I thought this movie was actually pretty good. Some of it didn't make sense to me though. Just because she teaches and studies language what made the Military think she could figure out alien language? I didn't even know what they meant. It just looked like a bunch of large circles to me. The aliens reminded me of War of the Worlds. Sometimes when they showed them they played that same weird sound. They also looked like Octopi. I thought it was really weird that the whole time that they showed visions of her and a little girl it was really the future. I was actually very surprised the aliens were there to help humanity and not destroy it. It's different then all the other alien movies and I like that. Who said aliens had to take over Earth? There may be nice ones out there. It's not like we actually know what's in space. It's just like how we don't know how much is hidden in the ocean. I think the fact that this whole vision thing was a "weapon" was super crazy. The ship kind of made me laugh because it looks like a banana. Octopus looking aliens driving a banana. It really is funny to think about. I still want to know how she was able to figure out what the ink circles meant. What if she had the words wrong or the sentences wrong? How did she know what to write back without accidentally starting a war? How would she know what she is saying is right? How did the Military even know she could figure it out? What if they were wrong? They could of made everything worse. It's already bad the other countries tried to start a war with them.
