Well, what I read about it kind of addresses some of the complaints I have heard
1) The technical breakthrough is the fact that this was shot only with one camera. Added to this, a single camera film with special effects is even more of breakthrough
2) The style of the film was supposed to be shot from the aspect of a bystander. So for there to be things that the watcher doesn't understand about the whole situation.
this isn't the first movie to use a "home camera" type of aspect to shoot a movie, the most popular one i can think of it that does it was blairwitch project, and even on a smaller budget they made it better. there have been many other movies to use this technique.
and the fact that a fallen sattalite is the thing that makes this monster wake up and go crazy and destroy NYC is ridiculous..
ps- as well known, this is a JJ abrams films, and this is exactly like every other movie hes been apart of.. the lost, or whatever that movie was, was cool for 10 minutes then became boring. he's very good at creating hype around his movies, but they always tend to dissapoint.
get ready trekkies to be dissapointed come december time.
