Haha! Oh, man...
In the first minute, in the voices of several children, they give us a quick prologue -- the invasion, what happened, and what the aliens are doing. It's like Formula One storytelling. Zooooooom! Entire plot of every alien invasion movie in 60 seconds. GO GO!
Then we go into Terminator flashbacks. I mean... The resistance out hunting for food and being hunted in turn by the scary aliens.
Okay, okay... So the aliens rule the planet. There's nobody left but scattered bands of resistance. They have NO means of fighting back. And the main resistance group is just hanging out about a mile from the city in full view of the mothership, above ground, with fires blazing at night.
Kind of like in V: The Final Battle when the entire LA resistance made an abandoned movie ranch their HQ. Because the alien overlords aren't going to notice several hundred heavily armed people wandering around out in the open, right?
Also, when making a despair-filled PA story, you don't have to have characters keep saying, "I wish everything was back the way it was."
Well, yes. Of course you do.
1am, so I'm quitting at the end of part one. Which ended with a touching scene of children skateboarding poignantly.
A mass exodus out of the city is the last scene of part one -- largely unarmed, and in broad daylight -- as the resistance quits and heads to the country. I guess the aliens don't send out patrols, eh? Or have any monitoring devices at all.
