i download and just watch this movie yesterday.
My Penny of View : Alex was a young man that has no life goal. He met Samantha during his birthday and his brother, Stone forced him to join the US Navy. During an international training exercise, the crews found a mystery object stayed in the middle of ocean but the radar can't sense the existence. Alex and others went to investigate the object and accidentally activate the protection system. What exactly is the mysterious object? What are they going to encounter?
First of all, the first part of Alex's life is kinda draggy and unnecessary. The movie should focus on more the battle between human and alien. The battle scenes are exciting, good effects, humor and interesting especially when the retired US Navy joined the battle. They seems like the hero to save the world. As usual, alien can't survive on earth and this alien afraid of sunlight but they always have advance technology. Taylor Kitsch is quite suitable for action movie since John Carter. Brooklyn Decker possesses sexy and smart character, she can be the next Transformer babe. Big claps to Rihanna, she did her role pretty well and she has potential to become a successful actress. One more tips if you intend to watch this movie-Don't watch the trailer before the movie.
Rating : ★★★★☆
