My Penny of View : Jarrod and Elaine were flying to Los Angeles to celebrate Terry's birthday and his success in his career. After wild celebration, all of them including Terry's girlfriend-Candice, his assistant-Denise and friend-Ray went to bed. Suddenly it was loud and weird sound in the middle of their sweet dreams. Then it was blue and bright lights all over the city. Jarrod walked out to the living room and saw Denise was screaming. It was because Ray has disappeared when he looked at the blue lights. Jarrod also attracted by the beautiful and blue lights. The lights made his eyes opaqued and burned the blood vessels in his body. Luckily Terry able to tackle him on time to prevent he disappeared like Ray. What exactly is the blue lights? Alien attack earth?

All the long we believe that there are other creatures are staying in other planets. So, the topic that alien attacks human is not a fresh and new issue anymore. What makes the audiences step into the cinema for this movie? I guess should be the effects and hope to get some surprises. Probably people are too free. The producer realized that the normal sequence of movie plots will not make the movie special. Therefore, the movie plots were in disordered sequences. This is something extraordinary but it makes me felt boring. I also can't feel the heart thrilling or nervous for the characters when the aliens attacked them. I impressed with the effects on the human face when they attracted by the skyline, it reminds me of the vampires in Vampire Diaries when they want to suck blood. Although I'm a human but I kinda admired the aliens in the movie. They sucked out human's brain to insert into their head, then only they can function. They also have immortal body, just change the brain like change battery. Sometimes the alien looks so fragile but sometimes they are made by metal. Again octopus became one of the attraction of the movie. The ending was kinda baffling.

Rating :
