Storyline

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 Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

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 »

Absolutely loved it!!!
13 January 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I loved this film. Original aliens, in an original location. Cast that you had no idea were going to live or not.

I know many of the other reviewers didn't like the invisible alien (cough 'after effects' cough), but quite frankly, we've seen every flesh type alien going. This was trying to be different and i think it worked flawlessly.

What makes it better than say skyline is the fact that humans are given an unbeatable alien to begin with, but during the course of the movie, find a way to fight back.

I agree that the girl at the end swimming to the bus stop was stupid. I also think at some point they would have put on a ski-suit and wrapped themselves in tinfoil for obvious reasons. I also would have tried firing a water pistol at them at some point. I wondered what would have happened if it had rained or snowed as well.

But leaving those aside, this is a great end of the world, alien invasion film. Turn your brain off, sit back with the popcorn and enjoy the flick.
