Review: The Day the Earth Stood Still

Keanu Reeves headlines another big sci-fi production, and the looming title makes you curious. The movie however, seems a bit small scale, even with moderately budgeted effects. The movie poster makes it looks like Independence Day times 5, but the movie doesn’t reflect this.
The story is linear all the way, and it follows a predictable path. Characters are that interestingly written besides the obvious cliches, and a text book ending is something you didn’t wish for as well.
This movie is disappointingly average. So much for a Christmas box office surprise.6½.
