I loved this movie. I wasn't excited at the beginning to watch something about aliens thinking that it wouldn't be a 'scary movie' but then it touched on so many emotions. The actors were so real, I totally saw them as a family going through this horrible nightmare. The father was really annoying at the beginning and his face bugged me with all the close ups and his tired face. I guess he did play the 'bitter husband not getting any' really well. But I didn't like the way they'd focus on him so much.. I was thinking this guys an **shole. I was happy he got the implant and not her.....(heeheehee) The way the camera moved and timing really sets a mood. It only scares you if you think it's possible for this to happen and I'm not a scientist but I'm not stupid to think it can't. The theatre was totally quiet once the credits started. This is totally not for kids and it's pg-13 but I wouldn't take sensitive 13 or 14 year old to it. Younger Teenagers talking about oral sex.

Decent film. The acting was so-so but the storyline kept my attention even though you could figure out the ending halfway through the movie. I give it a 6 out of 10.

This is one of those movies that once you watch it, you realize that it easily could have been a 4 hour movie... there were some inconsistency issues, but not enough to take away from the action... it is a "things jump out from nowhere" type scare without the loud sound effect that usually accompanies the scare attempt... and it works really well because the visually scary parts are perfect! I loved the directors ability to always have you suspenseful and on the edge of your seat thinking to yourself "OMG what's about to happen is going to be horrifying, but I can't even fathom what it will be!" Although I don't think that they get you as emotionally involved in the characters as they needed to, they still connected you with them on a human level, which was plenty to keep you involved.... but the overall feel of the movie was that of "if this stuff is true, we really have no control over what they can and cannot do....completely helpless"...
2 thumbs moderately up from me...

This movie was pretty creepy,scary, but pretty awesome. Since I am 12, I'm going to say that this was one of the best movies I have ever seen over my 12 years on Earth. By looking at the TV trailer, it looks like ghosts are doing all the weird things that go on in the Barret's house. But no! It is ALIENS! Based on the storyline, kids that are under the age of around 8 years old should not see this movie. If I were 7 or 8, I would scream my head off in the theater and wet the bed in my sleep. So you get it now. DO NOT TAKE LITTLE JOHNNY TO SEE THIS ALIEN HORROR MOVIE! When I saw this movie, you don't know how many teenage girls screamed their heads off in their boyfriends face. The end. But really. SEE THIS MOVIE!!! IT IS SOOO SCARY!!!!!!!!

I enjoyed the movie, excellent effects - definately spooky. The ending confused me though - the ending was too abrupt and I heard other people in the audience go, huh?
Other than that - good movie.
