I actually thought this movie would be a mindless cgi action-fest. And it kind of is, but underneath all the explosions there seems to be more to this film. It's actually suprised me. Either I am reading way too much into it, or the script was cleverly done so as to create a movie that looks like pro-Navy propaganda on the surface while at the same time asking some questions about how humanity interacts with the "unknown" and the sort of things we glorify and see as "heroic". One really important question seems to divide audiences too. Were the aliens "good" or "bad"? And I'd like some thoughts on this question, so I created this thread and poll.
