Colossal Disappointment :-( Worst movie I can remember.

SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT This is one of those movies that look so good from trailers, but when seen in its entirety, reality sets in. This movie looks like an intelligent, well made, alien invasion film. It is not intelligent, and it is not well made. The film quite simply is a cheap sci-fi flick we call “B-movies”. Complete with over the top shrieking women, and macho men who bite off more than they can chew, this film is a total disaster. The story begins nowhere, goes nowhere, and winds up in a mucky & grotesque startling turn for an ending which makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. The film wastes about a half an hour on senseless back story about the unlikable characters, and it does it in such a way that it has absolutely no impact on the story itself. When you take out the senseless and worthless back story/setup, the film has approximately an hour of actual time to do everything else with the alien invasion. Horrible movie, don't bother.

Skyline the worst sci-fi movie I have ever seen in theaters

The film opens with a very similar feel to Cloverfield and to that regard it already kicked my brain out of enjoyment mode and jump-started it into critic mode. Let's just say if I were to grade the actors overall performance, I would give it a C- at best. A huge let down based on the talent I have seen from some of the cast in television shows and past movies. I did notice some unique ideas in this movie, but they were executed very poorly. Throughout the movie I found myself struggling to fill in the gaps in the already lacking plot that desperately needed to be addressed. For example, how did the "alien spaceships" have a perfect socket for the human brain, when this was apparently their first time invading Earth? Now granted, I can see how it is necessary to overstep the bounds of logic to create a great story. However, this oversteps it so far that it just leaves you scratching your head puzzled throughout the course of the film. I would not recommend this movie to anyone.

Skyline plain and simple is an effects showcase... nothing more nothing less. Me and my wife saw commercials and it caught our eyes so when Tuesday $5.00 movie day came along we went to check it out. The plot is basically Jarrod (Eric Balfour), and Jarrod's pregnant girlfriend (Scottie Thompson) go to visit Jarrod's childhood friend (Donald Fazion) in Los Angeles. They go to sleep after a night of partying and Aliens invade and all hell breaks loose. That's it. Now i'm unsure what people where expecting here maybe another Star Wars or A Close encounters of the Third kind but this movie is neither what it is if you leave your high expectations at home is alot of fun. If your into Giants aliens and explosions this is the movie for you. The ending leaves the movie up to sequelitits and I'm more then game. I'd say go see it as a matinee or rent it if your are looking for a fun no brainer of a film.
