Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
Really, how slovenly is it to use invisible aliens? If you're going to tease us with nothing but pinwheels of light for three-quarters of the film, you'd better have one heck of a reveal up your sleeve.Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, 12.26.2011
It's clear from early on that these characters are as indistinct and lazily rendered as the floating blobs chasing them.Keith Staskiewicz, Entertainment Weekly, 12.28.2011
What's the point of going all the way to Moscow if the shots you come back with end up looking like cheap green-screen process work?Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times, 12.26.2011
An alien invasion flick that evidently expects dramatic shots of a depopulated Red Square to make up for a flatlining screenplay and the absence of even a single compelling character.John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter, 12.25.2011
