Another alien invasion movie, this time it’s based on a 1951 classic.day_the_earth_stood_still_ver4 Keanu Reeves did a good job portraying senseless and rational alien messenger (his I’ve got nothing in my head look this time payed off, for the first time since Bill and Ted). I just can`t figure out what are Jennifer Connelly and John Cleese are doing in this classic blockbuster… Although commercialization is clearly visible here, for a lazy Sunday flick it is pretty much interesting, especially if you like aliens and other stuff. Excellent production values, ok story make an ok remake, very watchable. Enjoy.

Director: Scott Derrickson

Cast: Keanu Reeves, Jennifer Connelly, Kathy Bates, John Cleese

Fun Stuff: Keanu Reeves was producer Erwin Stoff’s first and only choice for the role of Klaatu. The bridge under which our heroes shelter during the finale is the same bridge sheltered under by the heroes of Cloverfield (2008) in that film’s finale.
