Skyline Movie Review – Is This The Worst Sci-Fi Ever?
I went to see this movie at my favorite movie theater called the Dunkirk Movieplex 8, 10520 Bennett Road, Dunkirk, NY. I bought some nachos with jalapeno peppers and a small soft drink, which turned out better then watching the Skyline movie.
If you are looking to see a film that is of the same caliber as District 9 or Independence Day, this is not it! I thought the movie trailer for this movie looked pretty good and I was crossing my fingers that this would be an exciting flick, but I was so wrong.
You do get to see strange and beautifully blue lights descend on the city of Los Angeles as people are being pulled towards the extraterrestrials in a trance-like fashion. Although, it was unsettling to see human beings drawn up into huge alien spacecraft’s, there was much more that could have been done on a larger scale, to make this movie a better sci-fi experience.
Even though you get to see at a distance some huge alien space ships, most of the time is spent in a single high-rise building. What you get with this movie is some great telescope watching of a huge extraterrestrial space ship and some killer aliens, that are lacking in hospitality.
As I was slurping on my soft drink, I thought to myself, this has to be one of the worst sci-fi films I’ve seen in a long time. If you’re looking for a complete brain dump of action and mayhem, then this film might appeal to you. I really enjoy sci-fi movies and I was hoping this one would be a winner, but it turned out to be a real dud.
I believe if the script was handled by a more experienced writer and the movie involved a different director, this might have made it past a really bad B movie. I will say that the effects and the action were decent, but the script with bad acting left me wanting to leave the movie theater early.
