While the girls are talking to Travis, one of them puts on a helmet, presumably from his military service. The helmet shown is shaped like a modern Kevlar helmet, where the brim dips near the ears. If Travis was in Vietnam, his helmet would have been the old "steel pot" , with a straighter brim. See more »
The Vicious Brothers (as the directorial team call themselves) try breaking the mold, with some mixed results.
The bulk of this is typical horror mixed with typical alien/saucer imagery. About an hour or so in, there's a Matrix-inspired sequence that at least looks authentic. The film caps off with a very X-Files routine. Cliché characters, one of whom seems to have been awkwardly transplanted from an '80s teen horror film, and all of whom play out cliché melodrama during very obvious and convenient breaks in action, didn't really help things.
With some skill, this mash-up of recycled elements could have actually worked, maybe. The visual effects were convincing, but the rest (writing, direction, acting) were frightfully amateurish.
This isn't a "found footage" film, but it seems to want to be one. It's sort of a found footage film that simply wasn't shot that way, resulting in something rather awkward.
