One of the greatest openings in any sci-fi movie. Sadly it falls apart the longer into the movie you get. I give the opening a 9 and the rest 5. So 7 it is.

Can it be entertaining and visually impressive? I would say yes, even though the CGI is starting to show its years.

Is the main idea of the movie good? Absolutely, I love a good old More

Tom Cruise and Dakota Fanning don the well-worn masks of dysfunctional family members who rediscover one other against the backdrop of an apocalyptic, world-shaping event. Oddly, many of the events surrounding the central theme of alien invasion take a back seat to the broken family's constant b More
