    I`m not impressed yet. I expect lots of lame `startle` scares, goofy scientific theories, and a nonsensical surprise ending. However, it might be ok if you want an hour and a half of pretty pictures to look at.

    Lemme tell you the end of the movie: All but two of the people in the group (one male, one female) survive. They were lovers from the beginning of the movie. They single-handedly defeat all of the "aliens" or are able to reach others to tell them how to do the same.

    C`mon Hollywood. Lets get some substance in these films. Tired of Big production poo-in-a-bag then force feed to the public films. We get this, sequels and super-heroes. =\

    So let me get this straight. It consumes energy (living beings), while simultaneously radiating even more energy (lighting up light bulbs).

    So why doesn`t it just consume the energy it`s radiating in order to become a perpetual mechanism.

    And besides, if they really wanted to use us for energy, they would keep us alive. Once a human is dead, they no longer produce energy. They should just harvest us.

    Like I said... Lame!

    Alien invasion, mass slaughter, plucky humans fighting back and winning at the zero hour. I think I`ve seen this movie already.

    RobSwindol, you`re finding flaws in the logic of a movie about invisible lightning aliens. Seems kind of pointless. That being said, Bekmambetov is pretty cool, so I`ll probably see this.

    I hate the whole premise where "We`re just a bunch of 20 year olds that are in our 20`s partying! WHOO!" then it turns into, "We`re stuck in this terrifying situation, but we`ll make it out because we have each other and can overcome anything!"

    You ever see a trailer that renders actually watching the movie completely useless as you already know what`s happened, going to happen and happens last.

    Personally my mind can fill in the blanks, while this is a movie i would normally like, I`ve pretty much just watched the whole thing in this trailer.

    Anyone ever wonder what it is about Earth`s atmosphere that makes super intelligent beings capable of traveling vast distances turn into nothing more than rabid animals once they enter the atmosphere?

    Suppose this explains politicians though.

    If aliens want to be hostile toward us... since they managed to get here, we`d pretty much get wiped out effortlessly.

    So the whole world has died, except the five of them? Six? However many there were... Where are all the other people? It would be a much better movie if there was some sort of growing people`s army.

    That`s like saying why don`t people eat their own poo - we produce organic materials after eating organic materials... Maybe it`s the same for the aliens - they are inefficient at energy utilization

    And it didn`t say they were eating people for their energy, just to exterminate all life AFTER robbing us of all electricity...

    I agree. Why can`t we have movies about nice aliens. However I have to laugh as suddenly we are in the "everyone has disappeared from the face of the earth" fad.
