An intense battle is fought on sea, land and air. If they lose, the world could face a major extinction event and an alien invasion. Will humans win this alien war, what are the aliens doing here, and what do they want?
Although the movie never comes out and says it, Alex Hopper was enlisted in the Navy before he became an officer. The movie gives clues to it, as one of Hopper's warfare device on his uniform is silver, and in several scenes, a tattoo of a "Mustang" can be seen on his right forearm. A Mustang is a term used for officers that are prior enlistees. He is also seen wearing the Good Conduct Medal on his Navy Whites. This medal is only awarded to enlisted sailors. See more »

I don't care what the hatters think. To me a movie is supposed to entertain you. This movie for me is very entertaining. Is it the best movie ever made...not by a long shot but it has what it takes to keep you paying attention. It was a fun movie to watch and I actually find myself watching it everything it's on. It is on my same list as Armageddon, Deep Impact, Independence Day and Dawn of the Dead.... Just pure entertainment. And what is even more admirable about this movie is that it used actually military as extras and wounded warriors as extras as well. Any movie that honors our veterans and includes them is definitely a movie that I will love.
SO THERE! HA!
