Turned out to be a pretty good movie

I was VERY impressed with the directing, cinematography, visual effects, production design and editing in this suspenseful and entertaining indie sci-fi thriller!

All the aforementioned had the makings of a big blockbuster production, and were probably the best I've seen for a B-list indie film and would certainly shame some of the A-list blockbuster productions I have seen lately. Even the alien invaders - a mash-up between District 9 and Transformers makes the robot-like alien creatures spectacular. So huge props to the VFX/CGI teams.

What's even more impressive, is the vision of the seasoned Editor- turned novice Director (this is his first directorial debut for a full-length feature film - also credited for writing) Joe Miale's ability to put together all the stunning visuals, effects, camera angles etc. that made me feel as if I was right there in front of all the combat and action. I'm not sure what the budget for this movie was, but based on the entire production's results, it sure seems like it was huge.

However were this movie does fall short, is in the writing/screenplay. There were many plot holes and dialog fails that I felt could have been avoided.

Both lead actors were OK, considering neither had much major motion picture experience except for Bérénice Marlohe's role in Skyfall and Kill Switch. She was convincing throughout the entire movie, where Lee Pace had some unconvincing moments. But the extras and secondary actors from South Africa were all outstanding and very convincing in their small roles.

I rated this movie based on an indie film and it's associated merits, of which overall where very impressive - much better than I expected, and as such, give this a very deserving 9/10.

If you're a sci-fi/combat-action/thriller fan, grab your popcorn and pop and enjoy the ride!

Low Budget you say Huh?

I said i will give it a chance after my great disappointment with some huge budget movies, i told my self it won't hurt watching a movie with not too much anticipation. But it turned to be one of those movies that you won't forget for a long time, the acting is super especially those very very talented African actors, they managed to deliver reality in its true form. the script is smart and straight to the point, lead actor has great potential in him, editing is fantastic, and the story is straight forward with no twists. overall i enjoyed the movie even with some not so perfect CGI. totally recommended.

Decent Sci-Fi

I'll give it an 8 because if you take the budget into consideration, they did a pretty good job. It's actually impressive how they strategically stretched the budget, and I'm not just talking about filming in Africa, though that saved plenty of money, looking apocalyptic without much staging.

The Story is fine, nothing ground-breaking. The message is simple and repeated a few times in slogan form for our benefit in case we missed it.

There is one minor technical but highly visible plot hole around the end, and they know it - they show that they know it. It's likely they just *couldn't* do it right, but it's really not a big deal. Come to think of it, this movie has fewer holes than most amazingly.

I'd say it's a good ScyFy channel movie + , so if you're OK with that then you're OK with this.
