Beyond the dazzling "first contact" sequences seen in the trailers, Skyline is a spasmodic and incoherent shambles hampered by an astoundingly stupid screenplay. show more
Skyline is a piece of junk, even in a movie climate littered with expensive - though sometimes fun - junkiness. show more
Their (The Brothers Strause) effects are pretty good, on a fairly limited budget. And that's about all you can say for Skyline. show more
Plot, acting, dialogue...EVERYTHING fails in this movie. The relationships between the characters aren\'t developed, the dialogue is ridiculous, the plot is boring, and the ending doesn\'t even make sense.
One of the recurrent scifi themes is alien invasion. After that there is usually a human guerilla opposition that somehow finds a way... Think War of the Worlds, Independence Day, Battle: Los Angeles, etc. but then give it a hugely dark spin with a \"60\'s\" ending. I watched this as a free rental and would never sit through it again. Ture, the various elements had moments of promise but the main characters kept being replaced. Oh, well...
