Data, Brent Spinner! Loved him in this movie. This was the best sci-fi, war movie in 20 years. The first 45 minutes were rough as the characters were developed. The lack of Will Smith cost about 100 million at the box office. But the action and geeky sci fi kept me glued to the screen. Draining the lizard and giving the bird to the aliens was perfect, sorta like a Will Smith tribute. And the ending, that was brilliant. I can't wait to see us "kick some serious alien butt."
