Boring...skies
20 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After all the build-up, this was a disappointment. No suspense, no thrills/chills, little action, just a lot of talking, talking, talking and more talking. And was ...Boring !!

Started without alien Invasion and just went straight to the story. Not what I have expected from director(s) like Steven Spielberg. Too much talking and less action.I think War of the worlds and Walking dead did a better job of post apocalyptic survival and was far better than this one.

On one side: The aliens, green, six-legged and known as Skitters. They have an army of bi-pedal robots armed with obligatory death rays that ruthlessly mow down any adult or child in their path. Teens are taken hostage to be rendered dead-eyed and compliant by nasty lobster-tail-like harnesses attached to their spines.

On the other: the Massachusetts 2nd, led by the tough but just Weaver (Will Patton) with Tom Mason (Noah Wyle) as his overly learned but still manly second in command, with pediatrician Anne Glass (Moon Bloodgood) providing medical assistance and humanism. Mason is our point man, a history professor with an expertise in the military, which enables him to lead Recon groups and make stirring comparisons to other oppressed but triumphant people.

I guess a press kit can buy good reviews.
