Scientists are scrambling to try and understand it

Battle: Los Angeles (2011

A dull, repetitive Hoo Rah for the US Marine Corp. It strives for the immediacy of films like Blackhawk Down, but like that film is just a constant barrage of noise that has no real variety in tone (but unlike that film has not got the excuse of being based on real events) and plods along to it's dumb, inevitable conclusion.
Very much like Skyline it pretends to jump straight in to the action but then backtracks 24 hours for a slow, pointless introduction of characters that you won't recall the names of even ten minutes later, let alone when they are killed off in messy, second hand fight sequences.
