Nothing earth-shattering that hasn't been done before. However, you wont be disappointed. On a side note...If your child tells you that he sees aliens or weird things start happening around the house. Just assume he's telling the truth from the get-go and start dealing with it instead of putzing around hoping the really odd occurrences just go away. Does it ever really work out?

This is a nice movie to see on a Saturday night at home, it's got decent chills but if I remember the twist at the end reminded me of an Are you Afraid of the Dark episode called The 13th Floor. Overall just wait for dvd

Dark Skies reminded me of a darker version of Close Encounters of the Third Kind. J.K. Simmons was very believable as the expert on alien abduction. He was an intricate part of piecing the entire story together. I’m of the opinion that less is more when it comes to movies like this, so the fact that you never really saw “the greys” up close in any kind of detail, made it scarier for the audience. Keri Russell does a great job as the mom trying to hold her family together as their world is turned upside down. She’s come a long way since Felicity. I must say, I enjoyed the twist at the end but I did see it coming.

I enjoyed this movie. I liked the realistic family. I liked that it wasn't over the top and I didn't find it predictable at all. Well acted. It has a few jump in your seat parts, but they are brief and the weak hearted can manage them just fine in my opinion. A realistic alien movie ;)

This movie is so slow and I have seen better. In fact X-Files was 10x better than this. I would never see or rent it.
