    Alien Invasion resistence film


    Looks decent enough. Needs a longer trailer and more detail though.

    Looks good, and very similar to the (recently cancelled) TV show 'Colony'. Wonder if the final film will remain this ambiguous though.

    12th April this coming week supposedly, although I've heard very little about it.

    I vaguely remember seeing a review saying it wasn't great. Can't remember much of the detail though

    Gave it a watch. Decent Resistance Science Fiction!

    Good performances from John Goodman and Vera Farmiga
    the future is yours kid

    I thought it was a more miss than hit, to be honest.

    It's basically a film version of the TV show 'Colony', but it just sort of plods along without ever being truly compelling or engaging.

    Not terrible, but could've been executed much better.

    Nooooooh! I really liked that low-budget-but-much-better-than-Falling-Skies-alien.invasion-resistance show.
    Seriously- I thought it was a great show for such a low-budget production.

    I really enjoyed this movie. Could see the surprise coming a mile off but thought it was still very good.

    I’d say a lack of action (practically none) has put off its target audience. Also the low reviews (harsh IMO) prob put people off. A solid sc fi flick but more based on the human side of it.
