I waited some time to see this.
I feel that if this really occurred, the resident humans would treat the aliens in a similar fashion...if they let us. It was apparent that they had higher technology than the present day human society, but somehow - thru circumstance - allowed the human to rule their lives.
I did not understand why they allowed the humans to break into their Mothership without a fight. I think they were in a weakened state...?
The CGI was excellent and the insectoids were as real as the actors.
Personally, I would come back with an rescue/invasion force....
I dig the movie.

This is a very well done film, but I can't say that I liked it. It is gritty and, as intended, made me feel exceedingly uncomfortable. Glad I saw it, but I am not certain that I will ever see it again. I think my feeling about it says more about me than the film. Sorry if this doesn't make sense. Recommended.
