This movie started slow for me and introduces the events documentary style (mockumentary). The aliens, however, were immediately interesting to see. When the movie begins to move away from the mockumentary presentation, I begin to take more interest. Liking action movies, I certainly don't mind the action sequences.

While I wouldn't have minded a vague ending, one in which we don't exactly know the fate of the protagonist, the way the movie actually ended wasn't satisfying.

Overall great movie. Though personally I would like Avatar (2009) better, and Star Trek (2009) better also. Star Trek has more of the action which I enjoy watching. Avatar has a lot of material, but contains some action, and an epic battle scene. I just realized that all three were released in 2009.

Pretty good HISHE (How It Should Have Ended) episode.
