Los Angeles and other cities around the world are being bombarded by meteors that seem to be slowing down once they hit the earth's atmosphere. The earth is suddenly being invaded by space aliens that have landed off the shore of LA, and who begin killing everybody along the beach. The military is ordered into action. Marine Staff Sergeant Nantz (Aaron Eckhart), who was about to retire, is reassigned to a new platoon. The platoon, flown by chopper to the forward operating base at Santa Monica Airport, is being led by a new 2nd Lt. Martinez (Ramon Rodriguez). They are sent on a mission to rescue some civilians who are trapped at the police station within alien territory. They only have 3 hours to complete their mission and get out before the Air Force bombs that zone. Written by

Besides Captain Williams famous quote "Retreat hell, we just got here", there is another famous marine "Retreat Hell" quote. When his marines were surrounded at the Chosin River in Korea, Major General Oliver P. Smith was asked if they were retreating, he responded "Retreat hell! We're not retreating, we're just advancing in a different direction". In the movie, _Retreat Hell (1950)_, Frank Lovejoy's character, Lieutenant Colonel Steve L. Corbett, issues the famous quote.

The scientist interviewed on TV said that the aliens were interested in the "composition" of Earth's oceans, specifically saying Earth is the only known place in the universe with liquid water. However, he should have said "state," which means solid, liquid or gas. Water's "composition" would refer to its salinity and other mineral content. See more »

I actually did decide twice not to go to this movie. That was all based on the very negative reviews I was reading - crappy camera, too many close-ups, everything cliché and so on.
Then I decided to go see if all the reviews were true - and as often happens, I did not find any of that in the movie. In other words none of that was disturbing. I think it had just the right amount of all of what was listed before and all in all it is a good movie. Perhaps it is not an excellent movie that moves you deeply. But very good as an entertainment, much better than some of the recent action movies. Even more enjoyable than the Adjustment Bureau.
