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 am not sure what movie these people have seen. This movie steals from every alien and
sci fy from Body Snatcher to Blair Witch. Lousy and NO ending. Boring and unanswered questions throughout. Better off renting Poltergeist which this film copies anyway.

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.

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?
