This movie is a bad movie. It is. The effects are laughable, the dialogue is stilted. It's just not a good movie. Which is why I, personally, like it. It's pseudo-science, paranoia and trope atop trope. Everything from the military's "BOMB IT!" attitude to the scientists' scorn of "alternative theories" is cheesy and overused in B-rated sci-fi. There's nothing particularly new here.
Now that I have that out of the way, I will fully admit that I like the movie. I don't love it, and it isn't a favorite, but I like it. The acting isn't horrible (though the writing could have used some work), and the plot is at least moderately fresh. There's nothing particularly new about the characters and, in fact, I could only remember the names of two of them by the end. The rest just didn't stand out. The protagonist (Misha Collins) and the antagonist (Hill Harper) were developed enough that the story could carry on with just the two of them. Collins was pretty good, though (I hate to say this because I adore him) a little flat. Harper was, I hope, supposed to be rather flat.
Here's the secret though. It's supposed to be a bad movie. It's a Syfy movie, and all Syfy movies are bad. Some are so bad that they're good. This one is, as my title says, among the best of the bad sci-fi. It's worth watching.
