Movie Review by Shannon
May 8th, 2012

MY GRADE: B minus to B

A fun movie that adults who have watched SciFi movies will appreciate. There are many inside references to the old and new movies. Kids won't get them so much but the story is fun enough to keep them involved. It's a what if a race of green aliens were just like humans in the 1950s and had fears of "aliens" eating their brains, controlling their minds and other creepy actions. Rampant themes of prejudice and how a society can destroy itself by obsessing over its fears. Notable voices by  Dwayne Johnson, Jessica Biel, Justin Long, Gary Oldman, Seann William Scott, and John Cleese. This expensive movie (by the standards of Spain where it was produced) had a budget of $70M and yielded a bit over $105M at the Box Office.

ANIMATION: B minus to B; CHARACTERS/DIALOGUE: B; STORY/PLOTTING: B minus; SCI FI FOCUSES: B plus; HUMOR: C plus to B minus; WHEN WATCHED: early May 2012; OVERALL GRADE: B minus to B.
