Cast / crew
As several meteorites containing identical objects crash to Earth at the same time off the coast of the world’s highest population centres, the military scramble to combat what is clearly an orchestrated invasion. But when your opponents are so technologically advanced as to invade from outer space, what can man do to stop them?
Agreeable attempt to produce a serious, focused, straight-forward military movie where the enemy just happen to be aliens. However, this produces a struggle between the Hollywood alien invasion (they invade the whole earth at once, have a simplistic motivation and get defeated simplistically and everything must explode with a giant fireball but no splash damage) and the realistic combat (every character is given a role, rank and full name – most unusual – and they even, occasionally, reload… with giant fireball ordnance). Additionally, the contemporary editing style removes all shape, story and sense of space from the action. The overall effect is thrilling enough but not memorable or distinct.
This movie contains a single sexual swear word, mild swear words, crude innuendo and war violence, unpleasant and slightly gory scenes.
