A unique take on a common plot, excellent photography courtesy the cooperation of the US navy, quick and believable dialogue, excellent effects, an excellent soundtrack and the final battleship payoff combine to make a re-watchable film.
Allot of things don't make sense in this story either! Sending a message across the galaxy in order to seek life? Don't you realize that there might be hostile aliens, and you can't just assume that they could be friendly? Ever think about that Mr. Scientist!?
As for sex appeal, Brooklyn Decker is hot, can't deny that, but her romance with our protagonist Stone, felt forced and they shared zero chemistry, and only love each other because of their looks! Ugh! She had no character whatsoever, because she was just eye candy, that's it!
As for Liam Neeson, he was alright, but his role wasn't enough to make this film good!
This could have been so much better than it turned out to be! I think that I would stick to the film "Real Steel". For this? PASS!
of good Navy action and has a great ending. Appropriate Friday Night family movie after the game with a pizza. Don't listen to the stuck up snob critics who think "everything has to be award winning to watch". Just get ya a pizza, some popcorn, a 2 liter and have a great time watching with your family.
