I will leave a detailed description of the plot and various deeper themes of this film for others to write. I will say it deals with symbiosis and how we are connected as beings one with another and that we do owe our fellow beings and this planet a certain respect. Also, the visuals in this film are quite extraordinary. On the one hand, an alien’s eye looked very genuine and yet I knew it was computer generated. In my opinion, there is too much computer generated effects. I for one miss some of the grandeur of the old realistic and actual sets used in some films such as the first “Star Wars” trilogy for example.
This film is an eye stunner and it does keep an audience’s attention. On the other hand, you couldn’t miss too much of the beginning of the film or you would have a hard time catching up with the story. It is unfortunate that the language content hits a rating of five in our content listing below, which means it contains very strong language and a lot of it. Also, there is a lot of violence in the movie. Even if it is a science fiction/fantasy movie there is still a ton of violence on screen. These factors spoil what could have been a movie a family could go enjoy together. As it is, we cannot award our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal to this picture.
