I rate this film: 4 out of 5
I went to see this movie with my wife, in the evening after finishing at work for the day – I wasn’t expecting much and thought the worst case I’ll just fall asleep and have a snooze in my seat, if it didn’t grab my interest.
I read some reviews and the ratings weren’t that impressive 2 stars out of 5. So I didn’t expect much.
The first 20 minutes were boring and I almost fell a sleep – just like I thought I would! Then there’s a football scene that looked like a match being played by a pub team…?
As the movie progressed it did get a little more interesting, however one thing that I wasn’t convinced by, was the alien ‘borrowing’ an Earth satellite to communicate to their home planet – just didn’t make sense or ring ‘true’ to me.It did have plenty of action, explosions, technology and some space tech too, all of which tick my action adventure boxes for this sort of film and for that I say go and watch it, and for that I give it 4 out of 5.
When the movie started, I did think to myself ‘…this looks like is going to be sh**’.
I would just like to say its 10 times better then The Hunger Games, The Hunger Games was so boring, see my review on that film for my thoughts on that rubbish!
