    Plot, acting, dialogue...EVERYTHING fails in this movie. The relationships between the characters aren\'t developed, the dialogue is ridiculous, the plot is boring, and the ending doesn\'t even make sense.

    One of the recurrent scifi themes is alien invasion. After that there is usually a human guerilla opposition that somehow finds a way... Think War of the Worlds, Independence Day, Battle: Los Angeles, etc. but then give it a hugely dark spin with a \"60\'s\" ending. I watched this as a free rental and would never sit through it again. Ture, the various elements had moments of promise but the main characters kept being replaced. Oh, well...
