Director Gareth Edwards got tapped to helm the upcoming new "Godzilla" thanks to this indie hit, about an American couple trying to get back into the U.S. -- through a section of Mexico that's crawling with alien invaders. Decent suspense flick that could've used some more monster action, but it's done well in spite of its obviously low budget.

Despite a meandering subplot and an improbable romance, director/writer/head of photography Gareth Edwards created a surprisingly vivid and splendidly handsome "what-if" portrayal of extra-terrestrial infestation. Throughout the film, viewers are treated to an array of wonderful cinematography aided by sharp editing and sprinkled with effective, but not detracting, CGI and special effects. While a lot of viewers complain about the absence of the actual aliens, I do not believe a heavy increase of on-screen time for the creatures would have aided the film in any way. Rather, it may merely present more artificial eye-candy for a film that already had plenty, both artificially and naturally, by means of the aforementioned. Perhaps certain marketing, trailers, or even critics have unfairly deemed this film as a "horror" or "disaster film," which may lead viewers to expect something that isn't there; thus, leading to ultimate disappointment and even regret. However, if one goes into this film with a clean slate and appreciation for good, not great, film-making, it will be hard not to take something positive away from this little gem.

What a bunch of crap. I kept waiting for something to happen. The monsters are far and few between. A nice idea, could have been a good movie even with the lame love story. Instead it was just a big flop.
