At the start of this film it looks acted, and badly so. It's like something from a sitcom. Lines like "I just think she should of told us the guy
was black is all", were delivered in a really fake tone. I have no problem with the line itself i just have a problem with the lack of real care in
the voice. Try having a friend write something and then read it out, the lines sounded remembered and mechanical. When they finally spot the "craft"
and it's occupants the acting becomes better though. The voices, excited yet worried, a mix of heavy breathing and shuffling, wanting to run and
wanting to stay. The camera zooms in and out badly and shakes a little, all very nice touches.
Now we come to the "laser weapon/scalpal". They were using it to cut open a cow, which suggests a close quarter thing and yet the "alien" uses it
at long range. The scalpal causes someone to fall over and yet it's a cutting instrument. Obviously we cannot speculate on technology but it seems to
me it was a laser just becuase of how it was being used and the fact you could see a thin beam of light. I think this was a cheap laser pen of the
type used for presentations.
Now the house, the acting again goes downhill, father going out alone etc. Now for me i would want everyone to stay together in one room with
hopefully only a door. I would have stayed there with a gun pointing at that door. Running outside and so leaving my family behind would not fit well
with me. It seems he did blow a hole in the door rather than a special effect, i may be wrong but that's how it seemed. Actually that worries me as
he couldn't really see where that round/shot was going. That is a silly point with no standing on the case but it just annoyed me lol.
The nice touches were "I think i wet my pants", very very nice that. It made it sound more realistic as who would want to put that on video unless
it was true right? The tape survived, this is truly stupid. If an alien race or the government had taken that family out then they would have stripped
the house of evidence, it just makes sense that if they are trying to be covert they would remove evidence.
The transformer. Well that is interesting, transformers once they have blown can keep discharging like that for a while. Becuase it just happened it
could be real although anyone with an internet connection can find out how to make convincing sparks, or they could buy small fireworks and set them
off electronically. I would like to know how it blew, IF it was even blown, The sparks seem to come from behind it which suggests that some fireworks
or effects are hidden behind it.
The "UFO" seems large but because it is dark, the people seem near it thugh and it gices a good comparison. There may be a camera trick going on
that i don't know about, i don't think they were using false perspective but it is dark so who knows. If they did build that i am impressed just for
the commitment of it lol. I wonder if somewhere this structure still exists, maybe someone built it for fun and they decided to make use of it.
Finally. If a family like this goes missing with this many people then i would expect to see massive stories. The ones i have found so far are small
and from questionable websites.
Well just my thoughts.
