Trivia

After the film's announcement (and even more so after its release) Hasbro toy sales declined, even reaching dangerously low numbers by the 2012 holiday season, a common urban legend is the film made the company so universally hated that people gave up buying Hasbro brand products as a punishment for allowing the film to be made with the hope of bankrupting them to prevent anymore movies based on their toys, in truth while some decline in Hasbro toy sales was attributed to the film's negative reception, the real cause of the low sales was the ongoing economic slump and the US economy suffering a relapse in 2012.

remarkably stupid - wasted potential.
24 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's a shame that this movie was so dumb. Had the script been written by an adult, this could've been a blockbuster.

The aliens are so dumb that it's implausible. How can any species achieve space travel yet lose to inferior human adversaries.

Decent cast, excellent effects, serviceable directing, and a big budget all squandered on a horrifically bad script. It's so bad it hurts my head.

I'm extremely surprised any executive would green light such inexcusably poor writing. Hmm...maybe it was the executive's child who wrote it. That would explain many Hollywood films actually.
