Spoiler: This film sucks.

Just saw this film.

What a load of rubbish.

It started quite promisingly, certainly had potential to be epic.

I loved the message that humans are wrecking the plaet, and that to save the Earth humans should be obliterated, but then the Amercianised crap came in and suddenly the American population were better than anyone else, the plot got all gay, and because the Alien saw a mother and her son hugging, that was a good enough excuse to save the planet??? Wtf?

Gah.

I thought it was okay, but definitely nothing special.

Jesus christ put a spoiler warning up

If I spoil the film, it will stop people who have seen it, from seeing it. Save them so money which they could be spending on important things... like... Food?

I saw the original one, and I rather liked it.


The ending sucked, but it wasn't bad.


I may watch the new one, though. Just to see how it changed.

I think Will Smiths son amongst many other stupid little things ruined the movie for me.

There is no point except party and be healthy and happy. Also money is not something to live for. If i didnt need money for drugs and beer i would give mine away.

It seemed decent, but I was worried it was gunna be environmentalist preachy bull****.

You basically confirmed my fears, and then some.
A socially acceptable nationalist/jangoist ending?
Hell no.
The entire world is ****ed up. No single country would save us from aliens on the basis of morality, especially the U.S.

And why the hell do aliens wanna save the earth?
