Exactly how NOT to handle First Contact
AVOID. Film is horrible. YES, great effects. YES, we win. YES, watch the movie (for free if possible) it has some great lessons how NOT TO MAKE movie.
Basically, what you can see in trailers - we contacted someone in outerspace, they came, and then, out of trailers, we fantastically f*** up First Contact. And after that we continued to made very bad decisions, of course explained by some very bad propaganda trying to persuade us that we are good guys. exactly how NOT TO conduct First Contact.
We had some peaceful visitors, met by army and after our very unreasonable moves, they were responding to some very unfriendly moves on our part with very limited force. All that marred with accident when one of their vessels crashed, unfortunately killing some people (all aliens aboard, of course unmentioned because it would show how lame story is). We missed to recognize that repeatedly on numerous occasions, throughout entire movie, espetialy in the first hours of encounter. But, you can see on their visors in the begging how they marked us - "green" as friendly, "red" as POTENTIAL (but not necessarily) enemy. Unfortunately, even things that they marked "green" or not attacking them have shown their real face (what else do you expect from military) and attacked them. One thing leading to another we ended in "war" with their scouts. Even they haven't fought, and ALWAYS responding to threat, we saw them as "evil" and needed to destroy all of visiting party. Of course we won it, by using their "weakness" which is actually "do not attack anything but defend from immediate threats"... We acted like beasts we are... Imagine what their attack party would look like, or even what would happen if this "scout" party's intent was to destroy/conquer us... We wouldn't have a chance.
Lame navy propaganda movie... AVOID.
