The acting, dialogue, music, action, and special effects are good. But the plot logic doesn't make any sense. Here's where it all went in the toilet for me.
- The daughter tells the father in the future, she can figure out the toxin that will kill the aliens. But he will have to take it back to the past to mass produce it, so he can prevent the alien war from ever happening. But he says no because that would mean he would have to leave her in the future to die.
So ?? He would rather watch his daughter die in the future --- than go back to the past, and save his daughter's life --- and all of humanity ?? Stupid.
- Anyway --- against his will, he goes back to the past --- and what do you know, his daughter is still alive. He and his wife try to figure out when and where the aliens arrive. It doesn't make any difference now. They now have the toxin to kill them when or wherever they arrive.
- They go to some government guy (I think it's the president) and explain the situation. And the government guy basically says he cannot justify spending taxpayer money on saving humanity. Even though society is falling apart worldwide because everybody believes aliens will end humanity in 30 years. I personally cannot think of a better use of taxpayer money.
And then he states as one of the reasons, the Russians have closed their airspace. Uuhh, I think the Russians would be willing to cooperate with a mission to possibly save all of humanity.
- How easy is it to fly a privately funded cargo plane full of weapons and soldiers into Russia, blow up an alien spacecraft, kill the aliens, and fly out undetected? Well they do it.
I amost turned it off right there. But fortunately the final action scenes were good.
- Common stupid scifi movie trope - all the military ever uses against the aliens is pistols and machine guns with marginal effectiveness. The military has bigger weapons than pistols and machine guns. If pistols and machine guns are marginally effective, bigger more powerful weapons would be more effective.
I give it a 10 for the acting, action, dialogue, special effects, and music. And a 0 for the plot logic. Halfway between 10 and 0 is 5. But the acting, action, dialogue, special effects and music were so good, I'll give it a 6.
Did you see it?
