So yes. Yes, i think it is a first contact movie. The humans were just to stupid and gun-ho to realize it.
For a movie based on a game, it was a surprisingly fun and enjoyable film.
The first contact concept only works until the "psychic flash" scene (why are aliens always psychic), where one of our heroes learns their true intention is conquest. Even if the aliens had a weird aversion to killing little kids and livestock.. but somehow trashing a highway and all the people filled vehicles on it is ok.
