Megan's Movie Review:
I heard a few different things from people about this movie and it was mainly that everyone didn't like this movie. They said that there wasn't enough alien in the movie. Really? How much more freaking alien did you want?! I went into this movie expecting to not ever see the alien. But maybe it's because I saw skyline and you don't see the alien very much in that movie and then watching this movie you see them all the time. And by the way, this movie was cool! Super action packed alien war movie. Tons of fighting and the fighting scenes were good too! I really, really liked this movie. I don't know how people didn't like it or said that there wasn't enough "alien" in the movie. I also liked how this movie ended. Yes, they didn't save the world, they just saved their city, but at least it showed you how they would be able to save the world. I also liked how the aliens didn't die because of the oxygen like War of the Worlds. They actually had to kill the aliens. It makes it a challenge and they won! Well..they won Los Angeles. If you like aliens and if you like action packed movies, you most likely will like this.

Alien fans?

I thought this movie was freaking horrible. Lets save LA. LA blows. And you could have replaced alien with advanced north korea and it wouldnt have mattered. It was like a long ad for the the ones that play before the movie.

I really liked this movie a lot. Mike is right, you could replace the aliens with humans and the story really wouldn't have changed but I kinda liked that. I thought it make it seem a little more realistic because there weren't a bunch or crazy lasers all over the place. Over all I really like the movie and would recommend seeing it.
