An alien invasion film that's surprisingly boring given the impressive fire-power behind it...

A good close combat fight in a film that's just okBy a customer from Topfield , 11 Mar 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]The trailer makes this film look like a big epic all out militery vs Alien war but it quickly boils down to a story of a group of marines fighting close combat with the Aliens while they are trying to rescue survivors.
The close combat fighting has been done well, the effects are good but overall the film is just ok.
There is some poor cringey dialogue between the marines and perhaps just too many characters introduced to you at the start that you forget who most of them are.
The story is simple and obvious but something was lacking. Maybe a bit of emotion, i did not care what happened to any of the characters really and again like skyline you want to know more about the Aliens. You also need a bit of a back story. Worth going to see but also worth just waiting for the dvd.

Pretty good actuallyBy JBourne (63 reviews) from Dorset , 09 Jul 2013I'm not really into war films but I enjoyed this film, I guess mainly because the enemy were alien forces and so were an unknown strength. Very cheesy in places and a very typical America saves the world - reminded me a bit of Independence Day. The action was great and I'm a big fan of Michelle Rodriguez, she rocks!
Slow Start. Good actionBy KarateRob (10 reviews) , 05 Jul 2013After a slow start this film got going. Not the most brilliant story but a pretty good film never the less. Good action film as the troops make their way accross LA fighting aliens.
Does what it says on the tinBy Bemmers (3 reviews) , 01 Jul 2013It is, as others have said, more of a war film than an alien film. Lots of shouting and running and stuff but ok if you like that kind of thing.
stilton cheeseBy CathedralCity (3 reviews) , 24 Jun 2013This film has all the cheesy lines and scenes you'd expect from a American war film, however like stilton, has some twists which makes the film surprisingly powerful.
Alien - tasticBy a customer , 24 Jun 2013Thoroughly enjoyed this, non stop action, great camera angles & effects, nice alien noises aswell !Its a feel good film as always when its the US of A versus the bad guys, but definitely worth a watch.
