A Marine platoon fights to prevent the city of Los Angeles from being overtaken by a race of highly advanced alien invaders in this epic sci-fi action thriller from director Jonathan Liebesman (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning) and producer Neal H. Moritz (I Am Legend, Fast & Furious). After decades of speculation about life on other planets, the people of Earth discover that extraterrestrials really do exist when destruction rains down from the stars on cities all across the globe. When the alien warships descend upon Los Angeles, however, the ferocious invaders discover that humankind won't go down without a fight as a gruff Marine staff sergeant (Aaron Eckhart) and his fearless troop of jarheads point their weapons skyward and make one last stand for the entire human race. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Great movie, kept me enthralled pretty much throughout. Good characters, nice that they gave you a feel for most of the guys in the group, rather than just a bunch of one dimensional acting. Good action sequences and some good special effects. I found it an interesting take on the aliens and their battlebot kinda thing, it kept breaking down and they were scrambling to get it aimed at the Marines and working... a different take than completely superior firepower and no weakness.
I wouldnt consider this a sci-fi film. It is more of a action movie who the enemies happen to be aliens. Very little is explained about the aliens and movie focuses more on character relations with each other; Even that came across as just ok. not enough character development. The cinematography and action scenes are pretty cool if thats just what your looking for. But there are tons of other movies that do it much better. would not recommend.
