It was supposed to be a simple birthday weekend in Southern California. But when sunrise arrives two hours early in the form of a haunting light from an unknown source, a group of friends watch in terror as people across the city are drawn outside and swept into massive alien ships that have blotted out the L.A. skyline. From tankers to drones and hydra-like extraterrestrials, the aliens are inescapable and seemingly indestructible. Now, it will take every survival instinct the group has to elude capture in this riveting, action-packed sci-fi adventure starring Eric Balfour (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre), Donald Faison ("Scrubs") and Scottie Thompson (Star Trek).

The creatures themselves looked a lot like ones that have been in other movies (I guess they're union employees), and the ending of the story was impractical.
But who knows? Maybe there could be one man, who just happens to be young and good looking, who would be able to resist the influence of the alien creatures. Love can have strange and unpredictable powers.
As to the film.. It has some good visuals but I like my scifi with a little more meat on the bone. I prefer to know more about what is going on. This took me more as a teen horror/zombie movie with a alien theme. And really that's all this is.. Alien zombies come for our brains...The only thing missing was random shots of bare skin. They could have used the telescope in the room to carry the movie so much but didn't. It would have been nice to see shots of what was going on outside while the actors guessed at the aliens motive.
the effects were very good, excellent character animation of the aliens and ships. I'm not sure I liked that they were nearly industructable, but the twist was kind of cool when their ship regenerated. The ending was as other have said kind of a double edge let down. On the good side it was not your standard ending.. Hell, we lost.. aliens win.. everything is burning and being harvested. The bad side is that the last really good shots of the film were a half dozen near stills. It would have been much better to have added another 2 dozen of those shots storyboarding what was happening during their escape.
Overall I give it 3 out of 5 stars for my personal taste that this was a classic thin horror film than an alien invasion sci fi film. I'd watch Battle LA over this.
