... movie with Aaron Eckhart as Staff Sergeant Nantz, a decorated Veteran plagued with the loss of his men while in Afghanistan. On the verge of retirement, he is pulled back into action when Aliens attack the Earth, In the US, the military takes its stand to hold the invaders in Los Angeles!
Slow start but picks up when the fight starts. Would hold as a first date movie, also would have been content waiting to watch it on DVD. Like the spin on the reason why the aliens attack – water is used for fuel for their spaceships.
