So I was in the San Diego Comic Con panel for Skyline and have had the opportunity to see more of the movie than just the trailer. I listened to the actors and the Strause brothers talk about Skyline and I am fairly psyched. Is it going to be ID4? No, but it was shot by these two guys with their own money on a shoe string budget. For me this movie harkens back to the old black and white shows like the Blob and It Came From Outer Space. It will still have some pretty decent effects but this is a story about a small group of friends trying to survive during an alien attack. I think its going to be enjoyable and I look forward to seeing it on the big screen.
So that was my review before I seeing the movie going off the buzz from Comic Con. Having now seen the full flick I am severely disappointed. The plot had a great deal of potential, there are moments I enjoyed, but a lot that left me going "what the f@$k!". The ending though...that did it and so if you must see it, rent it.

I should have known the moment I saw Turk from Scrubs that this was going to be one of the worst movies I had ever seen. Terrible acting, predictable nonexistent plot with no point, and the worst dialogue ever uttered in movie history. The characters and their little subplots were annoying and boring. How this movie made it into theaters, I'll never know-this is B movie, straight-to-video kind of quality. The ending was hilarious because they actually left a really obvious opening for a sequel. Yeah right, why would anyone want to endure more of that torture?

It's worse than The Village.

Skyline tells the story of a group of friends caught inside an alien invasion. This movie was absolutely terrible. There was little plot and just a complete waste of time and money. I wouldn't be shocked if this movie didn't go out on DVD to save money for the companies. In conclusion, Skyline was terrible and shouldn't even be in consideration while picking a movie to watch.
