Blinded by the (formerly) not so bad rating, I decided to give it a chance.
At least it could have been some nice foreplay until "the one" with Keanu comes out. (pun intended) But it wasn't.
Where do I start ... bad BAD acting of almost everybody in the movie. Especially bad editing, sometimes there are cuts that have absolutely nothing to do with the current scene. Like near the beginning when you hear two people talking and at the same time see shots of people working silently on their computers. And don't get me started on the script.
Then there's the "logic factor" once again. 666 giant robots are landing on major cities on earth, yet there are NO people on the streets, no hysteria, not even simple curiosity. Everybody is rather calm, like this would happen every day. It's like we (the unfortunate viewers of the movie) get to see them, but nobody else, apart from the principal actors.
Like other people already mentioned, the superior aliens (in human form) are landing on earth. They have great powers and great knowledge. But a simple sedative knocks them out and an even simpler cell can hold them?
In general this *could* have been a nice variation on the original theme, that's why I gave it two instead of one points.
It may have been due to budget restrictions, or that they wanted to kick it out before the Keanu-movie. Either way, it did not do it any good.
As I said in the title: It's horrible in practically every way, don't waste your time on it.
Watch the original or wait for Keanu.
