I loved this movie. I wasn't excited at the beginning to watch something about aliens thinking that it wouldn't be a 'scary movie' but then it touched on so many emotions. The actors were so real, I totally saw them as a family going through this horrible nightmare. The father was really annoying at the beginning and his face bugged me with all the close ups and his tired face. I guess he did play the 'bitter husband not getting any' really well. But I didn't like the way they'd focus on him so much.. I was thinking this guys an **shole. I was happy he got the implant and not her.....(heeheehee) The way the camera moved and timing really sets a mood. It only scares you if you think it's possible for this to happen and I'm not a scientist but I'm not stupid to think it can't. The theatre was totally quiet once the credits started. This is totally not for kids and it's pg-13 but I wouldn't take sensitive 13 or 14 year old to it. Younger Teenagers talking about oral sex.

I hate the way aliens look so I had to get someone to watch this movie before I did to let me know whether you see their faces or not. HAHA
Dark Skies was pretty awesome! The story was written well and the cast was good. I liked the fact that I didn't get bored with the movie because there was a lot of suspense going on as you waited to see what was going to happen next.
I actually enjoyed an alien movie and didn't have to see an alien face, thank goodness. Check it out!!

Decent film. The acting was so-so but the storyline kept my attention even though you could figure out the ending halfway through the movie. I give it a 6 out of 10.

This is one of those movies that once you watch it, you realize that it easily could have been a 4 hour movie... there were some inconsistency issues, but not enough to take away from the action... it is a "things jump out from nowhere" type scare without the loud sound effect that usually accompanies the scare attempt... and it works really well because the visually scary parts are perfect! I loved the directors ability to always have you suspenseful and on the edge of your seat thinking to yourself "OMG what's about to happen is going to be horrifying, but I can't even fathom what it will be!" Although I don't think that they get you as emotionally involved in the characters as they needed to, they still connected you with them on a human level, which was plenty to keep you involved.... but the overall feel of the movie was that of "if this stuff is true, we really have no control over what they can and cannot do....completely helpless"...
2 thumbs moderately up from me...

I enjoyed the movie, excellent effects - definately spooky. The ending confused me though - the ending was too abrupt and I heard other people in the audience go, huh?
Other than that - good movie.
