The premise would have worked (it's done before), but the mediocre script keeps it from getting us more involved in what's going on. Avatar combined special effects with story to move both forward with emotional pull, so you aren't asking too much to have both solid effects and story working together. Now the ending is intriguing. A rockem sockem with her boyfriend against the aliens would be pure pulp action. I'd love to see that.


I thought the premise was good, but then I saw the trailer. It looks like something Roland Emerich would do, but with less money and poorer casting choices. The special effects look cool, but I think I'm asking too much when I want a story as well.
