Too stupid to be taken seriously, too dull to be fun
A U.S solider finds himself in Africa when aliens attack but he has lost his memory.
The effects and production levels are quite good here. The aliens make sense and there is a fair amount of drama and action.
However, it is very boring. Our hero blunders around Kenya from one bunch of douche bags to another.
These encounters tend to end in a rather limp gun fight.
This film subscribes to the Hollywood notion that there are three groups of people who just don't get the concept of guns: 1940's Germans, Asians and Non-American black people.
It never occurs to these sub groups of humanity that with a gun you don't have to run wildly into your enemies fire like some kind of berserker.
This makes the action scenes look very amateur and unbelievable as everyone charges into a nice empty spot of screen where the CG man can scrub them out.
This could have been a bit of fun but then on top of this there are several vomit inducing speeches about the human spirit and the power of sacrifice.
Also I don't think the that the person who commissioned this movie actually understands what the word "revolt" means, I think they got it confused with "repel" or "resist" perhaps.
Not the worst Sci-Fi ever, it is at least watchable - but I wouldn't.
