Walker senses something is wrong because the clerk in room 86 doesn't blink. Phillips confirms that the aliens never blink. But there are scenes showing some of them blinking; for example, when the alien queen/Liz Quinlan is yelling at her drones, she blinks several times; Dalton also blinks in this scene, but not as obviously.

This is a simple, low budget(looks so!) movie of aliens on earth.
I wish the pace of the movie could have been more fast and lot more engaging but still, it gives an interesting take on man's predicament as the aliens begin to take over. Quite different from the usual Hollywood stuff.
The few actors who made some impact here are Gil Bellows as the lonely archaeologist who tumbles on something very wrong and Suleka Mathew as the pest exterminator. Rest are forgettable, including Daryl Hannah's presence.
Sad, this movie had oodles of potential and could have done much better.
Verdict: Nice try but still boring anyway. Let the aliens invade :)
