Good old fashion popcorn fun!
10 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First I must say that I LOVE Sci Fi movies always have always will! This was a very low budget film for an Sci Fi budget 10 Million I believe. Still it felt big to me.... I was surprised at how tense I felt!!! The aliens are downright scary not just ugly,

As far as the actors I thought Eric Balfour as Jarrod was a really sexy believable 20 something leading man. I enjoyed that he was not so quick to be the hero he was scared just like most of us would be if our planet were being attacked! Donald Faison has a knack for comedic timing which is very important for such a intense movie. The women were beautiful which every guy will appreciate and I also liked the story line between Jarrod and Elaine played by Scottie Thompson I only wished we would have gotten to know all the characters a little better.

The ending was different from any alien attack movie I have EVER seen! Cool!!! As a whole the script could use some tightening but the effects are well worth the price of admission the actors were fun and believable. I thought it was good popcorn movie. If you like Sci Fi or action you won't be disappointed!
