ORIGINAL PLOT: A sci-fi action thriller and drama revolving around several different interconnected characters during an invasion of Earth by aliens from another world.
REINTERPRETED PLOT: Aliens have officially invaded Earth. Several locations throughout the globe have been blocked by force fields by the invaders who want to rule the world with an iron fist. As a result, the worst case scenarios have become realities - poverty has risen, politics are ruled by the malicious extraterrestrials who want to bring control over the human race and wipe out mankind if needed, and population has been decreasing due to lack of habitation and natural resources.
Having had enough, a band of resistance soldiers disguised as local markets or junkyards are devising a plan to retaliate and to put an end to this communist nature of the creatures and to bring civilization back to the way it was. But in the process of doing so, friendships and loyalty will be tested, questions will be raised, and the stakes are raised astronomically for every mistake or accomplishment made.
MPAA: Rated R for intense sequences of sci-fi violence and gore throughout, pervasive language, and brief drug content.
(Sidenote: Since every alien invasion movie that I have seen is all about attempting to wipe out mankind, I decided to add a few human qualities to the extraterrestrials.)
