The start of the movie was also promising with the intriguing object falling out of the sky.

Yeah, you can find a lot of problems with this film, from some of the characters being too cliché to the (I can't believe I'm saying this) lack of special effects, in a few scenes, that would have added weight to the movie.

Because dumb can be occasionally entertaining, but this idiocy is just excruciatingly boring.

If it seems slow at first, just ride it out a little bit.

Certainly there was zip potential in combining left-wing propaganda with alien contact.

The mood shots are overly drawn out, the scripting is average, and the acting feels forced at times to try and deliver emotion and message when it's just not needed.

Slow and full of clichés .

I think the worst sin the producers of this film committed is that they made a very intriguing trailer that far outshined the movie itself.

More appropriate language is redundant and boring.

Unfortunately it was fairly predictable, certain performances weren't the best of the best and the concept was again post-apocalyptic.

Very hard to follow.

When i finished this movie.. I find it meaningful and i enjoyed it.. I don't see there is any problem with this movie and certainly its not boring to me.. I hope there are people out there who are willing to give a shot watching this movie and enjoyed it like i did.

Jai Koutrae, Kendra Appleton, and Todd Lasance turn out terrific, understated performances; the script is compelling and held my interest from the opening moments.

It does know exactly that it can only cite because a lot of those scenes are very well known already, which makes it even more intense in my opinion.

) But, I guess what I liked about this one is that I felt that they did a very good job with what they had to work with, and crafted a suspenseful and entertaining (and I might add somewhat heart-wrenching) film that I felt came across as strongly above average for a movie like this.

It is a slow story, gloomy, antiwar and anti rampant Americanism.

Fact is, the movie is not a disaster, but it is not a well made movie, it lacks lot of consistency, it is quite flat, poor and boring.

A shoddy, stale-looking, dull sci-fi that manages to make alien contact as mundane as ordering French Fries.

It's a really good film it's engaging more in a drama sort of way than a thrilling sci-fi.

excellent movie - compelling story, cinematography, sound effects, script .

When I say SciFi I dont mean the Independence Day, MIB, Star Wars type Science Fantasy movies but the more cerebral, drama driven flicks that rely more on the slow paced buildup against set against a scifi background.

Yet I found it an enjoyable film to watch in between.

So it is boring.

I almost did not want to waste time to watch this movie due to some negative comments of few critics who says its boring etc...

"Terminus" is a B movie, with characters that are just a bit too generic or who don't sell their roles completely, and with a plot that kind of adds up but also feels a bit thin while also feeling drawn out.

It is boring.

So far so good but after an hour into the movie you realize it's getting boring.

Waste of time.

As others noted Kendra Appleton who plays the daughter has an empathetic performance (though again, lacking background), and Jai Koutrae who plays her dad is convincing, and also Agent Stipe is a piece of work in a compelling way.

But even if you're willing to overlook such things, the pacing is so slow as to make the viewer wonder if he's made a mistake renting or streaming it.

Those two elements along with the compelling story line, well thought out characters, acting and script, make this movie really great.

Overall, I wouldn't recommend this movie, it's a waste of time 4/10.

All of this is put in a blender and poured out in the hopes that it will be a tasty sci-fi smoothie, but in reality we are served a nutritionally complete, but somewhat bland, paste.

I can see why this movie might look like one big cliché.

The effects are decent but scarce and boring.

Dialogue is so slow, and dramatic pauses are so long, and the plot is so glacial, that it's difficult to keep interested.

It did what it said on the box and was entertaining enough to pass the time - if you watch a lot of movies.

Not great, but definitely worth watching.
