I don't think you give this movie it's due. Although it has similarities to several movies it definitely has more than its share of imaginative new ideas and creations. This movie left me in a state of awe over it's seamless special effects. As far as rooting for the other race, we have the ability to be the bad guy and need to understand that, otherwise we don't see the warning signs which include greed which we have been guilty of before. I think it is healthy to understand that if we put ourselves in that kind of position we WOULD be the bad guy. We always need to challenge ourselves to do the right thing. I have seen our Leadership do the wrong thing and the main reason that no one does anything about it is the masses don't believe that it can happen in modern America. Same as could have happened in the Movie. I think it is a good lesson and keep in perspective that "It's only a Movie".
