Just saw it. Usually I give some leeway for summer popcorn movies on plot and such, but this movie is just plain bad. The plot, the acting, the lame way they try to get past characters from the 1996 movie into the story..it's just bad. Stay away.

The reviews are bad. I have never seen the box office take shown like this: Box Office: $41039944...as if they are trying to hide the fact that it is, more or less, bombing.


EDIT: Apparently this is the new way of showing the box office take. Seems a bit strange...

I haven't seen it yet, but it seems to me that if you're asking why, then, if you've heard about the bad reviews, why don't you read the reviews?

That's exactly like me saying all of the movies you watch on VHS are not worth my time. And I know this to be not true.

Maybe the movie just stinks and had not much of a story. Just because people don't want to waste money seeing it doesn't mean they hate it.

My suspicion is that the premise of aliens threatening life on earth is a bit played out at the moment. Perhaps they went to the well too many times?

"The Huns are coming!" never plays out. It just needs to be done different and well.

Probably true. Makes one wonder how and why experienced people, with ample prior success, spend a few hundred million dollars and still make crap.

The reviews for this endeavor indicate that it is crap. Too bad, I like Goldblum and Spiner.
