      This film is a remake of a 1951 classic science fiction film of the same name. Although most of the critics here in India gave it negative reviews my opinion stands otherwise. According to me this is a great film, this film has a somber underlying thought and focuses on


      current issue of man’s environmental damage to the planet.

      Keanu Reeves plays the roll of Klaatu, an alien whose primary objective is to communicate with the world leaders and warn them about the impending doom that Earth will face. When he is denied a dialog he escapes from the research facility where he was held captive. He mobilizes the alien forces and ...


      • declares to Dr.Helen Benson that all people have to die in order to save the Earth, since man is the root cause for damage to the Earth. Klaatu is accompanied by GORT, a gigantic robot which possess high level AI. The robot usually stay immobile until provocated. The robot is captured and is experimented on, but it converts into a swarm of
        nano robots, which consume everything on its way. The conclusion of the film is a philosophical one.

        The mood of the film is thoroughly enjoyable, the sense of inevitability and helplessness is exciting. The special effects and visuals are mind blowing. According to me it is an interesting piece and a must watch. I give a thumbs up to this film.

        Rating 3.5/5
