Rating: 4/5 -- The aliens-among-us plot gets a very entertaining and inventive update.

A movie that shoehorns a blunt warning into its silly but entertaining story of a young radio astronomer's one-man battle against sinister extraterrestrials. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- A good premise, hampered by a weak ending.

...[Twohy] keeps us on the edge of seats not by dazzling us with lights and sound but by tantalizing his audience with basic, well-wrought suspense...

Rating: B -- The CGI alien special effects are only so-so, but the film is rich in ideas, well-executed and is pleasingly entertaining even if silly. Full Review

Product Description:

A radio astronomer obsessed with listening for some sort of cosmic noise finally hears a shockwave late one evening. In his search for an explanation he discovers a horrifying fact -- Earth is the target for an imminent alien invasion!

Plot Synopsis:

Radio astronomer Zane Ziminski becomes intrigued by some strange wavelengths and noises he picks up over his transmitter. But when Zane alerts his boss to his findings, he's fired. So Zane conducts an investigation on his own, tracing the sound waves to a Mexican village. After more sleuthing (and some odd occurrences), Zane discovers a power plant -- that turns out to be the headquarters of some very deadly extraterrestrials...
