I came home after seeing this with my son and told my wife everything that you just read below. My in-laws love 'artsy academy award' movies and I love a good sci-fi. So I am no movie snob, but , This movie reeked bad! The last hour I was rooting for the aliens to eat the bad actors. I even stayed to the end to see who directed this directionless crap. The brothers Strause. Shame on you. Stick to effects and let someone else direct.
