this movie was such a waste of time. i am huge war movie fan but this was a horrible take on war. I actually went in expecting a movie with no story but this was bad. except for staff Sr, it seemed all the marines were holding a gun for the first time. do not go to this movie.
I enjoyed this movie. Watch it for what it is...an alien invasion movie. Don't expect an Academy Award or something for this, because if you do, go watch something else....I recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys action. Well done!
This movie was more like a video game then a movie, The story line was very slow and almost nonexistant so just go out for dinner and skip this movie.
didn't like the hand-held camera motion
wicked...and to the idiot that says people are placing reviews on the trailer because it doesn't open until tonight, the movie opened this afternoon...goof.
Great Movie! As far as alien invasion movies go, this one is by far the most realistic one made as of yet. From start to finish its filled with great action, incredible special effects and believable dialogue. The method of filming makes you feel as if you were right there with them, urging them on and gripping your seat in anticipation. If you want a great Sci-Fi action movie, this is it. If you want a movie with deeper seated meaning then this isn't the movie for you.
Great popcorn action movie with cool effects. It was kind of filmed like Black Hawk Down.
Very fun movie - will see it again.
it started so well, but that was the extent of the story. the action scenes were awesome, except for the constant high fiving and back patting and endorsement of the marines. that became abit tiresome...all in all it entertaining i was never bored. i just felt the story started strong and went no where. there were so many possibilities that this story good have been really good.
Definitely a fun popcorn movie ... so leave your stress(ors) at home, put your feet up ... and enjoy the show.
I went to this movie with high expectations and left feeling like I wasted two hours of my life. This movie is a little more than a weak hybrid of Blackhawk Down and Independence day; and was filmed by an epileptic on a pogo stick (seriously). The shaky cam was used so excessively I felt nauseous and had a hard time seeing what was happening and by the end didn't care what was happening. If you wait for the DVD to hit the $5 bin you might get your moneys worth.
had it's moments, but all in all really cheesy, action was ok i guess :)
Amazing movie!! Touching n real! I love it!
This movie was noisy, noisy, noisy and could have had the potential of being a great movie - good cast - all wasted!!!
I read several extremely negative reviews, but saw it today anyway. I enjoyed it, though some of the scenes intended to be emotional were a collection of cliches. Err... okay... ALL of those scenes. 3 stars out of five for the fun factor, if you enjoy action or sci fi. Much less if you don't -- but then why would you be seeing this?
Worst movie of the year.It felt like being trapped in a CNN war report for two hours. People in the theater were laughing at some scenes.
This is an epic movie, beautiful special effects and stunts. Edge of your seat the whole time. Will definitely buy the blu-ray when it comes out.
I was amazed! Go watch this movie!
EPIC film! There were some typical annoying bits (like at the end when they're like "yeah!, were going back out there even though there is no way in hell our bodies wouldn't be shutting down right now, and screw the food because we have infinite energy, hoorah!" - stupid marine macho bs just like in BHD), but otherwise is was freakin awesome! 5 stars easy...
This years District 9!!! Better than Independence Day and Super 8 combined. This movie should be a wake up call that human beings are insignificant compared to aliens.
What a great movie this is, just like Avatar, ppl are here for the special effects, nothing less. Go see it if u r an action sci-fi fan!
The movie was shown across Canada last night in preview screenings, that's why people are writing reviews.
Loved It!!!!! Ending got a touch cheesy but not enough to spoil the film.
The movie opens tonight so noone has seen it so why are there reviews? Based solely on the trailer?
OMG! Aaron Eckhart is sooo steamy dreamy!
Simply Awesome!! OMGGG
PPL omg this is nothing like District 9, get your facts straight.
Looks like another version of Independence Day except from the ground? Either way the action should keep me awake!
it was amazing i want to see it again
amazing and how is this like district 9
This was a lot better when it was called DISTRICT 9.
naturally los angeles. where else could it take place?? get me a director please.
Though we make movies of this we also know this is what is our real future
It will keep you wanting to know more
