    Just watched it yesterday:

    Here is a very brief summary, basically an Alien race comes to "save the earth", not from other aliens, but from us. Our destruction of the earth, global warming etc. is why the aliens have decided to eliminate us from earth. The whole movie is then about how we manage to save it back from the aliens :)

    Walky, you're kind of retarded. People are asking if it's worth watching, not asking the whole summary outline of the movie to ruin and spoil it for them.

    My roomate was just telling me that he's looked at a bunch of reviews, and they've all marked it HORRIBLE. He said the reviews where that it was completely lame, and that the original from 40 years ago outshines this one a ton.

    Plus.. I mean, yeah.. Keanu.. lol

    Ummmmm, 57 years ago, actually... and I saw it when it was fresh.

    In fact, it was just on TV the other day and I watched it again. :eek:

    It's about aliens, Ant... the kind that come from outer space, not the ones who swam over. ;)

    You can't download a movie like this. Pirate copies are such shit quality, a movie like this one must be watched at the cinema :D

    I saw it yesterday and I must say that it sucked. I'm sure it will get bad reviews by the time the weekend is over.

    i saw it yesterday and i liked it. not sure why all the negative reviews. it wasn't a great movie, but it kept me interested. the only part i really didn't like was Jaden Smith. He seemed annoying at times. i've never seen the original so it kept me wondering what would happen next and that's why it kept my attention.
