I wanted to hate this film but I couldn't. Instead, I really liked it.

I've said many times in past reviews "I wanted to like this film, but I couldn't". This is the first time in my over 250 reviews I'm saying the opposite.

Going into this, I had very low expectations, and from the very start, those expectations were met with the very poor acting and dialog, followed by the start of an outrageous story-line.

As the story continued, I began to notice that the camera angles (poorly aimed in some scenes) were similar to video games like Call of Duty. Then I noticed the background music was similar as well. For a few minutes I thought to myself "oh boy, this movie is gonna be a waste of time", but oddly enough, all those factors started to grow on me, including the bad acting/dialog.

Then I started to notice the directing and cinematography were actually quite good - and those poorly aimed camera angles actually made the scene very realistic, especially for a B-type low budget film with two amateur directors, Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott.

Oddly enough, I also started to look past the poor acting and dialog from Dave Bautista and Brittany Snow and instead, became fond of their characters, and able to relate to them as just 'average Joe's' trying to survive. As I grew up in Brooklyn, I realized it wasn't bad acting/dialog, but instead their characters were spot on Brooklynites! For that matter, Dave Bautista nailed his character as a passive war vet turned janitor who lost his family.

All of a sudden, BOOM, I was engulfed in this film and was really enjoying it. You can't compare a low budget B-type film to the blockbusters, and as such, to review it on it's own merits, this film was outstanding! I really felt like I was right there where all the action and suspense were happening, and was rooting for the Brooklynites.

Sure one could argue about plot holes and an un-realistic story, but this is pure fiction (although it does make you think), and the screenplay was written so well with the pacing spot on, I felt like I was watching a live newscast in a war zone. What I also really liked (and respected) was the fact that there were zero clich├ęs in this film, and it was pretty much unpredictable. Even the ending (not going to give it away) was a shocker and certainly not expected.

It's sad to see such a low IMDb score from people comparing this to blockbuster films, or inserting their political opinions and agendas into the story. This for me was simply a fun ride, a great suspenseful adventure thriller, executed very well from every perspective. It left an impact on me, wanting more, and I do hope a part 2 is considered.

I will watch this again, and it's a well deserved and much respected 9/10 from me... great job to all those involved in the production of this sweet little gem.

Engaging and Thought Provoking

So I scanned through this movie first of all not really intending to watch it, but the reviews here intrigued me enough to go ahead and watch it and I'm glad I did.

It generated a lot of thought activity in my mind about the reality of an invasion and what the on the ground response would be - and in some ways this movie struck me as possibly realistic. Although I had a real issue with people using hand guns all the time and leaving the rifles on the ground. Maybe you feel more at home with your particular hand gun, but there is no doubt that an assault rifle has a lot more ammo and firepower. But other than that it was engaging enough.

The parts are acted well enough, and the fact that this is a low budget movie is not distracting at all, in fact they have done very well with their budget.

It generated a lot of thought about the role of militias and gun ownership in a country like the USA.

But it also generated a lot of thought about the film making process as well, and that is why I have rated this movie 7 out of 10. It's inspiring in a way to see what can be done by dedicated flim makers.

Some people found the ending to be too abrupt, and yes it may be - but that wasn't distracting or irritating for me in any way. I was still satisfied.

F#ck This Movie and Any Movie Like It.

This is a well done low budget movie with a TERRIBLE script. I'll save you some time. The two main characters DIE. I don't know why people write scripts like this and how they get turned into movies boggles my mind. There is not enough depth written into the these characters to make it tragedy. And if it's not a tragedy, IT IS JUST A WASTE OF TIME.

I like Brittany Snow and Dave Bautista is carving out an interesting career path but someone should have put their foot down and said the ENDING SUCKS. Even the equally cliche 'they fight through one war zone to find the whole world is a war zone' cliche would've worked better. Actually they have that one here, as well as a special DOUBLE F-You to the audience.

It is a total waste of the audience's time to invest in characters that are going to die only because of sh!tty writing. SMMFH.
