A disgrace, 7 June 2015
Author: rlange-3 from United States

Why is one of the leaders of a Canadian infantry squad wearing an Arafat kifaya scarf? He even pulls it over his face every time combat starts, as if he is afraid the aliens might take his picture and put it on the internet.

The squad actually decides to just abandon a moderately wounded sergeant because "ya can't save everyone" and he "might slow us down". Worse, despite the script, they don't seem to be in much of a hurry.

Others have commented on the misleading cover, poor acting, and shallow plot. This movie stinks.

That's a shame because I love the "Earth invaded" genre, and there are some potentially creative plot elements including a mysterious alien pod. But that's not enough to overcome the shallowness and boredom.
