Here’s some examples of the mundane dialogue that plagued what could have otherwise been an average alien invasion movie.
Aaron Eckhart is comforting an injured soldier on the ground, “You’ll be surfing soon enough, Simmons…”
A different injured soldier on the ground is talking to Aaron Eckhart, “Give this letter to my wife (*cough* *cough*)… That’s an ORDER, staff sergeant…”
A different soldier is moving an injured soldier on the ground into a helicopter, “Everything is gonna be alright! Everything is gonna work out! See you soon, buddy!” (helicopter explodes 10 seconds later)
