Aaron Eckhart is fucking phenomenal. You can see that his character Nantz is just so damn tired, not of his job exactly, but from losing so many good men under his command. He keeps everything in check emotionally yet you can see that what is happening to him and his unit is getting to him and he does what needs to be done to try and get them to safety.
When Nantz repels down from the helicopter to recon what he thinks is the alien's command and control center and the rest of the unit immediately follows without orders that just nails me in the gut... every damn time!
And the gorgeous and tough Michelle Rodriguez is an added bonus to the flick and for once she's in a action movie and doesn't freaking die! This made me extremely happy.
I know some people didn't like the movie because of the camera action. Not me, I love the camera work on it.
