I wanted to like the movie, but the script was pretty bad. I almost busted out laughing when it's revealed the aliens are after gold. Really, gold?
Why not? What would you prefer? Water?

If aliens come for any specific substance, a relatively rare but useful metal sure works better than the usual subjects that aliens seem to want that are plentiful throughout the solar system (and perhaps the universe). Minor rocky planets such as Earth are great places to find rare metals/minerals at low relative cost.
