The American software designers Sean and Ben travel to Moscow to sell their software to investors. However, their Swedish partner Skyler pulls a fast one on Sean and Ben, and they are out of the business. They go to a nightclub, where they meet American Natalie and Australian Anne and they flirt with the girls and see Skyler in the club. Out of the blue, the population is surprised by lights, which they mistake for natural phenomena. But soon, they learn that the lights are aliens invading Earth and using power supply to annihilate mankind. Sean, Ben, Natalie, Anne and Skyler hide in the kitchen and when they leave the place, they seek out survivors on the street. Are they the last people on Earth? Written by

In the opening scene, the plane externally is a Boeing 737-700 and when the camera zooms into the windows looking in, you can see that the seating arrangement is 3 seats an aisle and 3 more seats - the normal configuration for this aircraft. However when the camera zooms inside the aircraft, the cabin layout is much bigger with a 3-3-3 seat layout and dual aisles. The only twin engine aircraft that Boeing has that could match this seat configuration is the Boeing 777. At the end of the scene just as the plane is landing in the sunset, a completely different aircraft - a Boeing 767 is shown landing. See more »
Russian Flight Attendant:
Sir, could you please turn that off? It can interfere with the plane's navigation systems.
Do you really believe that? Because people have been talking outside, you know, the flight attendant social circle of trust, and word is that nobody really believes that.
Excuse my friend. He was dropped on his head as a child.
No. If these were really that bad, the wouldn't let you bring them on the plane, flat out. If you agree with me, don't unfold your arms.

I was very skeptical to spend money on a movie with a 4.9 IMDb Rating but in the end of the day I went with my guts which never let me down. I saw the trailers back in summer 2011 and was already excited.
So what is the problem with this movie? Why does it have such bad reviews? The environment has a lot to with it. The movie is set in Moscow, the most actors are Russian and the 2 supposedly American girls are occasionally speaking with a British accent. This is probably a bit too much for a "patriot". The next point would be the acting, it is not that good and the special effects range from brilliant to not so brilliant but then again this is a 30 Million Budget movie, they city of Moscow went through hoops to make it happen by closing down main roads and entire quarters. The scenes when humans are getting killed are extremely well done an innovative and the whole plot is very exciting and doesn't give much time to breath.
If you aren't ignorant to let another country but the USA be the good guys for once you will simply love that movie, if your heroes must kiss the love interest in front of an American flag then forget about it.
Great movie, not so great actors but all in all enjoyable and 8 points for a new idea of an Alien Invasion.
