Even as an independent film, it could have done much better all the way around. Sound is horrible, acting is horrible, props are horrible, and special effects are horrible.
In the beginning, you see alien craft converging in a war. Though you can & should understand that indie films do not have big budgets, you can always work around it (I work in the production industry myself). Then you'll eventually see a "marine". Props are cheap for gear for military. They don't have NAV's, nor the right kind of setup. Hell, the gun slings are literally strings. Simple 3 point slings with quick detach are only $5-10 bucks. They are also wearing the wrong camo. It appears as its German fleck but I can't really tell because the quality is horrible. Should have stuck with a simple multicam. There is too much to list of what is wrong in the movie, so I'll talk about the acting.
Of course you probably wouldn't have the budget to hire A list actors, but the acting itself, reminds me of simple teenagers and their friends coming together and trying to create a movie. Acting is not fluid at all, movement is not fluid at all. It's like they read their lines, and waited for the other person to read theirs and that's it.
In production, it seems like they just went with pre-production and skipped post. Relatively long scene transitions mix with relatively short scenes cater to an awful watching experience. ADR and sound work was horrible at best. In comparison, I did the ADR work in Mr & Mrs Smith. Check out the elevator scene in that movie. It takes quite some time, but inexpensive, to reproduce the sounds for a complete natural ambient & atmospheric setting. The background music was never suspenseful.
Overall, the movie does not capture excitement or viewer attention. You'll want to turn this movie off 10 minutes into it.
