The basis for this story seems inherently simple. Us vs. Them. Who are "them"ﾠseems to beﾠthe obvious question? They are an alien race that was brought to earth by a meteorite. Do we know what they want? There is speculation as to minerals, water, oxygen, etc... but we never really know for sure. What we do know is they want us gone. It's not a matter of different countries military banding together anymore, all have formed together to form the UDF. We see the soldiers of tomorrow storming the beach of Normandy, fighting for freedom, solidarity, and life. Howﾠcan the aliens (Alphas) know what the next step in the plan is? That's a question you'll have to answer by seeing the movie. I will say that this movie, though a new take on an old story of sorts, is a cross between War of the Worlds, Groundhog Dayﾠand The Butterfly Effect. Through some unlikely pairings and some strategy, the story is told well. There are areas for improvement, but there are also areas of great originality. I bet you're dying to know... do we win or do they? Watch it and see.
