DARKER VERSION OF CLOSE ENCOUNTERS

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 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.

Dark Skies: A great movie meant for people who like a good scare.

This movie was pretty creepy,scary, but pretty awesome. Since I am 12, I'm going to say that this was one of the best movies I have ever seen over my 12 years on Earth. By looking at the TV trailer, it looks like ghosts are doing all the weird things that go on in the Barret's house. But no! It is ALIENS! Based on the storyline, kids that are under the age of around 8 years old should not see this movie. If I were 7 or 8, I would scream my head off in the theater and wet the bed in my sleep. So you get it now. DO NOT TAKE LITTLE JOHNNY TO SEE THIS ALIEN HORROR MOVIE! When I saw this movie, you don't know how many teenage girls screamed their heads off in their boyfriends face. The end. But really. SEE THIS MOVIE!!! IT IS SOOO SCARY!!!!!!!!

It would have been a better movie if i was watching it at home in my bed. So basically for TV.. As for Watching it on the big screen it wasn't bad, but it wasn't great. Certain parts were good, but the end let me down. hard to rate, because there was good parts and bad parts,

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.
