While a decent movie and overall well acted, this film didn’t have the chutzpah of some of the other great science fiction films; E.T., Close Encounters, Star Wars, Star Trek, Men In Black to name but a few that hoover around the top of the list. Shannon is a good actor that I fist saw in Boardwalk Empire and the same with Sparks. I felt that there were some very good actors in this cast; Shepard, Dunst, Driver, that were under utilized. Not a bad film but there are better ones out there.
". . . those who claim to know the Mind of God, who will tell you what God thinks and how He will judge and condemn others—those people are the greatest of all blasphemers." Aloysius Xingu Leng Pendergast
