True, it doesn't get much darker than being under alien attack, and that's the plight of several teens who are in Moscow when the assault begins in this sci-fi tale.
Emile Hirsch ("The Girl Next Door") and Joel Kinnaman, who was cast recently for an upcoming remake of "RoboCop," are among those caught up in the mayhem as landmarks explode around them. Rachael Taylor ("Charlie's Angels"), Olivia Thirlby and Max Minghella also star in the tale that clearly was engineered for the 3-D effects that enhanced it in theaters. DVD extras: "making-of" documentary; audio commentary by director Chris Gorak; deleted and extended scenes. ** (PG-13: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
