The beginning of the film is supposed to be set in Northern Ohio, within a few miles of Lake Erie. However, with a few minor exceptions close to Cleveland, the Lake Erie coastline is lightly forested and mostly flat. The wooded parks and hills shown exist much farther inland than a tsunami could reach. Lake Erie is also the shallowest of the Great Lakes. See more »
Wow. Yet another steaming pile of Hollywood garbage filled with thin white "good looking" people instead of actors.
If it weren't for some huge writing flaws like gaping holes in logic, super flimsy character development, completely unnecessary romantic "tension" crowbarred-in and the aforementioned models-where-actors-should-be trope, the idea and story could have been pretty cool.
I was actually looking forward to seeing this movie, but honestly just had to force myself through from about the half hour mark.
Adding insult to injury is the very obvious set up for what the film makers are most likely hoping will be two or more sequels.
Twilight, but aliens. Not even cool or scary aliens. Just lame, romantic aliens. Or incognito aliens. Huge yawn.
