What can I say is 9 for the trailer and 4 for the movie. I have to give the intriguing trailer a big round of applause. If you have seen the trailer before, I can guarantee that you will be so bloody curious to watch the movie itself (exactly what happened to ”Clash of the Titans” earlier thiz year). They edited the trailer so well. But the fact is something so wrong is going on. Next thing I can say is A-Class Special Effects collides with C-Class Actors. The movie is directed by Special Effects experts, Colin and Greg Strause who also directed “AVPR: Aliens VS. Predator-Requiem” (2007). The premise is mysterious at the beginning, one night at 4:27 AM blue strange beams appear on the City of Los Angeles. It is the first initial of the extraterrestrial invasion. The storyline only follows one point of view (just like “Cloverfield” in 2008). The movie is focus on a group of people. They are Eric Balfour, Scottie Thompson, Donald Faison, David Zayas and others. There is a scene that I think it is a rip-off from “War of the Worlds” (2005), when Terry meets a stranger and then a group of aliens sneak around to hunt them with its long and creepy tentacles. The last thing I can say is the sky is wreck and the line is flat. Approaching the end of the movie, the storytelling becomes more and more poignantly absurd. For example (Spoiler Alert!), the octopus look-alike alien which could chase and destroy jet aircraft and even sophisticated Stealth fighter jet, can be easily defeated only by an ax! Strause brothers are really getting into on my nerves, while they underestimate our intelligence with their absurd story. Unfortunately, there are several of them. However, there is something that you may not realize. Everyone and most critics think that thiz movie is a monstrous failure, but what you might do not realize that thiz movie was only made by $10 million budget. The fact is they make some real money here. The tagline on thiz movie is “Don’t look up.” well, don’t even look at the film itself. Next time if aliens invade the theaters like thiz again, I will rather go home and sleep on my bed. Don’t waste 92 minutes of your life!
