Critic Review - Chicago Tribune

In this summer of gargantuan mediocrities, a modestly budgeted project with an actual idea in its head, and the wiles to manifest it onscreen, exploding heads and all -- that's something.

I really liked this review, though I was intrigued more with the alien (Christopher) and his son more than I was with the humans. It felt more like the human story was merely in place to put the aliens story into perspective.

But anyway, good review.

Great review, but I thought Copley was casted quite well. His transformation from being a coward into a sort of hero for the alien race was well done.

i thought copely did a great job considering its his first starring role. this could very well be the begining of a franchise that could get better and better. just keep a low budget, dont go crazy. to much money = disaster for most up and coming directors. district 10 cant come soon enough!
