Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this alien invasion movie has a lot in common with movies like War of the Worlds, Cloverfield, and Independence Day (though it's a lot duller). There are plenty of scary/violent scenes as giant spaceships capture hordes of humans, sucking them up through the sky, and, later, as monstrous aliens eat them. There are also lots of gross special effects, as well as some fighting, military-style action, and guns. Language includes several uses of "s--t," and there are some sexual situations (including implied oral sex) and some drinking.
A man and a woman have implied sex in a bathroom at a party; cheating is suggested. At a party, people spy on the neighbors, and there's some implied oral sex. Girls in bikinis are seen near a swimming pool. The hero's girlfriend is pregnant; there's some discussion around this.
Scary images of humans being abducted into alien spaceships; black veins begin to appear on human victims, and eyeballs turn white. Lots of gross creature effects, such as slime and brains. Giant aliens grab and "eat" humans. A character attacks an alien brain with an ax. Guns are pulled. Jet planes engage in a dogfight with alien ships, and missiles are fired. A character kills himself in a gas explosion in an effort to take out some of the monsters. Lots of arguing.
Several uses of "s--t," plus "oh my God," "hell," "damn," "son of a bitch," "ass," and "goddamn.,"
Aliens attack, randomly, out of nowhere, interrupting the lives and plans of several young adults. The humans want to survive, but they have no real idea how. They try to overcome this major challenge, but nothing they do -- and nothing anyone else does -- has any real effect.
