The Brothers Strause claimed that this was just the first in a series. The film's lackluster box-office performance suggests otherwise. See more »

Goofs

After a nuclear explosion downs the alien ship, moments later we see the overhead view of two choppers over the city, and not a single sight of damage over what should be rubble and not a city. See more »

not as bad as these posts claim...
17 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One lesson I've learned is to not read online reviews before I go see a film as I did not find this movie to be half as bad as the people on this site claim. After reading that this movie was not even worth renting and that it was the worst film ever made and then seeing it, I didn't think it came close to any of those opinions.

It was far from perfect, but as far as entertainment value I was satisfied. It kept up a good pace with semi-interesting twists and turns. I even found myself to be holding onto my seat at times wondering what was gonna happen next.

This movie was 10 times better than something like Sex and The City part 2 or Eat, Pray, Love. I suggest checking it out for yourself and not listening to the scathing reviews on this site.
