i was highly skeptical about this movie, as i am about most movies we watch, but i was pleasantly surprised. i really enjoyed this and would definitely recommend watching it. i even gave it four stars on the netflix rating thing which is incredibly rare in this house. i thought it was going to be some "cloverfield" disaster thing, but it was more a character piece than a sci-fi thriller. it reminded me of "the host" in it's approach toward the alien theme. it was more about the two characters and their journey home. the aliens were mostly a backdrop. there existence was what kept you in suspense, but they were only actually seen a few times.
why do movies like this never get the credit they deserve? the description and the poster don't do it justice. there was definitely a lot of thought and intent that went into this, and that's what i think movies should have.
