Aaron Eckhart puts his rugged features to good use here, taking a break from soppy romances (Love Happens) to kick some alien butt.

"Textbook alien invasion," a military analyst informs us, as a motherlode of livid aliens come to take our water away. It's up to Eckhart's war hero, who has just decided to hang up his army boots, and his young soldiers to prevent the annihilation of the human race. This gung-ho, thoroughly corny guilty pleasure is more war movie than sci-fi.
