there were scenes that were a total waste, like having him talking on the phone with his girlfriend for 5 minutes with the camera just focused on him and then they show that the phone was tapped (like anyone didnt see that coming). srsly how does a scene like that even make it into the movie.
Well yeah, I mean they could have triangulated his position even without tapping the phone when he made his first call but they still had to show the scene to move the plot along.
how are there 1.8 million aliens with tons of alien weaponry but a gang of nigerians or whatever they were somehow control a big part of the district and kill aliens at random?
I think that the aliens were trying to leave the planet not overrun it but I agree mostly with your point. That was definitely a plot hole.
also how does the liquid that the aliens use for fuel somehow also turn humans into aliens?
It seems that the alien engineering was based on genetics, which explains why the weapons were inoperable by humans.
if they spent 20 years trying to get every drop of that liquid, how come they didn't need to get more when a bunch of it sprayed on that dudes face?
Maybe they collected more than they needed just to be sure that they had enough?
also if the aliens wanted to go home and peopl wanted them the leave, then why didn't we just let them leave? was the MIU preventing it because they wanted to figure out how the weapons worked or something?
That was the reason.
there was very little action, the part when he gets into the mechwarrior was pretty cool but still inconsistent. when it activates it can use it's gravity thing to catch all those bullets but then later on it gets destroyed by getting shot up? was the guy just incapable of operating it correctly or something?
Yeah I think he just didn't know how to fully operate it.
the camera work was inconsistent. it started off with a documentary feel and then all the sudden it switches to just being a regular movie and switches back and forth throughout the movie.
I thought that was done well. Gave it some feel for realism of the situation.
also, how did those people that were commenting for the documentary know everything that had gone on?
Why wouldn't they? Everything had already happened and they were talking about what they heard/knew.
i could go on but i need to go to work, needless to say the movie was just really boring and was pretty much terrible.
I still don't believe that anyone could think the movie was terrible. Special effects and action alone were enough to make the movie at least watchable unless you are only into chick flicks.
The biggest plot hole for me was how weak the gangs and the assassins were. They can't even bring down this one dude who, based on our knowledge, has zero military training and never killed anyone before?
