I've figured out one of the reasons I was not knocked out by the movie, BTW -- 
deus ex machina.

Given the basic plot (which I will not reveal), the real "lesson" being taught 
in this film is that humans are pretty much fucked unless some unspecified 
someone/something (be it alien or theistic) provides a mystical Woo Woo way to 
save us. 

I think this is dumb, on pretty much all levels. It's like Nabby, waiting for 
Maitreya. It's a belief system that actually *prevents* humans from taking 
steps to save themselves.

Having seen the trailer I thought of the film as another one of  Warner 
Brothers "agenda" movies.  This may well not pan out for WB because people are 
getting a little sick of being manipulated by such movies.  But there may be 
enough bored people to get a good turnout at the box office this weekend even 
if they don't like the movie.

WB is in deep shit and having to lay off people.  But that's
      nothing as it is happening to a lot of major corporations.  The
      foolish elite never learned the lessons that even Henry Ford knew
      that if you want to sell product the public better have money to
      buy it.  The attempt of the global elite to turn the masses into
      chickens in coops hopefully will fail miserably.  After all who
      are they to dictate to us how we should live?
