The takeover of planet Earth has begun as our the five friends struggle to survive amid the chaos and calamity. Will love survive the terror? Written by
OK, what the hell did I just watch? What is this crap?
Those who gave it high score, were on drugs. This movie doesn't deserve more than 1. It makes school plays I was on elementary school seem Star Wars-level compared to this.
So, it's about UFO invasion on England............. and it's not about UFO invasion. Seriously, the beginning is TERRIBLE: we see a bunch of people being in a club drinking, dancing etc. and then going to home and having sex, while there is an implication about UFO.
The acting was bad, the script is terrible, the dialogues are badly-written and badly-executed from the actors, who are very unlikeable and pretty much the whole thing is a big mess and I couldn't stand the directing and the camera shots, being all moving and making me feel dizzy. And how in the unholy name of the Great Old Ones did Van Damme got himself into this mess? Really slow time 'till the next Expendables, hmmmmmmm, monsieur JC?
I could say that this is close to "The Room" in terms of awfulness, but with "The Room" you can a crapload of laughter from its awfulness and make jokes about it. But this doesn't even make you laugh. It makes you sick and disgusted from you see. This is one of those moments that movie piracy can save you and your money.
Also, to the people who say that Sci-Fi doesn't need very good visuals and CGI and such: yes, you need them. Not Cameron's Avatar-level, mind you, but Sci-Fi is a genre that DEPENDS on good visuals. This isn't the 60s anymore where you had cheap-looking costumes and plastic masks and gloves and call it an alien. I remember renting a movie with friends from the video store, after university, called Alien Raiders. And even though that movie is bad, it has some entertainment value that is good to watch with friends, with pizza and Coca-Cola and make fun of it. This one makes you stop the movie and watch Mars Attack!, War of the Worlds (not the stupid Spielberg one), the old V, The Thing, Final Fantasy The Spirits Within and have more fun.
This one doesn't deserve to be downloaded via torrents at all.
