A refreshing plot twist on alien abduction theme. Very good character development, especially
well portrayed by the principal actors. Kerri Russell, the mother, did a fantastic job! Please note that this is not an "action" movie, it has a slower pace than a typical alien movie; more story development, not as much gore--but still "horrific".

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!!

I was automatically hooked when I initially saw the trailor for this movie I thought it had a cool premise and would be very thrilling. After I saw this movie I will say I kinda felt a little cheated. The acting was ok but the story although errie at times was ultimalty dissapointing. the big twist which most of these types of movies have was weak and just made you say..OK whoop de-do. If you can hold off to rent it I would say do so but if you were captivated by the trailor such as I was then go and be prepaird to be let down.

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 don't really enjoy "alien movies," but this movie was great and the actors were fantastic. Not as scary as I thought it was going to be, but acting made up for it. Definitely worth the money spent.
