a planet with conditions similar to earth was discovered, NASA transmitted a signal with the hope that extraterritorial being would respond. Alex was a talented navy but often wasted his potential for being indiscipline. during RIMPAC (Rim of the Pacific), he got into a fight with Nagata of the Japanese navy. at the same time, 5 alien ships responded to the NASA signal and landed on earth. they initiated a massive shield to trap the warships, including Alex's and Nagata's.
we went into the cinema with high expectation, and surprisingly we weren't disappointed! the slightly lengthy introductions of Alex was somewhat unnecessary, nor was his love story with the Admiral's daughter something to look forward to, but the battles were absolutely smart and engaging! the aliens reminded us of Transformers (2007-2011) due to the sound it emitted. the film was at its highest peak during battles, which did nothing less than having us feeling completely stunned and impressed with strategies so sophisticated that we wouldn't have been able to be exposed to otherwise.
