You mean, on the (insanely expensive) remotely controlled hybrid human-alien bodies "piloted" by one soldier and two scientists working for the military, while in very dangerous territory ?
Originally it was three scientists. None were working for the military. And no, after growing 'insanely expensive' interspecies clones I probably wouldn't start implanting unnecessary gadgets in them, especially not just to watch some woman learn a new language and build a school for blue monkeys.

Beyond the special effects a truly awful film, almost as bad as Titanic, in fact it's to close to call.

Look at it this way if it was a book how do you think it would do?


A children's book for ages 7 - 10?

The effects were pretty good, and the back drop was amazing, but thats really all the movie had going for it.

It was easily the one of the most predictable movies I have ever seen, I defiantly knew exactly what was going to happen about 1/2 hour into the movie, just after he meets the hot blue critter for the first time.

Though it did use the 3d effects to immerse the viewer into the world, which is really the only good thing about the movie, but in this case its a really good thing. Frankly I would be disappointed if I had seen it in 2d, but the 3d is done well enough it makes up for the crummy story and actually makes this a good movie.

Also, silly marines forgot that you can just nuke the natives from orbit, just to be sure.



tbh ruined the whole damn movie. such a god damn plot hole.

and I saw it on a big screen with 3d and stuff, and the 3d looked pretty bad in parts, like when anything was out of focus to the camera it just was super blurry and flat looking on the screen.

that and they damn near show the whole damn plot line in the trailer...

overall I thought it was a pretty bad movie ect ect ect.

oh and they called it unobtainium, how bloody unoriginal can you get.

Last but not least : "hey, we're humans from planet Earth, we need some of the rocks in your ground, can we trade you something for them ?"
___

TL;DR : splendid visuals, corny, overdone, pocahontas-dances-with-wolves-through-ferngully-in-space, over-the-top tripe movie.
I've seen Saturday morning cartoons when I was little that had much more reasonable/believable storytelling.



Apparently they had already tried to trade but the natives didn't want any of it.
Loved the gunships they looked like something pulled out of Metal Slug.
Great movie to shelve your brain and enjoy the ride.

That wasn't a plot hole at all as it was addressed in the film.
They're a civilian corporation, not the military so they don't have access to nukes for one thing. Also the guy running the colony also specifically stated they couldn't just wipe out the locals because of public relations back home.
There's a pretty detailed discussion at tvtropes about this.

It's a little sad how quickly and often people go for the nuke option.

wait, so they have spaceships capable of travel in some reasonable time frame to some other planet yet can't jury rig a nuke? (hell it really doesn't even have to be a nuke, just use a MOAB or something)

and if they were worried about public relations back home somehow I doubt that strait up shooting the hell out of the big tree and then attempting to just wipe them out at the super tree would be the proper action to take.

I'll disagree, plus the chick in the core is hotter than any blue lady with a tail.

and ha! I didn't realize they called it unobtainium in the core, I though that was just what my friends dad called it after.

"The Core" was just... utterly amusing - should have been categorized a comedy instead of sci-fi

They don't have the resources to produce a WMD (it's why they're using a transport shuttle as bomber and pushing the one bomb they could make out of the back) etc. What equipment they do have is partly reconditioned from other tools / vehicles or shipped to them over long periods of time (several months I think).
They're also simply not allowed that sort of weaponry as they are a civilian mining corporation NOT a military outfit.

Blowing up one big ass tree to get at the resources that they're there to mine in the first place is a lot easier to justify than glassing the planet. People may still complain but it's no where near as extreme.

Saw it yesterday

Predictable and has the plot of a children's story (The trailer pretty much sums up the entire movie) but I suspect that was deliberate so not to confuse the masses. Really it's little more than a Disney cartoon except dressed up and in 3D

That said, I enjoyed it... Shocked

I loved it so much it almost makes me want to do this.


But then I remember I'd rather pew pew with my lazers.
