Those expecting an action-packed science fiction extravaganza
like Independence Day or the original TV series of V will be hugely disappointed, this film plays out like a video game.
Marines run around Louisiana (dressed to look like Los
Angeles), blowing shit up like excerpts from metal gear solid.
No attention is paid to characterisation or believable
dialogue, leaving a cast of capable actors all at sea.
similar-themed film, Skyline, was released the same year, to weaker reviews, despite being a much better film.
