Choose life. (Deuteronomy 30:19)

They all look so miserable
Another film of two halves, this time though, the second half is the better one.

After a long series of samey scenes with the usual knowitall-airheads at high school, things get going once nerdy Casey realises that there actually are aliens taking over his teachers.

He and his five misfit friends are completely out of their depth, can't agree what to do, and don't even trust each other, so you know something incredibly lucky is going to have to happen sooner or later.

The film's finale is flawed, (shape-changing alien doesn't shape-change when it needs to) but there are some good lines in here. ("I'm saving my sick days for when I feel better.")

Director Robert Rodriguez does a fair job, and makes this quite watchable, if only in retrospect.
