Skyline

This sci-fi thriller is from the Strause brothers, the directors of AVPR: Aliens vs Predator - Requiem and visual effect specialists who've worked on Avatar, Iron Man 2 and 300.

Bizarre blue lights descend on Los Angeles, drawing people outside of their homes and work like moths to a flame. This is an extraterrestrial force threatening to swallow the entire human population...

Not a boring movie

This movie will keep you interested somewhat by not knowing what is coming up next.It is well put together with good special affects.The ending is left to the viewer to finish the story which is frustrating.It is worth a look if curious.

Awful.

I'm a sucker for the apocalyptic, smash-and-bash, alien invasion blockbuster. I hated this movie, and walked out halfway through. Don't waste the price of admission. There are cheesy mini-series "events" on TV now and then which are a LOT better than this tinny little movie. AVOID.

Refreshing and Spectacular

Wow! Well I liked the film. It's a smaller fare focusing on a group of friends trying to stay alive during an alien invasion instead of the usual arm up and fight back features. Refreshingly different and the visual effects are spectacular, but they would be since the directors own the effects company on the film.

should of been titled "cloudy" not skyline

ok i sort of got the plot at the end but a lot of pretty brainless stuff happened for most of the movie, spunky lead charactor played by Eric Balfour is probly the only thing saving the movie

BORING

One of the most monotonous movies I have ever seen, bad acting, stupid plot and terrible ending sum this up. Even my partner (a huge science fiction fan) thought this movie was a waste of time and money.

An underwhelming and derivative sci-fi thriller that's only marginally more impressive than a run-of-the-mill SyFy Channel telepic.

Some obvious comparables for Skyline are "Independence Day" and Steven Spielberg's "War of the Worlds," but there is nothing here that even approaches the comic-book verve of the first or the churning dread of the second.

Beyond the dazzling "first contact" sequences seen in the trailers, Skyline is a spasmodic and incoherent shambles hampered by an astoundingly stupid screenplay.

Technically ambitious, dramatically basic. Still, it's a major step up from an AvP sequel and delivers all the Saturday night whizz-bang and Sunday morning brain-ripping you could want.
