Going in I wasn't expecting much, but this may well be the best rock crashing into Earth movie I've seen. This writer and director know it's not about jingoism or heroics or over the top nonsense. It's about fear. Trying to make sure your family and loved ones are safe. It's a good well made B movie. Kudos.
This may have been the movie that drew me to the film industry. I was a young kid. My parents were watching it on VHS. I didn't care for nor understand the romance at the time, but the music by John Barry and Mozart's Clarinet Concerto, and the staggering cinematography by David Watkin ASC struck me deep. Both won Oscars. It showed me Kenya in such an impactful way that I would end up there for work years later.
