Boring Sequel that's got none of the light sun of daytime the original had. Darkly shot, family is not together healthy anymore.

Shows a mix of people that aren't really a family--shows families torn apart and grieving. BORING. Literally DARK the whole movie as far as lighting goes. Hardly any monsters.

My entire family really liked this movie. We were all on edge most of the film and we liked it slightly better than the first one, which was also good. I actually screamed (just a bit) at one point... Luckily, I wasn't the only one in the audience that did! It's pretty intense and gives a decent peek into how the aliens came to be. I'd say possibly too scary for kids under 12, but it's also great for them to see kids playing the roles of the heroes.
