Storyline Heading
Klaatu lands his spaceship in Washington D.C. with the goal of meeting with the leaders of Earth to warn that the violence that man is committing against man actually threatens the survival of other civilizations in the universe. With the help of Gort, his giant robotic bodyguard, Klaatu eludes the authorities who attempt to capture him and immerses himself in human culture to gain a better understanding of a species that seems committed to conflict and destruction.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Sci-Fi Thriller - This is a sci-fi remake with a number of effects-laden sequences, but this is more of a dramatic piece than an action film. Fairly minimal language and graphic violence make the film appropriate for older children. Fans of the top-billed stars Keanu Reeves and Jennifer Connelly will likely enjoy.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average The Day the Earth Stood Still, is far from a perfect motion picture. Parts of the movie are contrived and there are gaps in logic and common sense. That being said, it's a powerful and compelling motion picture with something specific to say about the human condition.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average 'The Day the Earth Stood Still' need not have taken its title so seriously that the plot stands still along with it.

USA Today Full Review
Average Actually, a good portion of this sci-fi disaster movie is unintentionally comical. And the parts that aren't funny are just plain dull.

The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 82 moviegoers:
TEENS:A few of the males and females loved this movie, however most rated it "Very Good," which is good but not great. Unfortunately, a large percentage of both the males and females rated it low to very low, especially females.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:A little better than half of the males and females enjoyed this movie, but their reviews aren't really high. Most rated it just above average. Plus, quite a few rated it pretty low.
ADULTS:These reviews aren't too great. Only a very small percentage loved this movie. A few more rated it above average, but most rated it low to very low. The male and female reviews are very similar.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
In THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL, a contemporary reinvention of the 1951 science fiction classic, renowned scientist Dr. Helen Benson (Jennifer Connelly) finds herself face to face with an alien called Klaatu (Keanu Reeves), who travels across the universe to warn of an impending global crisis.

When forces beyond Helen's control treat the extraterrestrial as a hostile and deny his request to address the world's leaders, she and her estranged stepson Jacob (Jaden Smith) quickly discover the deadly ramifications of Klaatu's claim that he is "a friend to the Earth.” 

Now Helen must find a way to convince the entity who was sent to destroy us that mankind is worth saving – but it may be too late.

The process has begun.

Mankind has long been fascinated by the possibility of life beyond Earth. Science fiction literature and films have served to not only entertain, but to address our questions, hopes and fears about extraterrestrial life. Such speculation has captivated our collective imagination and inspired the development of new technology to explore the farthest reaches of our universe and the very real possibility that we are not alone.
