CHOOSE TO BELIEVE. CHOOSE TO FIGHT. CHOOSE TO LOVE.
In the future, an alien species has taken over the Earth and almost every human being; when this finally happens to Melanie Stryder (Saoirse Ronan), the alien inside her realizes that Melanie’s mind isn’t all gone. Stephenie Meyer wrote the “Twilight” series and a comparison is inevitable – this time there are aliens instead of vampires and werewolves, and the teen at the center of the story is once again torn between two boys. Fans of the director will recognize themes from his previous movies, but this is slow-going, overly solemn sci-fi, with a less than thrilling cast.
