1.0 out of 5 stars Stupid, stupid, STUPID. Jan. 12 2012
By Michael TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Why does this movie suck so bad? It feels like a test for a special effects company that had a few scenes designed around it/them. The plot as it stands. A group of friends get stuck in a Miami condo when these big bad (and actually cool looking) aliens attack. Group goes from room to room and even out in the street for some more alien action. Group eventually meets up with aliens for final (ridiculous) showdown. The dialogue and acting are so bad (stilted, boring, EYE-rollingly dumb)that the actors make the cast of Independence Day look like Oscar contenders.

I watched this free and wound up fast forwarding at least half the movie as I found it repetetive on top of stupid. I like sci-fi, and one interesting idea deserves a shot. But Cloverfield this is not. Save your time and money and watch the trailer, then go bang your head against some drywall a few times. You'll get the same experience in much less time.

The only reason I got this movie is because the aliens look cool that's it. The whole movie your basically following around some random civilians, that you do not really care if they die, and you never really get to find out what is really going on in the invasion.

2.0 out of 5 stars Skylack Feb. 24 2014
I have the feeling that the Brothers Strause wanted to create an alien invasion movie that was more realistic, focusing on "ordinary" people.

And that isn't a bad idea. But clearly it takes a lot more talent than those brothers have, because "Skyline" is a frustrating mass of "could have beens" and "if onlys." The actors do good jobs and the special effects are absolutely spectacular, but most of the movie is just a bunch of people hanging around an apartment building, bickering with each other.

Jarrod (Eric Balfour) and his girlfriend Elaine (Scottie Thompson) are visiting his best friend Terry (Donald Faison) in Los Angeles, where they party in Terry's skyscraper apartment building. But the fun is interrupted when Terry offers Jarrod a job that would require moving to L.A., which Elaine is not happy about because she has just found out that she is pregnant.

Then giant blue lights fall from the sky -- followed by alien ships that can mesmerize and abduct people. Along with the building manager Oliver (David Zayas), the little group hides in Terry's apartment, and occasionally makes a doomed effort to escape the building. That... pretty much takes up the entire plot except for the last fifteen minutes.

"Skyline" might have been a great story if it had only been forty minutes, maximum. Instead we get a "middle section" that is so dull that you might end up tearing out your OWN brain -- people bicker, cower in fear, bicker again, try to escape, fail to escape, scuttle back into the apartment, et cetera. Eventually you just want the characters to do ANYTHING other than scuttle around the apartment building like beetles.

And yes, it is painfully boring.

Terry (Donald Faison) sees the light after a night of debauchery. Or does the light see him? In any case he's consumed with aliens. This is a real brain teaser. The noisy music is what probably drew aliens with better taste.

I have never seen a more pitiful excuse for a movie. It's the standard invasion movie you know like "War of the Worlds" without the pathos. Even Stephen King would barf. As you know even a Stephen King formula is to keep it almost believable, not inconceivable. A better duffus film like this would be "Independence Day" (1996) with a better actor Bill Pullman.

I suggest you do not waste your time with this ridicules thing and if you must watch something that has aliens walking the streets and peaking in windows watch Target Earth (1954).

Wow, this movie is taking a beating. I rather enjoyed it, but I seem to be in the vast minority here.

There will be some spoilers here, but really, the upshot of my review is that it's a 90% bog standard alien invasion B-movie.

First, the premise. Aliens invade earth, proceed to beam up people into their ships to suck out their brains and "life force". I should note, that this is absolutely no different or more cheesy than other alien B-movies, so picking Skyline apart based on that is unfair. It's not pretending to be a high brow intellectual production.

Here is also revealed the best part of the movie, which sets it apart from virtually every other alien movie, is that we know NOTHING about these aliens. No scientist figures out their language, or hacks into their mothership, or divines their intentions, or finds a trivial way to defeat them through some silly built-in weakness. There is NOTHING. They're just super-technologically advanced beings against whom humanity stands no chance. None. They come in and annihilate everything at will, not a question of how much, but how quickly.

Second, the effects. Most of the movie is special effects. As far as sets and practical effects, the budget was simply too small. Just some dude's apartment and a blue screen. But, the aliens look very cool. As always with special effects, the question is how well they will age. Sure, they look great today, but chances are they will be cheesy by the next decade, if not sooner.

The entertainment value in Skyline comes from the look and atmosphere, and the vision of the aliens themselves. We don't know who they are. They're not interested in negotiations. We don't know how they view us; do we matter, or are we just ants? What are their values?
