Synopsis: In the Hawaiian Islands, an international naval fleet at Pearl Harbor engages in a dynamic and intense battle against an alien species known as “The Regents”. The aliens come to planet Earth on a mission to build a power source in the ocean. Upon their visit, they come in contact with the naval fleet. The film is also purported to show both sides of the story, from the aliens’ perspective as well as the humans’, so the audience knows exactly where the opponent’s ships are. –Universal
The Positive: The hits: the special effects are worth the ticket; the ensemble cast has interesting chemistry; some unexpected humor along the way.
The Negative: The misses: The alien invasion storyline lacks originality; the script isn’t quite as polished as the visual effects; quite long for a simple story.
STARMOMETER SCORE: 6/10
