Well I have to concur with most reviews here, this is not a great moviewhich is a shame as I think it could have been. Most people use theterm "wooden" when they write about peoples acting ability in certainroles and for the most part, they are not just wooden but petrified.The main character played by a young man, Marco Tolage definitely showssome promise with throwing all his emotions in to the last scenes.
The story is one told since time of fables began, that of a savior inone form or another, just like King Arthur was the savior and even inTV series like Once Upon a time, we have a savior, so classic good vsevil but the threat is from alien's. It would have been good if thewriter could have explored more about the reason for the bad guysrather than some one liner near the end.
For Sc-Fi people, it's watchable but yes, do not think it will blowyour socks off. Children with less movie going experience may like itas the script is short and really, not many people speak more than oneline of 5-7 words.

When a movie isn't very good, it just isn't very good. When you rate afilm higher than it should be rated because a) it was made by yourfriends, b) it was done on a really low budget, c) it was made in acountry where they usually don't make movies, d) gosh, they reallytried hard, etc. then you're not being honest. "It's good for what itis" doesn't make it good. This movie isn't very good. Yes, thecinematography, at times, is the best part of this film. Some of theCGI is passable. One or two actors were OK, at times. Sadly themajority of this film comes off as amateurish and juvenile. The actingis high-school drama-ish. The script feels like it was written by ateenager. It's derivative of so many other films, in particular, "I amNo. 4." The music isn't terrible, but it's placed inappropriatelythroughout the film. And the pacing, the timing, the editing... it'slaborious.The romances were entirely unnecessary, and the film shiftsfocus so many times that it's hard to know what it's about. I think thefilm was hurt most by a lack of a consistent production design. It'sall over the place and lacks continuity in look and feel. I think, as aproject, it's a good first attempt by young film-makers, but it failsto stand up with serious, professional productions. If you take thetime to watch it, (I saw it for free on Netflix) be prepared and don'texpect much.

The acting is so bad just watching it leaves a sour/agitated feeling inthe pit of your stomach.
It has a cool intro and the plot summary show potential, but I justcouldn't handle the acting.
My advice is watch it online if you really want to see for your selfdon't pay money to see this you likely wont last five minutes.
The human race is thrown into chaos as an alien invasion takes control of the planet in an effort to find one boy out of 7 billion people who holds the power to destroy them.
