Ended up watching this movie with my wife. Special effects were so-so, but the contents are rather interesting. Getting attacked by the so-called "aliens" who chose to use the EMP followed by a world wide tsunami.

Did anyone else have a chance to watch it? Any opinions?

Have not seen (or even heard of) it but post-apocalyptic and aliens? It's now on my to-do list. :)

I actually watched this twice. My husband and I love sci-fi and dystopian movies so we watch them all, even the ones that could be on MST3000.

Sounds like a game plan we have seen before and will again in the future

1st wave - electromagnetic pulse
2nd wave - Manipulate the planet's geology and fault lines to produce mega-tsunamis and earthquakes to take out coastal populations and islands.
3rd wave - biological warfare - in this case a manipulated strain of avian flu.
4th wave - Aliens (TPTB) show up to help survivors, separate kids from parents and then kill all the parents. blame the killings on those pesky aliens.
5th wave - Brain wash the children and have them help kill of the remnants of undesirables and rebuild a new society.

Maybe the 4th and 5th wave explains all of the poor houses,orphan trains and the empty cities.
