    amazing original story.
    great visuals.

    a lot of inconsistencies in the story.
    a lot of unbelievable and silly moments. felt i was watching a skit on snl a few times.

    7/10.

    the story was stupid. aliens come to earth - to south africa of all places - and a corporation headed by white males decides to put the alien race in a shanty town where they are later served with eviction notices which the aliens can somehow read. world governments don't show much interest in helping improve alien / human relations and instead let whitey keep an alien down in the ghetto. i fully expected christopher to state that he wanted to talk to his lawyer. main character whined for two hours straight and i wished death upon him for the entire duration of the movie. aliens were too human with their mannerisms / emotions. another movie full of gimmicky, handheld camera work. could have some potential if developed. had zero backstory / character development.

    Not really. 'We found some malnourished aliens' != backstory

    Nothing more was necessary for the purpose of the movie though.

    Oh right. Aliens used earth as the breakdown lane when their spaceship's engine threw a rod. They were hungry, so they traded guns for cat food. a+++ back story.

    Lets see, glowing review from OTers and rotten tomatoes vs the small amount of negative nancies crying, napping, and missing the movie because of their A.D.D. and I'm the one trolling.

    How stupid would it be for aliens to choose the nearest habitable planet. STUPID I tell you.
