This movie was so close to the so bad that it is good category that it’s unbelievable… The only thing that saved it was a big budget, and the fact that it’s about an alien invasion, and those are the only two elements that I found interesting and worth watching. The script is an altered version of a Black Hawk Down, and I could already see the money hungry studio execs rolling in piles of cash and thinking how they could make more. Because 80 million is not enough… Lets take the plot of Black Hawk and just throw aliens in there, and this sentence is the entire plot of the movie…

Sgt. Michael Nantz, suffering from Danny Glover – Lethal Weapon syndrome (only a few days to retirement), is suddenly thrown into a flaming streets of Los Angeles fighting dumb alien invaders. I cannot to begin to describe the level of stupidity and just pure dumbness of screenplay and story. The aliens came to Earth masked as meteors, but immediately after they touched down they started the war, destroying the element of surprise and the whole need for mask. Although they have high tech weapons and ships, they decide to deploy ground troops, poorly armored and pretty dumb. They hide the mothership in the sewer of the Los Angeles, and of course, if you blow up the one and only mothership with one rocket, they will leave in a fashion that leaves enough room for part two. I think that only fringe science fiction (who would watch anything with aliens, me included) and army fans will enjoy in this incredibly stupid plot. I think that I have never seen aliens that are so dumb… And fuck it, I am moving this movie to another section, it’s so bad that you have to see it. Round up a couple of friends and make fun of this piece of shit, at least you will find it funny…
