ZEDD'S OPINION:

The end of the world is at hand and nobody cares, at least that what it seems in this movie. I'm not one for the conspiracy movie but this has some great effects, great story and a great sense that maybe aliens might be behind global warming. So I highly recommend this movie. 9 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree with Zedd on this, if you haven't seen this movie then you don't know what you're missing. I highly recommend this movie to any one who loves a good alien invasion movie. 9 STARS as well.

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ POSSIBLE STORY (I wouldn't be a bit surprised that aliens are behind global warming.)
+ CHARACTERS (The characters work.)
+ CAST (The cast does a great job.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- MINOR CHARACTER ISSUES (Nothing big, just some of the characters got annoying at times.)
- ONE STEP AHEAD (The one thing I hate about conspiracy movies is the conspirators are always one step ahead of the good guys.)

...AND FINALLY...

- FAN BASED (If you aren't big on conspiracy or alien movies, then this isn't the movie for you.)
