The movie can be best enjoyed by keeping your mind open and using your imagination. If you put a blind eye and on some of the illogical scenes and plot holes, the movie can be fun and entertaining. But being directed by Jon Favreau, I was disappointed by the plot.
Some illogical scenes in white ink:
- When aliens die, don't their weapons drop off?
- If the alien woman can withstand fire, why not an explosion?
- Why didn't they just use explosives to fight the aliens?
There was a lot of action in this movie but I'd say it was not enough to make the movie exciting. A lot of gunshots were made but of course, we want to see something more than that. The effects were good but not that much was needed for the movie. I appreciated that there were bits of humor, romance and drama mixed in. The presentation of the alien was not that different from other movies but it was okay.
Spoiler alert in white ink: I'd like to note that the indians were discredited in this movie.=p
Overall, I'd say its a so-so movie. It's okay to watch to pass some time or if you're curious on how the movie goes. It is passable but not impressive.
