I saw it and I rate it about 3/5. It was alright but they went overboard a bit too much on special effects. It was watchable though for sure.

I just saw the movie and I think it is nicely made. Newer movies tend to have darker atmosphere in them rather than being make-up wonders.
The movie carries a strong message that comes from civilizations that are not humans, are more sophisticated than us and watching us as we are destroying this planet. In contrast of previous beefed-up Hollywood production movies where human heroes rescue the world when disaster strikes, in this movie the hero is actually alien being. The advanced alien form of intelligence comes to the planet on order to save the Earth. Wealth of organism life on Earth can only be preserved if humans are extinct, cause humans are destroying the planet. But somewhere along the line alien is starting to realize that people can change when the disaster strikes so it undo the extinction process.
This movie carries a good and simple message - if we do not stop to exploit the Earth our dooms day will come eventually. Technology that we own can help us solve the problems and we are entering a new age where it will be capable either of destroying ourselves, but never the Earth, or evolving us into smarter intelligent form of life that can carry on life on this planet. In the end of the movie the time symbolically stops, and this marks the beginning of a new age for human race. Age of global awareness for evolution of life, not destruction of life should arrive soon, and as Keanu Reeves nicely say in the movie: "There's nothing that we can do".

I like the meaning and story behind it hence the 3/5. Just the special effects were too much. Do others agree or do you think the special effects were needed to such a level?

I will wait for the DVD. The movie is based on the hoax that is Global Warming/Climate Change. Follow the money, just like everything else.

This is a "remake"

The original was almost nothing like this one... basically a guy shows up from outer space, and he looks human... thats about all they have in common...

and I heard that while the movie has a decent message, it is very slow paced... probably not good for people with short attention spans like me laugh.gif

I still have a hard time believing that Al Gore got a Nobel Peace prize for pushing that nonsense.

The Original was one of the greatest Sci-Fi movies EVER. This one cant compare.

I had no Idea that they remade this movie, this is the new thing, just remaking movies. Most times even though cinematography and special effects have improved, the originals have a better plot. Haven't seen this one, but I think I will wait until it comes out on dvd

I liked some special FX in the movie, they came up for some pretty unusual stuff, like the interrogation scene, that was great stuff, never saw that coming, but I think the big robot figure was bad. I understand the symbolics of the big nano-robot, but they kinda made him too "lame".
I think the movie has a lot of that "military hollywood action" and this is what I don't like too much. Although US is trying to push their military propaganda through this movie as well, I can't help noticing that they are actually playing the negative role in their own Hollywood production movie. Can this be true? unsure.gif

The original is based on the cold war,and the alien has came here to stop us killing the earth with nuclear war.
This remake is just set in the modern age.

Do we kill our planet?Yes,we are.It is not for this dissucion at all,to much material.smile.gif
