Movie: The Forgotten

I just watched the movie The Forgotten starring Julian Moore. Mildly entertaining, a bit predictable, over all okay. The acting was good enough and the plot was semi-interesting, but it lacked something. I'm not sure what that something is, but I know that its not there. The movie is about a woman named Telly (everytime I heard her name I thought of the sesame street character named Telly) who has memories of her son named Sam. The twist (one of several... )everyone around her doesn't seem to remember him and thinks she is crazy. She enlists the help of a fellow parent; Ash, who has forgotten his child but soon starts to remember (the connection between the two, her son and his daughter were friends) thus begins their adventure to find out the truth. Long story short.... (don't read if you don't want to find out the "big twist"... really not much of a twist!) aliens have been conducting experiments on earth, possibly since the beginning of time and part of our government (the NSA and FBI) and a few select random people have known and helped to keep human kind safe. This particular experiment: they abducted several children going on an airplane to summer camp (Telly's son and Ash's daughter being one of the children on board), had the plan dissappear thus making everyone assum its crashed and starts to erase the parents memories and everyone who ever knew about them or were related to them just to see how the human memory and the bond between children and their parents work. Only thing is Telly was the only one that kept holding on to her memories of her son. Not much of a twist, half way through the movie I had it pretty much figured out. The only really good thing about the movie was the plot line of the deep connection between a mother and her child... hence the reason why Telly (a mother) simply could not be made to forget her son by aliens. I think the movie had a lot of potential but the alien twist was not done well and should have been cut out. I think a better writer could have come up with something better than aliens. I think the aliens did it plot is a bit worn out. SO, if you have some time and nothing better is available to rent you could do worse than The Forgotten.
