Storyline

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 Douglas Young (the-movie-guy)

Goofs

In the early scenes set in Camp Pendleton, several A-10's are shown on the flight line. A-10's are flown exclusively by the U.S. Air Force, not the Marines. MCAS Camp Pendleton houses only helicopter squadrons, and fixed wing close air support aircraft such as F/A-18's and AV-8B Harriers would be launched from other nearby Marine bases such as Miramar.

Quotes

[first lines]
Reporter on TV: ...an unprecedented meteor shower falling off the coast of Tokyo. The entire city is mesmerized by this incredible sight. Two hours after the first contact, an unidentified enemy has reached our coastlines in a swift and militaristic attack. Right now one thing is clear: The world is at war.

Very good!
7 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found it to be very intriguing and entertaining. I like the story line and thought that the story line was well thought out and well acted. The CG was good as well and the aliens looked really good. I also like how the action scenes were acted out, they literally put you in the heat of the battle. Thats why all of the action scenes were so shaky. I really liked that. It just puts you there and draws you in like you are a Marine in that squad. Thats my opinion anyway. I also thought that Sergeant Nantz was very legit in his performance and leadership. He was the kind of person that I would trust to the very end. I also really like the part towards the end when his squad continued to follow him, even though they had the chance to get to safety. A very dedicated squad if you ask me. Well Done, in my opinion.
