The gray shirt worn by detective Ben Walls (Clayne Crawford) throughout the film bears the word "Veritas" in large letters between "Klatoo" and "Niktoo." Veritas is the Latin word for Truth. In Roman mythology it was the name given to the goddess of truth. The other two words were derived from "Klaatu barada nikto," the words Helen Benson (Patricia Neal) must say to Gort the robot in the classic 1951 film "The Day the Earth Stood Still." See more »
After been has been chased through the stairwell by the entities, he meets up with Ester, Isaac, and Captain Miller. After a discussion, he loads a magazine into a pistol and hands it to Isaac who then chambers a round. The next scene is a long shot of Isaac again chambering a round in his pistol. If he had, in fact, inadvertently chambered a round twice, there should have been a distinct sound of a full cartridge hitting the floor. See more »
I watched this, basically as the idea (and some other reviews) intrigued me - not sure if it warranted such a low score; but I wouldn't have raised it by much (maybe a 5.0/5.5). The general idea behind it is pretty good, but would probably have made a better book than a film; and here lies the problem.
Not enough is left to the psychological imagination - everything is very 'full on' to the point I wasn't sure if I was watching an action, thriller, horror or sci-fi movie. You get a bit of everything thrown at you, and sadly it gets a bit tedious and confusing after a while.
The storyline could have been conveyed so much better without the 'hey ho' attitudes and rough and tumble action scenes - they just weren't needed. All these did for me was take me away from the essence of the movie until I completely lost track of what it was all about.
Movie takes an interesting turn towards the end - something which I would have liked to have seen incorporated earlier, as unfortunately I had started to lose interest by this stage.
Verdict: if you've absolutely nothing else to watch, give it a go. It's not a complete waste of time; but it will more than likely be easily forgotten. 5/10
