• ...as it was intended... this was a FUN SciFi movie not meant to be taken seriously like Independence Day (for example). If you understand that, you will appreciate this movie for what it is. The cast was great. The effects were great. The plot was unbelievable---because it is FICTION---yes, there were some forced politically-correct themes in here and forced sympathy dialogue that could have been removed, but apart from that, I recommend watching it.
