Where do I start? Hmm.. Disappointment. Yes that’s where. I haven’t been this disappointed in a movie since Prometheus and even then Prometheus wins in this race hands down. If I seem a bit negative towards this movies, that’s because I am, save yourself the 2 hours of tedium. I was totally looking forward to this movie, I thought kick arse! Action Sci-Fi, No…no no….What’s the opposite of that? That’s right! Shit.
In my comments on this movie there may be a few “spoilers”, but in all honesty there is nothing I could say that can spoil this movie. It’s happy doing that all by itself.
Let me give you the premise of the movie.?”One of the few remaining drone repairmen assigned to Earth, its surface devastated after decades of war with the alien Scavs, discovers a crashed spacecraft with contents that bring into question everything he believed about the war, and may even put the fate of mankind in his hands.” Written by Black Dahlia
The “aliens” that you think live on earth…. Aren’t aliens they’re human. The Aliens that you think they have the war with aren’t aliens. It’s a big red friggen eye in space. They don’t go anywhere cool. The best part of the movie is him taking off in his “Helicopter” backward over the edge, which get’s done too many times. Now I don’t want to waste any more time on this movie, it doesn’t deserve it. But! I’ll give you a few thoughts to think of after you watch this movie.
Why are there 2 seats in the “helicopter” if she’s not allowed in the friggen thing?? How does he attach the sleep pod to the underneath of the helicopter? That shit’s a 2 man job at least!?Who builds the house??If the big red eye has drones to build the power plants why wouldn’t he have drones to repair them??????Why does the big red eye need them??Who built the big red eye??On the inside of the alien space ship, who takes care of stuff? Surely the big red eye needs minions??
I can keep going forever, but I will leave with this last thought.
Why oh Why can’t they just make a simple kick arse Sci-Fi movie? It’s simple, don’t try and make it thought provoking! Just Guns, bombs, aliens and war.
