Sony Pictures launched legal action against Greg Strause and Colin Strause and the owners of Hydraulx Films on the basis that the latter had been hired to provide the special effects for the similar Battle Los Angeles (2011). Sony claimed that Hydraulx had not informed it that the company was working on a competing project. The case was later dropped. See more »

Fun sci-fi/monster action. Not as bad as some people say it is!
The movie is an entertaining ride for the most part as long as you go into the movie prepared for something that will have no unique characters or a decent script. - I saw the movie fully expecting a bad script, characters I wouldn't like, no artful directing, and a plot that fails to do anything new or interesting. But I allowed myself to be entertained by it as a simple piece of sci-fi/monster action! This is what you must do if you go to see it!!
I was mostly inspired to do this review because I think the film doesn't deserve some of the really nasty 2/10 reviews I have seen.
Basically the aliens and each confrontation against them are generally exciting and save the film. Considering the film was made on quite a small budget they did a great job with the effects. I think fans of video games like the RESISTANCE series or HALF LIFE should be able to enjoy it a bit more than most.
A lot of people have been to harsh on this film, it is clear from the trailer this is just another alien invasion movie. Anyone who watches it expecting a modern sci-fi classic like District 9 will be disappointed - so don't do that.
Basically if you are unsure about seeing the film but enjoy sci-fi/monster movies for nothing but quick entertainment you should get something out of it.
