The Day The Earth Stood Disappointed:
Sci-Fi and Disaster film are made on a Big level in Hollywood. There are many films made in past on this genre and few of them made to top box office hits. "TDTESS" joins the wagon of such films, but after watching so many films on such genre films will the current offering offer us something different or will be saga of previous films ?
I remember when "Independence Day" was to be released huge cutouts of the best scenes [Destructions of Best Monuments of the world] were posted in all cinema halls. more than a decade later such posters were posted all over cinema houses again for "TDTESS". Thus the expectation level rises and when you watch the film you want Action, Sci-Fi, Alien Attack,etc and sadly you dont get enough in this film.
Without revealing the story much, the film is about a alien who comes to earth to save the planet from dieing. what happens in the process is the film all about. we have seen such types of film in past end number of times. makers of such films should understand that when a audience comes to see such films they expect good Sp.Effects, Action along with a decent story or else for a normal layman they all are same.Also they should stop showing that all disaster happens only on U.S.A, and President of U.S is representing the whole world.
TDTESS lacks good Sp.Effects and Action as the promos promised, and relies only on the curiosity to find out what the alien will do to our planet earth. On positive side the film has good message, Few good Scenes [ Majorly watched in Promos] and decent direction.
Watch it only if you are a die hard Sci-fi / Disaster Films buff.
