What a huge disappointment this movie was. Spaceships land on earth, nothing else happens and somehow the big question is are they friendly or hostile. The Aliens did remind me of Space Invaders which was fun. Fun thinking back at Space Invaders…
I’m not sure why the Chinese are labeled as the aggressive and impatient. On one hand it was a gift that due the Chinese possible attack on the friendly aliens there was a sort of deadline in the movie script. I checked two times during the movie how much time was still remaining, not a good sign.
Metascore of 81? Unbelievable. The movie is very slow-paced and reflecting back almost nothing happened during 116 minutes. The humans learn to decode the language, the message was aliens helps humans, humans help aliens later. Help with what? How? Why do they need help? None of these questions are answered or slightly worked out.
Not what i hoped after seeing the poster and trailer.
