People seem to either love or hate this film. Personally I love it. It's a great story of aliens on earth and their situation is a commentary on real life refugees. Overall the film has a gritty documentary feel that gives it an added edge.

Plot is really silly. From SCIFI point of view, it's REALLY weak. But as action movie it's worth to see.... The are valuable lessons in here too. I've really enjoyed operators work! There are some really nice action scenes which deserves respect to whole team. If not the plot, and I mean a rushed story, and a weak prediction how things could ago if this would really happen, then this movie would deserve at least 9 stars.. but for now sorry not more than 7.. There's too much silly situations, if any creature that has intellect would exist in such huge amount... just imagine what would happen.. I'd say that all countries of the world, with all possible troops, would isolate that territory by 500 miles around.. and not even a bee would fly near borders. Ahrr anyway.. plot could be lot better!
