51 chronicles what happens after political pressure from the American public forces the Air Force to provide a few well-known reporters with limited access to the most secretive base on the planet: Area 51. When one of the base's hidden 'long term visitors' exploits this unprecedented visit as a chance to liberate himself and his fellow alien captives, Area 51 turns from a secure government base to a horrifying destination of terror.

I was actually interested in seeing 51 because I like movies with aliens in if they're done well. Sadly, 51 wasn't done well at all in my opinion. It is not the worst movie I've ever seen, but it is one of the laziest with its far from stylish or mood-enhancing editing and, with the rip offs of The Thing and Aliens, its unoriginality.
What also spoilt it for me was the complete lack of suspense and tension, it was just dull in the pace(the 90 minutes 51 is felt twice as long to me) and derivative in its execution instead. Add to that cheesy dialogue, shallow characters that I didn't give a toss about and some of the most phoned-in acting I've seen in a while, and you already have a bad movie.
And need I mention the unexciting and very predictable story in that I could smell how it was going to end a mile off, and clichés so many and so frequent that I could write a book on them? Overall, a lazy and dull mess. 1/10 Bethany Cox
