Half of this film is what you'd expect from the title, lots of booms, bangs and aliens. It's moronic but OK if you can turn your brain off.
However, near the end it becomes hilariously bad with the introduction of a series of obvious non-actors who are only there so people who love the military can get all misty eyed and salute whatever flag while overusing the word 'hero'.
The scene where these characters are introduced standing at the various points on the ship is one of the worst I can remember in a main-stream blockbuster. Presumably we were supposed to be in awe but all I could think of was how they A) Got up there and B) How they'd get back down without breaking a hip.
Oh and while I know it's pointless questioning these things in such a film but it seemed to me that all the aliens really needed was a couple of those spinny ball things. Job done.
