Movie Mike wrote:Also pretty much all the characters are lifted from Aliens as Aaron Eckhart is basically playing Hicks, Michelle Rodriguez is doing her standard tough Hispanic chick which is basically Vasquez, Ramon Rodriguez fills in the Lt. Gorman part as 2nd Lt. William Martinez who has never seen combat and defeats the aliens by blowing himself up when they approach, and then the rest of the cast is filled up with hysterical Hudsons.

Well I did watch the Blu-Ray and have no qualms with the picture, and I'll admit the aliens did look cool, as were the special effects used in the destruction of L.A. I just wish the first three quarters of the movie had been as good as the last act (which I'll admit was pretty fun). But I found almost every moment of "characterization" to be hamfisted and unbelievable. Example: Everyone in the unit is pissy because Aaron Eckhart went on a mission in the Middle East that resulted in some deaths, but he survived "Boo-hisss!". We're given no reason to believe the deaths were Eckart's fault, it's as if these soldiers don't understand that maybe going into combat could get you killed. I found that whole subplot to be cheap melodrama and really wasn't needed at all.
