Holy crap, this was crappier then the crappiest crap I've ever seen. Well, not crappier than "Skyline", but certainly not far from it! The only good thing about this movie, is the music. James Newton Howard NEVER disappoints. The fact that he managed to compose such an amazing score to such a crappy movie, really shows his genious as a composer. Mr. Howard, I bow to you.
It amazes me anyone can like or defend such an incompetently made film. I've seen worse, but not any I can think of from such a high-profile and once-praised director.
There seems to be some decent stuff tucked away in there, but it's buried by woefully-written dialogue, a lack of basic storytelling skill (has no one told Shyamalan "show don't tell"?) and an ill-explained world. The pacing is shot as well -- it feels like a season of TV someone chopped away at to make it fit 90 minutes, and like they did a clumsy job of it too.
And then there's a cliffhanger too! I do wish films that have no certainty of getting a sequel would stop ending on such blatant setups -- they usually fail to generate enough interest to justify a follow-up (see: Eragon, Golden Compass, etc).
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
