The American software designers Sean and Ben travel to Moscow to sell their software to investors. However, their Swedish partner Skyler pulls a fast one on Sean and Ben, and they are out of the business. They go to a nightclub, where they meet American Natalie and Australian Anne and they flirt with the girls and see Skyler in the club. Out of the blue, the population is surprised by lights, which they mistake for natural phenomena. But soon, they learn that the lights are aliens invading Earth and using power supply to annihilate mankind. Sean, Ben, Natalie, Anne and Skyler hide in the kitchen and when they leave the place, they seek out survivors on the street. Are they the last people on Earth?
I did not have any interest to see this.
There are def. far better movies to watch, but this one is still fun. Rachael Taylor >>>>>>
I think the first half is oookay. I liked some of the characters (with Tye on Rachael Taylor, then Emilie Hirsch and that Russian girl were likeable too) and there was some suspense. It's basically a dead teenager movie, but a functional one. The weird genre change for the last third did not work as well
I remember one critic summed it up best: that he didn't know whether to be offended or impressed that they finally made a horror movie about people being chased and killed by nothing. (Invisible creatures, but still.)
