This movie can be summed up in the words of someone who recently saw it and referred to the title as “The Two Hours My Brain Stood Still”. Now I didn’t know much about the 1951 classic, but it looked interesting enough.

While there are a few good special effects, not even that can really save the movie. The movie becomes preachy by the fact that humans need to be destroyed just to save the earth and you find yourself not even caring by the end. I’m a fan of Keanu Reeves and Jennifer Connelly, but I don’t know what inspired them to pick this movie and I’ve heard it differs from the original a bit. Aliens come + bad humans = bad earth = aliens give humans another chance = maybe good earth = bad movie.
