The concept of the film is intriguing, but a little weak. I could never fully pin down the motivation of the Bad guys. Do the people they hunt taste better than humans? If they wiped out an entire planet of beings that are 10 times stronger than any human on Earth, why not destroy Earth in one fell swoop? Seems to me that would take care of wiping out the 9. Honestly what makes the 9 so special that they need to be hunted to begin with? It is possible that answers to these questions will be answered in a sequel, assuming there is one. Despite all this the visuals are excellent, as is the action. The love story that develops is pretty good and heart warming on a 'finding your home' kind of way. Overall the character development is pretty good. Sadly this may be mostly forgettable for many.
There is a fair amount of swearing, frightening imagery and violence in this. It is a solid PG-13 for these things. I think its worth one gander if you're into Sci-fi fantasy.September 1st, 2011 · Details1 Thank ·
Looked like it was going to be better than it was. Wasn't bad, but I think it was made for a younger audience than it targeted...December 7th, 2012 · Details
This movie was and is LAME! Unless you've never actually seen the invention of the television and this is your first experience then there is no way you will like this movie. Still better than War Horse. Just sayingAugust 15th, 2012 · Details
I was pleasantly surprised with this film. I thought it to be quite entertaining and appropriate for 13 year olds. It lived up to the rating given by the MPAA.
By the end, I wanted a sequel just to know what happens.June 16th, 2012 · Details

Good movie for teens. Has a decent amount of violence but not nearly enough to make it an R.June 2nd, 2011 · Details
I took my 15-year-old daughter to see it and she was pretty frightened by the "aliens" and how cruel and evil they were.May 31st, 2011 · Details
I would agree that there were intense sequences of violence and action that may be too much for under 13 years of age. A good movie for action, special effects,and storyline.May 29th, 2011 · Details
Keeps you on the edge of your seat. It was an entertaining movie. Rated PG-13 for fictional violence. I'm excited for the next one.May 25th, 2011 · Details
