
Only rented this as it was one of Peter Jacson's lesser known. A pretty slow start and was wondering why I was bothering, but picked up in the middle and actually found myself drawn in. Not a bad watch in the end.
I thought this was quite a thought-provoking movie that had great ideas and flew in the face of the usual 'higher-purpose' alien movies, where humans are always welcoming of contact with new life, and... Read more hit fairly close to the money-hungry mentality of larger corporations. I initially disliked the documentary style, but as the movie progressed, I could see that it actually worked quite well. I also thought the character development was well done.
The only disappointment for me was the goriness of this movie, and I was unable to watch certain scenes - therefore missing out on parts of the story (which is interesting, because I never had a problem with early Peter Jackson movies - perhaps the humorous bent of 'Braindead' and 'Bad Taste' helped make it more palatable?).
Great movie, good story, good plot. The movie was well directed to catch the imagination of the viewer
dumb movie...I would waste time getting it out...there are better Sci-fi movies out than this one
all i can say is, this move is RUBBISH from start to finish. i would not waste your time on it
the first 10 minutes were funny, and it went downhill big time after that.
Okay the special effects look awesome! Blue Ray rules! The plot, well it's okay. Fairly Sci fi although a little annoying at times. I kept waiting for the main character to do something. Watchable... Read more but don't expect it to live up to the hype. It never will.
Good movie. It keeps in pace with what we humans would do if this did happen
