The only honest moment comes late in the piece, when a bunch of teenagers at a party - running to see some alien voodoo magic, or something - desperately try to hold their beer cups in front of them so they don't spill the contents.
The script has zero curiosity about any of these characters and their motivations. Why are they here? What are their powers, exactly? If kids just past puberty are such lethal fighters, how did the whole race of them get wiped out?
A shallow, cynical bit of movie-making, certainly never boring but rarely engaging on either an intellectual or visceral level. The cast of mostly twentysomethings posing as teenagers does an awful lot of pouting and strutting.
