Very suspenseful, great mechanical alien machines (huge, like giant locomotives), lots of tension. Spent too much time on the Tom Cruise father figure, who in this film looks like a 20-something year old deadbeat dad, way too much panicking, yelling, stupid tense personal moments. Dakota Fanning great as always. Horrible ending (son back from the dead!), seems like a strange/weak ending to a tense film.
